    American talk like waterfalls because they have different child rearing practices.

    American children are encouraged to talk and entertain their parents while the parents listen. So talking and entertaining is the childlike role while listening is the dominant or parental role.

    In other words Americans show deference by talking and entertaining, and dominance by listening.

    Here it is completely reversed. We show deference by listening and dominance by talking and entertaining.

    So when Americans wish to show deference to us they talk and entertain. Unfortunately we interpret this not as deference but dominance. So we routinely refer to Americans as, "loud mouthed Yanks".

    And so we constantly misunderstand one another.

    And the reason we misunderstand each other is that we have different child rearing practices which lead to different ways of expressing deference and dominance.

    I think I've got a very non-American personality because everybody thinks INs are the weirdest things ever (We are) and don't actually exist (We do). I try to downplay the fact that I'm American because it has a negative association with big, loud d***heads.

    And I don't know about you, but I like English AND Chinese Tea. I love to drink it. Unfortunately that still doesn't make me any less American.

    (And Entropie is German, which probably has an IXTJ influence on his personality.)

    Will the mute Americans in the house please stand up?

    Valuable Money... don't you ever feel like being one of those deaf mutes? Then you'd never have to talk to anybody.
