    Default Countries/Ethnicities and Personality

    I was talking with my brother last night, who I have tried unsuccessfully for years to interest in MBTI types and theories. I mentioned something my dad was known for and he said that it was my Dad's "nature" to do that. I asked him what he meant by "nature" and he started referencing the countries my dad is associated with. ( Dad was half Norwegian and half Swedish. ) I argued that there were different MBTI types for each country, versus personality traits associated with countries. He said "I don't know anything about this MBTI stuff, but you're telling me that different nationalities don't have notable personality traits ? How many German comedians do you know of ? But...the trains run on time. But you will think of humor and other traits when you think of Ireland, for example." I said that these are just stereotypes, but he insisted these were formed for a reason etc.

    Do you associate any personality traits with countries ?
    "The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them that they are being attacked and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."
    Reichsfuhrer Herman Goering at the Nuremburg trials.

    Rude!
    Ok. When I think of the Scots, I think of drinking (I know I know), bonhomie, frugality, a fighting spirit and a certain devil-may-care approach to life. I don't know what that sounds like, but it doesn't conjure up INTP to me.
