    I agree with all of the things stated here. I, though I take things quite serriously, am almost always happy. Perhaps this is not a Germanic trait but what can we do when life throws a lil' difficulty in our path other than smile and lean into it?

    I believe there was a thread of similar type elsewhere, and I'll post the same thing I did there. It wasn't written by a Germanic nor about them, but it applies more than anything else I've ever read.

    "This original Roman spirit was based on a human type characterized by a group of typical dispositions. Among them we should include self-control, an enlightened boldness, a concise speech and determined and coherent conduct, and a cold dominating attitude, exempt from personalism and vanity. To the Roman style belong virtus, in the sense not of moralism, but of virile spirit and courage; fortitudo and constantia, namely spiritual strength; sapientia, in the sense of thoughtfulness and awareness; disciplina, understood as love for a self-given law and form; fides, in the specifically Roman sense of loyalty and faithfulness; and dignitas, which in the ancient patrician aristocracy became gravitas and solemnitas, a studied and moderate seriousness. The same style is characterized by deliberate actions, without grand gestures; a realism that is not materialism, but rather love for the essential; the ideal of clarity, which eventually turned into rationalism in only some Latin peoples; an inner equilibrium and a healthy suspicion for every confused form of mysticism; a love for boundaries; the readiness to unite, as free human beings and without losing one's identity, in view of a higher goal or for an idea. We may also add religio and pietas, which do not mean "religiosity" in the Christian sense of the word, but instead signify for a Roman an attitude of respectful and dignified veneration for the gods and, at the same time, of trust and re-connection with the supernatural, which was experienced as omnipresent and effective in terms of individual, collective, and historical forces. Obviously, I am far from suggesting that every Roman man and woman embodied these traits; however, they represented the "dominant factor" and were embodied in the ideal that everybody perceived to be specifically Roman."

    I think the Noble Nine Virtues are a good description of Germanic values:

    Hospitality
    Also known as courtesy, hospitality is to be generous, kind, and loyal to those who enter your house or with whom you have dealings.

    Courage
    Courage is a mental state which impels an individual to accomplish some endeavor, regardless of fear and/or danger.

    Truth
    An acknowledgement, acceptance and promotion of what is.

    Loyalty
    Loyalty is the unwaivering commitment to the well being of those who are deemed worthy of such a commitment.

    Honor
    Honor is the expression of self esteem by an individual envolving the keeping of promises, the performance of duites, and the respect of other peoples value and possessions.

    Self Reliance
    Self Reliance is the ablility and desire to provide for ones self.

    Hardwork
    Also known as Industriousness, Hardwork is the willingness to provide for ones self, and ones family, by labor and effort.

    Perserverance
    Perserverance is the willingness to accomplish some goal or endeavor regardless of obstacles or failures.

    Discipline
    Discipline is the self motivaton by an individual used to accomplish goals.

    Indeed, but not just for animals. I believe Germanics are among the most environmentalist people. Where else do we see so many green parties and organizations as in Germanic countries? Where else do people take so many green initiatives and show so much interest in our environment?

    Examples:

    Icelandic Environmentalist Receives Seacology Prize
    World Geology Congress in Oslo
    Is This the Perfect English Village?

    Altruism, exaggerated altruism and exaggerated hospitality. Only the Germanic man worries about the welfare of the African Negro and goes there to "make Africa a better place." The Germanic man supports "affirmative action" in his countries, favouring the foreigners. Today it has taken the form of xenophilia. Germanics must start caring about themselves and their countries if we want to get anywhere.

    Very true, the same communitarian traits that helped our ancestors survive glacial times have become a weakness in modern times. Some sort of ideology is going to have to be adopted to combat this, perhaps imitated in some form from those used by other cultures which have been successful in preserving themselves.

    That reminds me of a paper written by MacDonald: "Can the Jewish Model Help the West Survive?"


    Extracts:

    [...]

    Taking seriously the idea of Judaism as a model for ethnic activism is a tall order indeed. What would we have to do that we are not doing now?

    First, we would have to develop a strong sense of ourselves as a people with interests—interests that often conflict with the interests of others. The fact is, of course, that any mention of the ethnic interests of European-Americans or even Europeans in Europe or anywhere else is certain to be greeted with scorn and accusations of “racism” and moral depravity. These accusations are effective because if there is one area where the intellectual left has won a complete and decisive victory, it is in pathologizing the ethnic interests of the European majority of the United States. By “pathologizing” I mean not only that people have been taught to believe with utter certainty that there is no biological reality to race or ethnicity, but that the slightest assertion of ethnic self-interest by the European majority of the United States is the sign of a grave moral defect. Indeed, it is a moral defect so grave that it is really more a matter of psychiatric concern than anything else.

    Of course, this stance requires a great deal of hypocrisy, because assertions of ethnic interests by Europeans are stigmatized at the same time that assertions of ethnic interest by other groups are utterly commonplace and respectable. As Virginia Abernethy recently wrote:

    "The goals of the multicultural game are ethnic separatism, ethnic privilege, and ethnic power. I began to realize not too long ago that I have to play the multicultural game, at least defensively, or I and my family and kin will lose out. It is what every ethnic group except, in the main, European-Americans, does these days."

    Indeed, Mexican activists loudly advertise their goal of reconquering the Southwestern United States via immigration from Mexico—an event that would be rather obviously in the ethnic interests of Mexicans but undoubtedly would compromise the interests of European-Americans. Jewish organizations, which were in the forefront leading the intellectual and political battles to pathologize the ethnic interests of European Americans, have also been deeply involved in organizing coalitions of minority ethnic groups to assert their political interests in Congress and in the workplace. The elaborate Jewish effort on behalf of their ethnic brethren in Israel is legendary and can only be described as awesome in its effectiveness.

    So the very first thing that any ethnic group must do is to assert its ethnic interests openly and honestly. Until recently, ethnic interests were understood intuitively by everyone, but not formally analyzed. And of course there has been a major effort by the intellectual left to convince everyone that their commonsense perceptions of race and ethnicity are an illusion. As Frank Salter, Henry Harpending, and William Hamilton have shown, people have an interest in their ethnic group in exactly the same way that parents have a genetic interest in raising their children.3 When world populations are sampled, genetic differences between groups are significant—on average, they are about the same as the kinship between a grandparent and a grandchild. In other words, on average, people are as closely related to other members of their ethnic group versus the rest of the world as they are related to their grandchildren versus the rest of their ethnic group.

    What this means is that it is very rational to make extreme sacrifices for our ethnic group. And I would like to underline that. Because of the large number of ethnic brethren, counted in the hundreds of millions, we are actually far better off from an evolutionary point of view if we have a positive influence on the future of our ethnic group than when we successfully rear our own children. Extreme self-sacrifice is entirely warranted and rational if it has a positive effect on our ethnic survival. I think we should all keep this in mind when planning our future life course.

    The best way to defend ethnic interests is to defend a territory against immigration from other ethnic groups. The big story of immigration since World War II is of course that wealthy Western societies with economic opportunities and a high level of public goods, such as medical care and education, are magnets for immigration from around the world. We should never forget and should be immensely proud of the fact that Western societies act as magnets precisely because of the spectacular success of the peoples of European descent in creating the science and technology that is the basis for the incredible explosion of wealth and the breakthroughs in medicine and public health. And it goes without saying that we should also be immensely proud of the extraordinary flowering of European high culture that has repeatedly produced geniuses like Bach, Beethoven, Wagner, and Shakespeare. Jewish pride in their own culture is of course a very important part of the Jewish tradition, and it certainly bears emulation. Sadly, a primary effect of the culture of critique has been to produce immense guilt among so many Europeans about their own culture, their own history, and their own people.

    [...]
    Any thoughts?

    Germanic qualities

    - A strict separation between private life/pleasure and business life. This "casual Fridays" and casual atmosphere in the office stuff is not Germanic at all. The workplace is for working, not fun and relaxation. :p

    - Germanics require a larger radius of personal space than others.

    - Being honest & direct and not exaggerating or using a lot of hype or emotionally loaded words.

    I think Germanics have the most in common socially with the Japanese and the least in common with Semitics.

    What to You is Definitely Germanic? / Universal Germanic Qualities

    What to you is definitely Germanic?

    For me it has to be the mind set. Germanics want to do things correctly and don't generally break rules for no good reason.

    A cultural peak that is true civilisation but still raw underneath.

    I think most Germanics reject the victim mentality and are more head strong than most in terms of making their own way. For instance, my grandmother was a widow at age 34 with 4 young kids and a house to pay off. She worked 2 minimum wage jobs (was a housewife prior to her husbands death), never considered to remarry, and never sought out any kind of welfare.

    These days the world has a huge martyrdom mentality and seek the tears and help from others; always wanting to sue people for trivial stuff and make it the easy way. I think our people are too proud to do that.
