American culture transcends barriers. Their films are seen is small towns far away, how we eat is influenced by their fast food. Their brands, the most wanted. Their lifestyle attracts us, but what we know about them? How are the Americans?
American society is composed of a wide variety of ethnic groups and different cultures. One of the national watchword is “E Pluribus Unum” which means “of many, one”, referring to the integration of their states in a single territory, but as well for the diversity of its population.
The character and manners vary from the east coast to the west and north to south, but there are some common aspects in their character.
Since they are kids, they are individualistic, independent and with their own purposes and dreams. For the America society is really important to reach the personal success and at the same time they are really competitive that’s why many of them play instruments or sports since really young.
They usually realize debates in the school so they grow up being direct, honest and clearly and with no problems of saying what they think in public.
They tend to be punctual and they are very strict about it because they give a vital importance to time and its economization. They firmly believe that “time is money“. So remind it 😉
They are addicted to newness which is becoming a global tendency all over the world as well. Most of its output is designed to be short-lived and quickly be discarded because they associate the change with the progress. Who doesn’t like new clothes, technology and staff?
No matter the color of your skin, your sex or language … after years of slavery and racism time ago, nowadays the equality between the different ethnic groups is a reality.
So now that we know a little more about their character, why don’t we check if it is true in Seattle this Sunday?
