Thread Name: Do Americans know?
Subject: RE: Do Americans know?
I am an American and I have known hundreds of Europeans, and none of them have those attitudes about me. We have sung, walked, driven and dined and in some cases slept together and I think I would have known it. So...does this make me a white crow?

If it is unintelligent to resort to crass categorizations about human beings, and especially negative categorizations, than I am sure this particular mental weakness is shared as much by Americans en masseas by Europeans.

Many people living here in the United States eat too much. I seem to have the impression that the same is true of those who take their vacations on the Black Sea. We have parochial thinkers in our country. I think I have met as many (or at least as parochial) in Morocco and England and Denmark.

I think intelligence is a highly individual variable. What do you think?
