    Universal Germanic Qualities

    What do you think are some of the qualities that all Germanic people worldwide have, regardless of where they grew up or other influences. In other words, besides physical appearance, how could one spot a Germanic person in a foreign land?

    I would say that in each Germanic individual there is a certain grave and heavy expression, which can be felt and saw in eyes, overall look, voice or facial mimics. It is not something purely pessimist, but rather a non-hilarious state of mind, a tendency to refuse to look at things lightly.

    Very few Germanic individuals are unstoppable speaking-machine who get on the nerves or their surroundings by the foolishness or irrelevance of their opinions and thoughts. Plus, I think the longing for solitude and contemplation is quite widely spread among Germanics.

    Certainly a laconic nature is quite noticable amongst the old timers around here as well as strong notion of having personal elbow room. I've always attributed this taciturn quality as being hold-overs from older, colonial times around here...but perhaps it's a Germaniuniversal.

    That's hard to say. It might be the aura or silent expression.
    I can feel comfortable within a group of germanic strangers, but i feel easily non-comfortable if they're not germanic, even if they would racially fit into some germanic country, their expression and aura still seems to be different.

    Besides taht i could only mention germanic qualities which are not universal. Such as Germans being totally accurate in every matter.

    I agree substantially. Probably, imo, this temperamental attitude is some kind of deep cultural trait acquired after several thousand years in a particual environment. Climate is very important factor. Germanic civilisation was born and developed, in a north-European envronment : very cold climate, desolated and depopulated lands etc. etc. Elements who don't make easy to socialize (or to be particularly hilarious).........on the opposite, the "caotic socialization" culture is typical (native) of mediterranean environment. Hot and favourable climate, densely populated centres etc. etc.

    Besides all of the wise things already said, I can only add a word: sagacity.

    I do not think, however, that all Germanics possess this equally; but do - taken as a group - exemplify sagacity to the point that at the extreme end of the continuum within the group, there appears clairvoyance.

    I see this with no other ethnicity.
    "...The moral man is a lower species than the immoral, a weaker species; indeed - he is a type in regard to morality, but not a type in himself; a copy...the measure of his value lies outside him. ... I assess the power of a will by how much resistance, pain, torture it endures and knows how to turn to its advantage; I do not account the evil and painful character of existence a reproach to it, but hope rather that it will one day be more evil and painful than hitherto..." (Nietzsche)

    But both the Celts and the Slavs also more recently dwelled in a cold climate in northern europe, so how does one differentiate between them and Germanics, other than effects of the climate?

    I've noticed in my research that ancient Celtic, Slavic and Germanic territories often overlapped, or were completely different locations from where they are today. For example, Germanic tribes living in what is modern day Poland, and Slavs or Celts living in parts of what is modern day Germany. So while climate can explain the differences between Germanics and Mediteraneans, it doesn't seem equally applicable to the differences between Germanics and Slavics and Celtics.

    Work ethic, honesty, courtesy, efficiency, consistency, order and discipline.

    And I am emphasizing on them, because I have been suffering from the striking absence of any of those around me, throughout my whole life.
