So Square will learn things through intuition. Hyper-focused on the things not said. How “accomplishments” garner Saint adoration. The consequences of being perceived like or associated with Sheep. Square will quickly learn to focus on accomplishments because it feels good to be showered with praise and bad to be punished or ignored.
This is a such a powerful metaphor to describe how AAPIs are positioned to be the "model minority." I've never heard anyone describe it this way before and it makes SO MUCH SENSE. Thank you. It's time we reject the false Saint v. Sheep dichotomy.
