Does your country have “tall poppy syndrome”?

Recommended Posts

  • Administrator

Tall poppy syndrome is a very Australian thing. Basically, we cut people down if they are achieving something good as we tend to see it as them being an arrogant bastard. 

Let’s just say some celebrity was bragging about the size of their house, we’re gonna mock them for being a clout. We expect people to be humble, especially our celebrities. This mentality can obviously be a bad thing at times because it discourages people from taking risks. 

In comparison, it’s been said countries like America, are very eager to encourage ideas even if they’re stupid. This could explain why America had a strong start up mentality.

What’s your country’s culture like?
