    I would have to say the English. However, one thing that definitely differs between the English and Anglo-Americans is how loud some of them are.

    Yes, that does seem odd now that I read it again - an American saying the English are too boisterous at times instead of the other way around. The English are cracking jokes and yapping a mile a minute. Which is definitely fun if you are in that sort of mood, but Anglo-Americans seem to be slower paced.

    In fact, when I went to Saxony I think I felt a bit of kinship to those people - the Saxons. They seemed very down-to-earth, quiet, clean, and hard-working. Almost somber.

    I figure there must be English who are less noisy and more down-to-earth. Something to keep in mind is that I am only comparing my actual real life experiences with English people, and most of those tended to be drunk and in their early 20's...I'm certain that most English aren't like that.

    So my choice would still be the English.

    Hmm...after remembering how my brother and I acted at the last party we attended together I might have to rethink this. Loud and boisterous would be a massive understatement for that one.

    Perhaps English + Alcohol + Girls = Incredibly loud and out of control antics.

    Like most everyone has said, English, because it is my native language. I also feel a kinship in heritage with people of Norwegian and German descent, being that most people in North Dakota are one or the other, and because I'm more Norwegian and German than anyhting else.

    The English of course... On the other hand, I met an Austrian professor who was jolly, fat, red-faced and was well versed in all manner of subjects. He wrote over 30 books, spoke 5 languages, and was all around a very impressive fellow.

    I've heard the Prussians have a reputation of being very orderly, clean, and well-dressed. I feel an affinity for bespectacled professors who are dour and humourless; i.e. the stereotype of the Germans pre-WWI.

    With the Germans as I by blood am German.While I lived in Germany I found the southern Germans to be more like my family in the US. My family is very hot tempered but loves to laugh and enjoy life and not be so serious all the time, my family is very sarcastic as well.I know all my family comes from Parts of Bavaria, Baden Württemberg, Hessen.My father and his famly roll their R's when they speak is this a Schwabe dialect? My professor is from Austria and told me there are parts in Austria, Switzerland and Schwabia that do this?My mother side doesnt do this with their R's.
    I feel more a conection with the southern Germans to some extent. But I feel a Strong connection towards everyone while I was in Germany something I only felt while amongst my family before, so in my heart while in Germany I realized I was amongst family.Ich glaube mit meine familie, wir tragen das Vaterland in unserem Herzen..

    Swiss Germans

    Weren't the Swiss (Swiss Germans) always the first to forgive Germany's transgressions? Of course these transgressions were never against the Swiss themselves, yet I still greatly admire them for not turning their backs on their brothers and sisters from Germany.

    (I must admit that my knowledge in this area may be limited and much of my reasoning has to do with the Swiss FA being the first to lobby for Germany's return to FIFA after WWI and WWII and for them agreeing to be the first nation to play football against Germany after each of those wars.)

    And on a related subject, what is the protocol for the description of ethnics living in any particular country? We say Swiss Germans and Transylvanian Saxons, which have the homelands coming before the ethnicities, but I've also heard the term German-Hungarians, meaning ethnic Germans who live in Hungary. Is that a misnomer, or is there no binding rule?

    I get along best with ex-Prussian germans and Norwegians. The ones I know aren't racist (out loud) but thats pretty common these days.

    I'm also friends with some portugese and basque people and they seem to be ok to go drink with.

    I'd probably say the English, I speak english and most of my heritage is from England. I've never really met any English people, although I might have and just forgotten. I used to take german and the teacher was from Germany, she was very nice theres also a few german towns around where I live.

    The english and specifically Normans. It all started in 7th grade, I had to give a report on some one who changed history and on the list was some guy called William the Conqueror and he sounded interesting. So I ended up learning quite a bit about the Normans. Then in High School I needed to give a report on the battle of Hastings and talking with my father found out most of his side is descended from the Normans.
