Ein Eipo-Junge aus West-Neuguinea verspeist genüsslich ein großes Stück Schokolade aus den Früchten des Johannisbeerbaums. Seine jüngere Schwester möchte auch ein Stück davon haben. Sie quengelt, während er sich hartnäckig weigert, ihr etwas abzugeben. Sie fängt an zu weinen, ihr Bruder brüllt.
Aufgrund des Lärms kommt die Mutter herbeigeeilt. Sie erkennt die Geschwisterdynamik und die Lernchance. Schweigend nimmt sie dem Jungen das Stück Schokolade aus der Hand und dem Mund und bricht es in zwei Hälften.
Die Eipo-Mutter gibt ihrem Sohn die beiden Stücke Schokolade zurück, ohne ihn weiter zu instruieren. Der Junge hat nun zwei Teile in je einer Hand und steht vor der Wahl, was er mit beiden Leckerstücken in beiden Händen machen wird. Eine Hand füttert ihn, die andere kann (ab)geben.
Nach der mütterlichen Intervention und angesichts der neuen Gegebenheit entscheidet der Junge, seiner Schwester freiwillig ein Stück Schokolade zu geben. Sie nimmt und isst davon. Ihre Tränen sind schnell getrocknet.

Ein westlicher Anthropologe prüfte die Kinder eines afrikanischen Stammes mit einem neuen Spiel. Er stellte einen Korb voller Obst und Süßigkeiten unter einen Baum und schlug den Kindern einen Wettlauf vor, "Wer zuerst dort ist, gewinnt alle Leckereien im Korb." Kaum hatte er ihnen das Startsignal gegeben, fassten sich alle Kinder gegenseitig an den Händen. Dann rannten sie gemeinsam zum Baum, um dort die Belohnung miteinander zu verspeisen.
Der verdutzte Wissenschaftler fragte die Kinder: "Weshalb seid ihr zusammen losgelaufen, wo doch jeder die Chance hatte, die Süßigkeiten für sich allein zu gewinnen?"
Ein Mädchen antwortete ihm gelassen: "Ubuntu. Wie kann einer von uns froh sein, wenn alle anderen traurig sind?"

The term Ubuntu stems from Bantu, Zulu and Xhosa cultures. It expresses the African philosophy of humaneness. Translated it means "I am what I am because of who we all are."
A Western anthropologist proposed a game to the children in the African Xhosa tribe. He put a basket full of fruit and goodies near a tree and told the young folks that whoever got there first would win the basket. As soon as he finished commanding: "Ready, steady, go!," the children all took each others' hands and ran together. Arrived at the tree they sat down together enjoying their treats.
When the dumbfounded scientist asked them why they had run like they did as one could have had all the sweets for himself a little girl replied:

An Eipo boy from Western New Guinea eats a large piece of carob candy with relish. His younger sister also wants a piece of it. She whines while he stubbornly refuses to share a piece with her. She begins to cry, her brother screams.
Alarmed by the noise, the mother hurries along. Recognizing the sibling dynamics as well as the learning opportunity, she silently takes the piece of chocolate from the boy's hand and mouth and breaks it in two halves.
The Eipo mother returns the two pieces of chocolate to her son without instructing him any further. The boy now has two pieces in one hand each and is faced with the choice of what to do with both pieces of candy in both hands. One hand is feeding him, the other can give.
After the motherly intervention and in view of the new situation, the boy decides to voluntarily give his sister a piece of chocolate. She takes it and eats it. Her tears dry quickly.

At the beginning of the school year, the principal called three teachers into his office to inform them:
As a result of your teaching excellence over the last three or four years, we have come to the conclusion that you are the best teachers in this school. And as a special reward to you, we have identified three classes each with 30 of the brightest students in this school — the students with the highest IQs. And we're going to assign them to you to teach for the entire year.
We don't want to be accused of discrimination, so it's very important that you do not tell these children in any way that you know that they've been selected for a screened class. And second of all, we're not going to tell their parents, because we don't want to cause any difficulties there. I expect you to teach exactly the same way you normally do and use exactly the same curriculum, and I expect you to get very good results with these students.
At the end of the school year, these students led not only the school, but the entire school district in academic accomplishment.
Calling the three teachers into his office, the principal said:
Well, you've had a very good year.
Yes we have [...] it was so easy, replied the teachers. These children were so easy to teach. They were so eager to learn; it was such a pleasure to teach them.
Well, maybe I'd better tell you the truth, said the school principal.
This has been an experiment, and those 90 children were chosen out of the school population at random. When I assigned them to your class at the beginning of the year, I had no idea what their IQs were at all.
That's incredible! exclaimed the teachers.
But how could it be that they scored so high? They did so well. They got such good grades. Ah hah! Yes! It must be because we are such excellent teachers.
To which the principal said,
And I think I should also tell you the other side of the experiment. At the beginning of the school year, we put all the teachers' names in a hat, and yours were the first three names that were drawn.
The principal was Robert Rosenthal, the US American professor of psychology at the University of California, Riverside. He has studied the effect of teachers' expectations on students (known as the so called Pygmalion Effect) and took a special interest in the role of the self-fulfilling prophecy (coined by sociologist Robert K. Merton) in everyday life and in laboratory situations.
