Question:
论坛上的提问:

Dear Mr. Billy,
亲爱的Billy先生,

Thus far in my life I have noticed, much to their credit, the Jewish people living among us seem to rise to positions of prominence in their chosen fields far in excess of what is ordinarily expected from their small numbers as a percentage of the population.
到目前为止,在我的人生中,我有注意到,生活在我们之中的‘Jewish people/犹太人’都是值得称赞的,他们在其所选择的领域中…似乎都到达了突出的地位,这远远超出了人们通常…对其在全球人口中占很小比例…所给予的预期。

Maybe this is due to their focus and the importance they stress on rising to the top and reaching their goals of success.
也许,这是由于他们的‘focus/专注’,以及他们所强调的…登上顶峰并达成其成功目标…的重要性。

They seem to have a better developed will to succeed in the material matters.
他们似乎有一个…在‘material matters/物质领域’取得成功的…更成熟的「Will/意志」。

Of course this is a generalization and not all Jews fit in this category.
当然,这是一个泛论,并不是所有的「Jews/犹太人」都属于这一类。

However, is this a correct assessment in your judgment, and does the mechanism work as a genetically transmitted trait (passed down to the offspring both through the genes and in the behavior/training/thinking of the children by the parents, elders, etc)?
但是,在您的判断中,这是一种正确的评估吗(?),还有,该机制是否是做为…一种‘genetically transmitted trait/遗传性状’…发挥作用的呢(通过「Genes/基因」,以及「Children/孩子们」父母或长辈的‘behavior/training/thinking/言传身教’等,传递给「Offspring/新生代」)?

Answer:
来自FIGU的回复:

The Jews have been oppressed for centuries.
「Jews/犹太人」已经被压迫了几个世纪。

They were not allowed to freely work in all professions etc.
他们不被允许…在所有职业中…自由地工作。

Therefore, they had to struggle above average to survive and to gain acknowledgment, etc.
因此,为了生存,他们不得不拼搏以‘struggle above average/出人头地’,并(以此)获得(世人的)认可等。

This is not genetically induced, but has to do with evolution and their culture.
这并不是由遗传诱导的,而是与「Evolution/进化」及其「Culture/文化」有关。

This culture is handed down and expanded/broadened to following generations.
这种「Culture/文化」被传承下来,并扩展/拓展至后代。

As has been, and still is, the case with many minority populations, the members are helping and preferring each other (who are of the same religion, origin, race, clan, etc.).
就像是过去,以及现在仍然如此的…许多‘minority populations/少数民族’的情况一样,成员们彼此帮助和友爱(这些人有着相同的「Religion/宗教」、「Origin/身世」、「Race/种族」、「Clan/氏族」等)。

Note by CF:
来自Christian Frehner的注释:

Last week I read an interesting article by Siegfried Kohlhammer in ‘Das Magazin 50-2006’ [www.dasmagazin.ch] about ‘Was den Erfolg ausmacht’ = ‘What brings about success’.
上周,我在‘Das Magazin 50-2006’「www.dasmagazin.ch」读到了一篇由Siegfried Kohlhammer发表的…关于‘Was den Erfolg ausmacht/是什么让成功成为现实’=‘What brings about success/什么带来成功’的…有趣文章。

The question:
(其中)有一个问题:

Why are China and India economically successful?
为什么「China/中国」和「India/印度」…会在经济上取得成功?

And why are so many African and Islamic countries failing?
还有…为什么这么多的‘African countries/非洲国家’和‘Islamic countries/伊斯兰国家’…都失败了?

The answer:
答案是:

Culture is the main reason.
「Culture/文化」是主因。

Among the information I picked out this one:
我从中摘选了这一条信息:

The Jews are less than 1 percent of terrestrial population, but brought forth 16 percent of all winners of the Nobel Price.
「Jews/犹太人」的人口不到‘terrestrial population/陆地总人口’的1%,却占据了全体「Nobel Price/诺贝尔奖」获得者的将近16%。
