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 ?
