Facts vs misconceptions

March 12, 2018

In our imaginary visions, we often would like to think a tall, dark and handsome man must be intelligent and rich. Therefore he can easily become advantageous in society and people vote for him as their leader in hopes for a good fortune.

Well, size matters indeed in some ways. However, I’d like to draw your attention to some facts, in contrast to what we commonly perceive how a super rich should look like. For example, Mr. Masayoshi Son, the founder of SoftBank and the richest man in Japan, is only about 1.5 meters (4’11”) in height, and China’s richest man, the founder of Alibaba, Mr. Yun Ma (Jack Ma) is about 1.58 meters (5’2”) in height.

They are undoubtedly the greatest and most intelligent men in modern era. So perhaps the media should help people to avoid creating a stereotype.
