Are Chinese more intelligent than Indians?

I am from Indian origin, and had have tremendous amount of interaction with Chinese, in Canada for more than 41 years,I do not believe one is superior than the other, however both are extremely hard working, and quest for higher learning,But the difference is knowledge of English, once that gap is closed, it will be neck to neck competition, which is more or less we are seeing in Canada.Second generation Chinese Canadian are cut throat competitor, go and check the list of specialist in any Canadian hospital,
Saute to extremely highly disciplined Chinese Canadian community.

They aren’t, it seems to be !
If all indians are given same tutorial they would be more intelligent than chinese – the intelligence is not something you are born with, you have to nourish it !

statistically yes, the reason why Indians in america is doing very well is because the Indians in america are the best of India, while the best of china stay in china, that’s why china is progressive and India is not. Indians in US is brain draining India.
Chineses are smarter than Indians for sure. Especially, chineses always want to learn new things. While Indians have a better social skills and their language is closer to indo-European language background so that Indians have more benefits to learn English. It’s true. So, Chineses and Indians are different. Your question is actually confusing. Are you asking about learning English ability or learning deep knowledge? Or good business skills? Etc…

Overall China is more “developed” than India, whichever way you look at it. And the possible reasons are : let’s face it – Chinese are more hard working and disciplined than Indians. But also because Chinese autocratic governance have far higher enforcement abilities in their disposal.
Coming to the argument of “intelligence” : China is ethnically and culturally very homogeneous Nation. And Chinese gover*nt have created far more effective (and mandatory) school education system, which undoubtedly makes a random sample of Chinese school students better performing than Indian counterparts.
Real comparison would be comparing Indian and Chinese creme de la creme – the brain drain immigrants in “neutral” grounds like USA or UK. And there they perform equally well. However, if Corporate presence in high-skilled STEM sector is any indicator, then Indians outperform the Chinese.
Even in Chinese dominated Singapore, Indian origin school students outperform Chinese in more technically intensive A level (in spite of lagging behind both Chinese and Malays in more rote-learning dependent O-level ). Google : Indian Singaporeans (Wiki). Additionally Indians are more likely to have tertiary education than any other migrant groups.
This analysis doesn’t “prove” by any stretch that as a RACE, Indians are better than Chinese. Just like Shanghai school students’ Maths and reading comprehension scores doesn’t prove otherwise.
这一分析并不能从任何角度证明，作为一个种族，印度人比中国人更优秀。就像上海学生的数学和阅读理解分数一样，并不能证明什么。 5.I was in Paris last year. In all its museums – Louvre, Musée d’Orsay, Musée d’Art Moderne, and even the minor ones, you will find the Chinese by the bus loads. But not more than handful of Indians will be spotted in such places. Of course, you will find Indians atop the Eiffel tower, towards which all the Patel tourist buses head! And similar observations can be made across many cities of Europe and US. What do we infer from this? I have a theory: the PRC is encouraging its citizens to learn European civilization at its root by visiting all these museums. Why? Without a doubt, the PRC harbors the ambition of unseating the “decadent” West and one of the ways it hopes to do that is by understanding the West’s intellectual underpinning. So whether the Chinese are more intelligent or not, I do not know, but they are definitely more “intelligence respecting” and “intelligence admiring” !
These are some of my observations on this subject!
