    The attempt isn't to say "everyone is this type" but that the country values some preferences over others. For example in the US Extraversion is way more valued
    • We grade on class participation
    • We worry about our "shy" children
    • There was just a study in Harvard Management Review expressing surprise that Introverts can be good leaders. Like thinking before acting is a bad thing...
    • In most settings those who speak up fastest are considered brighter or smarter. Compare that to many First Nations where those who listen to everyone else, then synthesize and add wisdom, are considered the great leaders


    So it's looking systemically to see what is valued, not stereotyping behaviors. that's a different thing...

    Actually most think we're Extraverted Thinking--we do not step into the shoes of others to consider the impact of our decisions on them...

    Uh. It was a joke. I dislike explaining them...

    USA started from being some small religious groups in europe (this is the bullying part) and sailed across the ocean (and this is the run-away-as-a-teenager part) and is now a country that starts a war every other decade, licks his wounds until they get new president and then go again. (That was the exploding part)

    Yeah, boo hoo. It must have really sucked for Europe when we saved its butt and forgave every debt.

    Anyway, I want to expand on the ran away from home analogy. K, so we got bullied, ran away from home...that part's good. But substitute "suppressed all that shit" with "got rich and famous while distant relatives stayed unemployed and bitter".
    I don't wanna!

    How about we compromise: "got rich and famous, yet feels empty inside and can't help but to feel for the senile relatives back home"? Plus some rage.

    Actually pretty accurate. Still think we're more T--their feelings get hurt too...

    Is it rage or total obliviousness to others...

    You might be on to something. Maybe America is so total extrovert that he doesn't think about that much before doing? It must be the extrovert among the countries...
