Anyway, I've lived in Asia for a long time. I see lots of asians all the time. I have private students who are engineers. One of my students, a really good example of what I'm trying to get across, went to Kaist. If you're Korean you've probably heard of it. It's the top technical college in Korea. He is constantly impressed by the verbal abilities of the lawyers, Korean and non-Korean, he needs to collaborate with on group projects. And he's the lead engineer for a team of engineers working for LG. He would disagree with you, and so do I.
There are no dumb doctors.
There are many dumb lawyers.
Anyways this argument is silly. I was just working the whole Asian culture thing - something I grasp much better than you.
Stop taking everything so literally.
You telling me you've never had a completely incompetent doc? Whom you looked at and thought: how the hell did you get through med school, you moron?? Lucky you. haha
What do you call someone who graduated at the bottom of their class in med school?
But that doesn't necessarily mean that the doctor in question is dumb.
