I dont like such questions, because it's easy to have many hate, racism or simply stereotype answers.
Also, such question can just call subjective answers.
Chinese peoples: usually friendly, curious, generous,helpful. Shy. For the less good points, they often lack of global point of view, and tend to repeat repat blindly some old song (propaganda or what the potent says), modern chinese tend to be a little like american, arrogant, and are sure they are the center of the world...

1. Please write down 3 adjective words which your friends often describe you with?
2. Please write down 3 adjective words which your mom often describe you with?
such as: lazy..
In general: they're normal people. In the average, they're rather poor and not so well educated (because of that very poverty). But especially the young generation is catching up very fast with international levels.
I think we can't help but stereotype. Even the Chinese do this among themselves, as do Americans and most other people, I imagine.
Southerners are ______________.
Northerners are ______________.
The poor are ________________.
The rich are _________________.
Minorities are _______________.
... etc, etc. This is the process called 'Othering' which is paradoxically necessary to understand the minds of those outside of our own communities AS WELL AS the cause of the prejudices we may harbor against these people. In the end, it's much like a balancing act -- Yin-Yang in the Taoist tradition -- there's always a little prejudice in our understanding and a little understanding in our prejudices. We have to search for a balance that allows us communicate with each other without losing our own sense of identity.

Are Chinese rich?
as they pay by cash.
In foreigner eyes, Chinese "rich" is not only reflected in enterprise investment, Chinese tourists go up and generous. Paris, the famous department stores average daily announced reception Chinese tourists ten thousand person-time, has special Chinese customer service department. While in champs elysees there are more and more international famous brand shop also began to hire speaks Chinese clerk. However, the real also makes the average European very perplexed. Because in their reading the news report, China's per capita GNP even just European' oddment, almost everyone is very strange, why news coverage and they saw the facts have such a large discrepancy?

At foreigners eye for Chinese are very complex
General foreigners on Chinese economic views of life apart from China commodity outside, mainly by the media influence. Along with China's economic increasing influence, now foreign media almost daily published a lot about China's economic reports. Some americans also know more from the media about a Chinese, but what impress them more often than that is not China 's some poverty places, but als is about how some people become rich story, because these orin story is very similar with "American dream", americans are more willing to see their own shadows frm the stories. Some American media also keen to hype u.s.-china trade friction, but often and lack of comprehensive analysis. A typical example is that the American media often only reports of China's foreign exchange reserves exceed trillions, rarely report China use quite part of foreign exchange bought us bonds, support the development of the American economy. This makes a lot of American produced an illusion, convinced that China and the United States trade is unfair, America suffered loss.
Americans see China's economy will certainly more from their own interests consideration, interest is different, perceptions of China is not the same. For instance Idaho is the very remote a small state, regardless of officials or the people in China are goodwill. Because of the state, along with China linked mainly two things: one is Chinese laborers in the 19th century, the construction of north American railway in the state developed. Another thing is entered into China, McDonald's fries potatoes came from the state. In some American states, manufacturing relatively developed in Chinese economy evaluation is more complex, "China threat" theory mainly from here. And more americans tend to go in to China's huge market with full expectations, they wish chinese to buy more products they produced , rather than more exporting to US.
