    this forces me to ask the questions here:

    1. what ancenstry do you have?

    Polish, Lithuanian, and Russian Jews, but I was born in the United States. 3rd generation or something.

    2. do you consider yourself a member of a subgenre of race (i.e., for white gaulic or slavic etc., for black nigerian, aborigin, etc.)

    Uhh, Ashkenazim? Well, I'm considered white by the school's standardized tests, so I guess so.

    3. do you think cultures of your ancestry have had any (even minor) effect on your upbringing?

    Uhm. Perhaps. The whole religious schism has caused me to view a lot of the religions and beliefs of people around me at a distance. Also, I was brought up Reform, so I've questioned a lot of religious stuff, too.

    Also, if there's one cultural thing that's affected me the most, it's the emphasis on education. I remember a while back I was pretty shocked to hear that some acquaintances wouldn't be going to college or wouldn't earn more than an associate's degree because apparently 'they didn't have the money.' Their parents wouldn't help them fund their education at all, and they decided that buying a car with their work money was a much more pressing matter. In my family, this would not be an option. Even with my family's financial state as it is, I'm definitely, definitely at least getting a 4 year degree at a respectable university. *shrug*




    I don't understand this 'farther east you go, the more intuitive people get'. I mean... the world is round. If you keep going east, eventually you end up west again. Where is this arbitrary divide?

    Your thread is quasi-nazi bullshit, which may or may not be fine - but don't expect the "data" on a plate.

    Heaven forbid you might have to "defend" your "point".

    Have a nice life.

    That's a wrong theory, in my opinion, from the sample of Asians that I know (and, paradoxically, I mostly know asians that are either doing their masters or phd, thus the likelihood of them being intuitive is higher than the likelihood of a random sample), which is around a hundred. Anyway, as far as providing data for your survey goes:

    1. what ancenstry do you have?

    Mostly mediterranean (from my father's side), and Alpine (from my mother's side). It's a mix quite typical of north-eastern Italy, actually. My maternal grandmother was jew, but she didn't bring the religion on when she married my maternal granddad.

    2. do you consider yourself a member of a subgenre of race (i.e., for white gaulic or slavic etc., for black nigerian, aborigin, etc.)

    I'd say that if I compare myself with the average european I would be of mediterranean subgenre, somatically-wise, although not as much as southern italians and greeks. Still, I'm more similar to them than to French or German people. I'm brownish in winter, and get quite dark during the summer; average build and height, dark hair and green/brown eyes.

    3. do you think cultures of your ancestry have had any (even minor) effect on your upbringing?

    No, not really. My mother, even if clearly of alpine origin in terms of body type and appearance, has typical northern italian values. My father has typical central italian values (which differ from both those of the south, and those of the north). I'd say that my upbring was more affected by the culture of reference of my parents, rather than my ancestry.

    I could almost imagine saying that the Western hemisphere is more SP and the eastern more SJ as a cultural thing, but this... huh. *scratches head*

    Yes, this could be somewhat more reasonable, but the divide would still be arbitrary, since it could also be said that the northern western is more SJ than southern western; whereas the souther-northern personality divide would be reversed in, say, China.
