    I don't necessarily believe being Germanic makes you have decent values for no reason. I would say that the majority of Germanic people live in a way to avoid bothering or harming others (at least the middle class) but there will always be a criminal element in every culture. From the Vikings to the Raubritter, to modern day welfare cheats and cutpurses (who have always existed), these people exist in every Germanic society. There are no noble savages in my opinion, crime is a part of the human condition.

    However, I do tend to associate Protestant values with the various Germanic societies, despite the fact that Christianity isn't Germanic, it has a foreign genesis, and also the fact that not every Germanic country is protestant (afaik the Nothern European Germanic countries, such as England, and the nordic countries, tend to be protestant whereas the others have a sort of mixture with Roman Catholics and Protestants. Maybe someone can correct me on that? I'm not 100%). THOUGH, the various protestant faiths were sort of initiated by Germanics. But that is neither here nor there.

    Anyway, I can only give a vague image of how I perceive things, and that is from a modern middle class Eastern Canadian Anglophone background. Germanics tend to be well off, often working towards a goal, and also often overly concerned with how others perceive them / offending others. The North American Germanic tends to shy away from socialist ideas for the most part, to the point where it's a bad word. But, I think we're a decent bunch overall

    Oh, and there is no Germanic identity here. Few people think of it as a group they belong to, so it's somewhat hard to generalise for eeeeveryone.

    Random thoughts about things that go through my mind when the term Germanic is used:
    Stubborness. Determination. Mathematical ability. Order. Routine. A Will that is impossible to break. Light hair, light eyes, strong build, square jaw, prominent brows, raw strength and power, sauerkraut, beer.

    People that can trace their ancestry to Scandinavia, and are at least partially Nordic.

    This pretty much describes me exactly.

    The only other 2 characteristics I would add are:

    1. Strong work ethic.
    2. Stubborn.

    I have worked with native Germans and several times I have been "accused" of being more German than they were.

    I thanked them for the great compliment.
