And to elaborate on why I think many returned immigrants are arrogant, here is another piece of useful info.
Many blindly swallow up the, 'My right to privacy' mentality while in the West because privacy is a huge matter in the West, more so than in the East! In the Chinese social context people don't talk much about privacy; they readily tell friends, or organisations their date of birth, age, salary etc when required to fill in forms.
Here is a true story. A Chinese returnee, when asked for her personal particulars when checking into a hotel in China, refused to co operate with frontdesk, citing her right to privacy, not to reveal her date of birth etc.
Hotels in China are required by law to register all guests or face heavy penalties. This lady argued left right and center when asked for relevant information about her, citing her right to privacy. The hotel refused to accept her if she did not comply; she finally complied, or else she would have to camp outside for the night!
The point here is that the right to privacy is very much a Western concept which this lady blindly swallowed and tried to apply it in her erstwhile homeland!
This unfortunately, is what happens when Chinese move abroad and return with a green card and an air of superiority, demanding that China complies to her Western style demands!
