    A lot has already been mentioned IMO... something else I've noticed regarding the respect of privacy, there is this lack of love for gossip about others. Minding one's own business, staying in one's own yard. The love and respect for animals also seems to prevail among Germanics.

    That too. Oh yes, very important. Needless to say how frustrating is the southern opposite.

    These are indeed the main qualities. The one i like the most is the "fair play/level playing field", Leofric knows what i'm talking about.
    I just wish that this thread does not turn into a self-gratification act like i've seen in the past.

    How about a love/respect for nature? The Roman historians mention a close connection which Germanics had for the forest and for a kind of nature worship. It seems that our President Theodore Roosevelt enacted the first of our national parks, Yellowstone. Afterward, this idea caught on around the world under various names. Also, Germanic people have been on the front lines in enviornmental movements.

    Minnesota, being full of Germanics, has a reputation for being less outgoing than other states are. People move here from out of state and complain that its difficult to get to know their neighbors.

    re

    Wow so many of the traits mentioned here are ones that I can recognize in myself. I defintely agree respect for nature and love of animals is a Germanic trait. I feel a deep sense of connection with the natural world. And many other germanics I know agree that they have this connection as well.

    Most don't start conversing without a proper greeting. Seems common to me, agree?
