Based on ethnographic study, the following mental characteristics of Aboriginal Australians have been discovered:
(AB1)"By trial and error" method is the dominant way of dealing with problems. Copying someone else's approach to problems (even successful) is not the first choice.
(AB2) There is no competition between people, no need to be as good as someone else in something. It's very seldom that someone wants to rule or dominate over others.
(AB3) The focus is on the present time, thinking about the future does not happen often.
(AB4) The thinking is mostly pictorial, non-verbal.
