A to Z of kiasu mentality

By | February 19, 2006

Always must win
Borrow but never return
Cheap is good
Don’t trust anyone
Everything also must grab!
Free! Free! Free!
Grab first talk later
Help yourself to everything
I first, I want, I everything
Jump queue
Keep coming back for more
Look for discount
Must not lose face
Never mind what people think
Outdo everyone you know
Pay only when necessary
Quit while you are ahead
Rushing and pushing wins the race
Samples are always welcome
Take but don’t give
Unless something is free, forget it!
Vow to be number one
Winner takes it ALL! ALL! ALL!
Yell if necessary to get what you want
Zebras are kiasu because they want to.

P.S. Are you quite sure about the last one?

So how kiasu are you? Take the Kiasu Meter test and find out.

    Great article. However, the Kiasu Meter scoring button doesn’t work. After I input my answers and click the button, nothing happens.
