Negative Filipino Values

“Bahala Na”
This trait means leaving everything to chance or “letting the circumstances take care of itself”. It implies fatalism under the pretext of trusting in Divine providence. By saying “bahala na”, a person resigns himself to luck as he believes the end-result depends ultimately on fate. It is a Filipino’s way of avoiding rationalization or good reason. It is the same as saying, “Que sera sera (whatever will be, will be)”.

The Filipino’s “bahala na” attitude is everywhere and with everyone. It could apply on big or small circumstances. For instance, a student who suddenly feels lazy to do his homework will just say “bahala na”. In this case, he resigns himself to whatever could happen in class the next day.

This negative Filipino trait tends to be the cause of laziness by so many people. A lot of poor people resign themselves to the kind of life they have thinking that it is what God meant for them to have and He will take care of their needs. Their belief is that life finds a solution for itself.

“Ningas Kugon”
Filipinos are fond of starting a project with so much enthusiasm. This enthusiasm is so contagious that it spreads like wildfire. At the first sign of problem or difficulty, this enthusiasm is consumed as fast as it has spread. This is the quintessential Filipino trait “ningas kugon” meaning “grassfire”.
This trait is the reason for the Filipino’s “show-off” attitude; why so many projects are left unfinished and government officials corrupt.

“Crab Mentality”
The picture is this: when you put several crabs in a crate, they will all try to climb out in order to break free. You’ll observe that when one gets a bit ahead, the other crabs will pull him down. A lot of Filipinos are like these crabs. Whenever one sees another progressing in their own field, others become resentful and instead of seeing the achievement of that person, they will try to highlight everything negative about him in an effort to bring him down or tarnish if not lessen the person’s newly-acquired good image. It is an unhealthy competition in a way.
Instead of doing things that could help one to develop and become better than his competitors, Filipinos devote so much of their time gossiping and back-biting. It is their way of deviating people’s attention on their inadequacy by focusing on other people’s faults.

“Patigasan“
This means resisting all efforts to a reconciliation. Because of the Filipino “amor propio” or ego-defensiveness, it is very difficult for them to surrender their pride. It is noticeable that most Filipinos find it difficult to say the word “sorry”. It’s better for them to act tough (”matigas”) rather than say sorry because to do the same is to sacrifice their precious pride.

Mañana or “Bukas na”
This is the Filipino habit of leaving for tomorrow what they can do today. Most Filipinos have this habit of postponing their actions for a later time thus reducing accomplishments. Filipinos are fond of saying “bukas na lang” (I’ll do it tomorrow) due to laziness. As a result, the work they produce is crammed. This arises from an indolent mentality that a problem will go away by itself.

“Kanya-kanya“(to each his own)
This is the Filipino self-centeredness and lack of regard for others. This happens when most people are similarly situated such us in a calamity and in instances where family is involved as “blood is thicker than water”.
In instances however when the others sis not meet the same fate, the Filipino helpfulness comes out. If one is able to help another without danger to himself and his family, they will readily extend a helping hand.

“Balimbing”
A reference to the many-sided star fruit, the term is applied to someone who changes allegiance for personal convenience. The allusion is that the person is not only double-faced, but multiple-faced. This was evident in the Marcos downfall where his cronies and enemies turned against him and embraced the Aquino government. These people are said to be “balimbing”.

and true, we filipinos really have those traits...
as if the rest of the world doesn't have even one of those traits...

hhmmm i wonder which of those traits YOU DO HAVE...

avishai

hmm...

an old issue, but lets say we make a comment on that.

"Bahala Na"
this is not different to the context of "inshaallah", wherein one resides his faith to god's way. This phrase is incomplete for when most of filipinos uttered it the following words come along, "Bahala Na... si lord!" (meaning let god do decide or just take care of it), not just circumstances i believe, for it's what they've been brought up with, believing fully with god's providence. It's only negative when one does not take actions along with it. Well god does not tell he'll be doing things 100%, we also need to do our share.

if "bahala na" is that negative, then "inshaallah" would mean negative, or only do people think it is?

next...

are true but not "most". All Pinoys have experienced to practice such traits once-in-a-while but as everybody says, not only us but people in the world have suck kind of attitude, one way or the other.

These traits make us what we are and you'll be surprised to see so many Filipinos who are the opposite of these traits.

Anyway, you lost a lovely lady today that goes by the name Azilana, you annoyed her. But I'll be a good lawyer of yours if you want to win her back! Lol!!!!

The greatest part of our happiness depends on our dispositions, not in our circumstances.To succeed, we must first believe that we can. Sooner or later, those who win are those who think they can. But for those who beleive in these traits “Bahala Na”,“Ningas Kugon”,“Crab Mentality”,and others, will surely fall...

blueray

I beg to disagree that "bahala na" creates one a lazy Filipino.

Like any other, I found our people to be hard working, persistent who keep on holding on to their dreams and know that only by "walk your talk" we get things/dreams done.

If you may look deeper into you (f u r a Fil youself), you may realized that the phrase "bahala na" could just be also some kind of unconscious expression popular on your mind that you just simply blurt out just to wisk off some kind of fear/frustration/excitement deep in you but the real truth is your consciousness remains strong to pursue, to persist to make things happen.

Hey man! You know better! that is if you are Filipino. Or just wanted to hit marks/points? We would never be all over the world working like horses if we just simply let things happen thru "bahala na".

Talking negatives couldbe constructive but these could be like a self-fulfilling prophecy and creates negative energy around us.

Let us observe closely...

Do these crabs below really intends to pull the crabs ahead of them down? Dont you think that the crabs down just simply wanted to climb up with the only way they could without any intention of pulling anyone down on their way? Just so happen maybe that the way is blocked by a slow crawling crab or just... KASI NAMAN HAHARANG HARANG SA DAAN, ALAM NA HIRAP NA NGANG HIRAP UMAKYAT E. Kidding but really... i could see some point here. I just wanted to change the old sentiment on climbing crabs which has long been associated with PINOYs!

Going back to the old stuff you mentioned (for the sake of argument), this very attitude is prevalent everywhere. Stop putting on the S _ _ T on our face Drac! Criessake!

in my opinion, filipinos are not so much of a good breed of people. yes majority of them are catholics and are conservative in a way. but generally, theyre morals are not high, theyre undisciplined and not very hardworking. :(
it's just like in that article written that was post here days ago written by a filipino professional.

"that's why they're hiring us"? really? well, some of us know that really..filipinos are better than the other 3rd world nationalities, number one reason is because filipinos are better english writers and speakers, and most of them who have college degrees are willing to go abroad for a cheap salary compared to if they hire the whites for your position. sorry for copying and pasting that without your generous consent.

@team azi, the topic was first of all "negative filipino values". i didnt post that first comment on a thread that says "filipino's are awesome!"..coz if so, then i'd be dumb to go in a thread where filipinos with great pride are making besos with eachother, giving eachother pat on the back for being great citizens of the world. just have me have freedom of thought and speech, yeah? my first post was not meant for any of you here in particular. chill, yeah? and yes bluray, it is a good topic. im half filipina..that doesnt automatically say i love being a filipino..and that im going to stand by it and defend it...i mean come on, reality bites..filipinos don't even want to be in the philippines because of obvious reasons that i guess you all here already know.

we go for cheaper compensation for what we really should be having yeah true, nothing's wrong with that? (actually it makes us heroic hahaha)

choosing DEGREE OVER FAMILY? a BIG no!

Not really a huge research. I should see where Senyorita came from who has a peek on the value of the Filipino people. Can not just simply fire on one person after a just a little peek.

Never cease to wonder how racist feels being one. Happy? Happier? Feeling of dominance? Abominable human nature... who cant accept the reality that some colored ordinary looking people like Filipinos can be fare better in a hundred one ways.

in any thread, when i give serious comments like that and like not just giving dracula kudos for posting a funny photo, i always speak from experience and im cautious to always put, "in my opinion". for example, i wouldnt go in a forum like this but instead of filipinos-- say, pakistans, and i wouldnt say there the exact thing i said here. simply because i wouldnt give any hard pov of them when its based from almost nothing of my knowledge or experience. thats just unfair and dumb. what i say here is based on what i have observed back in the philippines.
in the end, you fellows are filipinos who put pride in being filipinos. i have nothing against that. peace. and chill.

blueray

I hope you didn't get personal on generalizing the Filipino based on experience / observation in the Philippines because a rags to riches story in the Philippines may give you a kick on the ... neck for saying Filipinos are lazy after hearing how he made his first million/billion... and a Filipino saint may visit you from heaven and give you another pinch on the ear for generalizing the low moral values of the Philippines. My dead teacher may also give you a lesson that like your fingers, not all are the same in size and length.

you may also consider that after coming back from the Virgin Islands, i can also post in QL the general negative traits of her people. But i wouldnt do that. Let me borrow your quote: It is "that's just unfair and dumb".

it all boils down to the admitting and changinig yourself for the better.btw,im half filipino and half japanese so the trait of harakiri was also passed on to me.

oh, u didnt just do that!
that's all you can say? like, "oh back in the phillipines we have rich people, you know, who started from scratch, you know..so you see filipinos, in general are not lazy-- because you know they succeeded!" that's what you have to say for backing up your point (whatever it is). come on, even the richest families or people back there are not even full-blooded filipinos!
wake up..if filipinos, in general, arent really lazy or hard working, we would have made industries thus making more businesses and companies, hence not having the filipino people go abroad for work but have the work available in the country!? think about this, you preaching sarcastic nice lady..japan, a country with it's natural resources is nothing compared to the philippiines, so rich? why do you think? how about korea? no? take this for example, a country like swiss who has no cocoa, is world renowned for exporting well made chocolate bars? well yeah for some like qatar, the natural resources is so overwhelming that this helped them get to where they are and becoming to be now. in a country like philippines, this is not the case but if the people really want it..change can happen! it's not impossible, japan did it after WWII! they were so poor they wouldnt have left over food in their plates back then, like the filipinos are accustomed to do. it's not the resources, its not the luck..what do you think? don't quote one filipino's success, say manny pacquiao's...and go telling me filipino's are great citizens of the world. i did not say theyr the worst..i didnt say theyre bad breed, i didnt say "you, blueray being a filipino is lazy!"..now why on earth are you still in my hair? i have relatives in PI, me saying that...did i mean my aunt in manila is lazy? my goodness, can i explain more...you just don't seem to get it, do you?

i did say something about the values being low, based from the high graft and corruption in the country, as just being one of the many examples i can state. now also let me clarify that, when i say this..i dont mean it's only the filipinos who are like this! but the forum was about the filipinos' negative sides..yeah, traits. so there. you still don't get where im coming from, do you? you still think im JUST trashtalking the philippines coz you think i hardly know about it??

oh my..and what, your cursing me with this so-called saint that will pinch me whatever or your teacher rising from dead just so he could preach me whatever..well, since when were the dead and the gods on your side just coz youre such a patriot? girl, please....
the nerve of you to say that i was bad for generalizing when here you are judging me? have you heard of the word hypocrite? you dont have to answer that. just coz ure so patriotic don't make you any better than me.

ive done many travels in my life and have observed the people, the culture, the system in these countries..so i just have different variations of opinion on the philippines, however sweet or sourly sour it can get..is neither rude or unjust. if you had something u dont like about you, arent u compelled to think it out loud at one point at one time? thats just what i did. does that make me evil? widen your wisdom.

youre gonna have to live in virgin islands for about half your entire life like i did living in the philippines, by then..yeah..maybe you can post your opinions of the people there here in QL! till then, just be fair and smart not to talk about anything but the good sides of the filipinos, apparently that's all youre passionate about.

ive covered pretty much everything, don't be rebutting with something ive already tried to clarify or you writting lame sentences about saints or your dead (rip)teacher rising from the dead, i want to believe youre more matured than that.
oh and yeah..i was personal, and..peace be unto you too.

Just wondering why are you so upset Senyora....

Dont get too excited pouring out all your disappointment about the Filipino people. So much exclamation points. You are beginning to sound like a former Filipino who dropped his/her nationality for a better national identity like a US citizenship.

Why am i still on your hair is because i am just responding to your comments and you are still here. Guess you would also admit that this is such a good intercourse worth talking about and you got me to get this conversation going.

Hmmmm.. i hope i can really understnd your chilly spicy disenchantmentt about us Filipinos. Something must have really pissed you off while you are in the Philippines.

And you were saying you have an aunt in the Phils... and until now i "still dont know where you came from and that i thought i hadly know about it"... hmmm.. i guess i know now better. You quoted: "wake up..if filipinos, in general, arent really lazy or hard working, we would have made industries thus making more businesses and companies," WE? This makes sense now how you know the negatives of the Filipinos by heart. This could be another thread soon i guess soon.

But at least now you are NOT generalizing the Filipino people. Sensible. I have reviewed my ccomments but i didnt find me saying you are BAD for generalizing the Filipino peole but you could create am impression. I would never be better than you or anyone, that is not for me say.

Anyways, for whatever reasons of discenchatments you got or OUR RACE, i would remain standing tall for the Filipino people, may sound outdated and hypocrite for you but let it be. Maybe i would be the last man standing for the Filipino people or anybody there...? Smiles...

come on, youre asking me why im upset with your sarcasm (not you), let me quote you eh?, "and a Filipino saint may visit you from heaven and give you another pinch on the ear for generalizing the low moral values of the Philippines. My dead teacher may also give you a lesson that like your fingers, not all are the same in size and length."...for a minute there i felt like i was arguing with a highschooler. i was not being excited of my disappointments of the PI--i was simply stating my points of why i have come to say filipinos are undisciplined, blueray, i was putting exclamation points to stress to you my points in the hopes that you will get them. you didnt. sigh.

okay, this would have been an interesting stimulating discussion if i was talking with an intellectual, open-minded, sensible person. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN NOT A PROBLEM WITH ME TO BE STAND CORRECTED BY A PATRIOTIC FILIPINO if he or she gave hard facts and intellectual points to rebutt me, but youre just typing youself away with how this man got rich, how your dead teacher is mad, and how you as a filipino can stand and represent them well. i was not talking about you or the filipinos in doha. clearly youre just trying to provoke me with no substancy. yes, you got me..and im done with you. again, peace be to you too.

Why not dear senyora...how could you be so sensitive after all the comments you did you to the filipino people? But anyways... just an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. As in .... good words begets good words and everyone can always get a dose of their own medicine.

Learn the lesson well.

Goodbye

uh....no, blueray, i was not feeling so sensitive. i was just really upset with your uber lameness.
eye for an eye you say? get real, this is a forum!
with that i meant-- next time, if you have an opposing idea with another's post, don't just attack or negate his/her view with lameness or something like your teacher rising from the dead or curse that person that your saint will rise from somwehere and pinch him/her in the ear coz what he/she said didnt sound or read nice to you. really, it's annoying. it's like me having an arguement at the school backyard.

so long.

what do you mean vegas..the people? the place? culture is very diverse and yet generally the people are warm and respectful citizens. crimes are not high..quite peaceful.
like the beaches in PI, the beaches in VI are exceptional too. st croix is amazing!

Say thanks for that. You obviously don't know us at all. Let me explain why our culture says we do these things.

Never justify yourself to anybody.

Apologies to Drac.

I will hoist that up the flag pole and see who salutes it!!
