The Asian-American must be assertive, questioning, and active in order to develop in his present environment. The Asian-American also faces conflicts. Since he is attempting to find an identity with other Asian-Americans, the group is extremely important to him.

Thus he may feel quite intolerant of the Traditionalist and particularly of the Marginal Man who wants to assimilate. Since he feels that much of the problems of minority groups are due to the host society, he must somehow reconcile this belief with the observations that there are ‘‘uncle toms’’ in his own racial group.
