    [SOLVED] nd Norway Seen by Each Other

    Hooray for stereotypes!

    Sweden, Denmark and Norway as we see each other and ourselves.

    Sweden is seen as the most advanced country in terms of technology. In Norway they’re seen as snobs and arrogant, and in Denmark they’re seen as people who are very concerned with order, but loose all self-control when they come to Denmark to drink the cheep beer. For some reason Swedes see themselves as cleaner than the other two.

    Denmark is seen, both by themselves and the others, as the most laid back country. Sweden see Danes as lazy and without self-control ever, and in Norway they’re seen as people who pursuit a comfortable life.

    Norway is seen as the country that is most in touch with it’s beautiful nature. The Swedes see them as unhygienic fish-eaters, and the Danes see them as calm and easy going people.

    Of the three countries, Denmark and Norway has the best relationship. Obviously. :XD:
    But deep down we all see each others as friends.



    Do you think that's true?

    Been reading 'Scandinavia and the World' much, have we..?

    But yeah, those stereotypes helps illustrate some small, specific differences between the Scandinavian peoples, although they are a bit vague and often not shared by the entire Nation in question. The Danes definitely are the oddballs in the bunch, though, no matter how you look at it.

    Denmark has never taken gold in a winter Olympics. That is just plain wrong for a Scandinavian country.

    Sadly, there is some truth to this.

    Denmark has had more contact with Germany so is a bit more germanised than the other two mentioned scandinavian countries. That's why it's the oddball of the three. But all three countries and Germany itself have had much cross pollination, for good and bad.

    The Law and Justice have only seldom anything to do with one another. At the most they wave at each other when they pass one another on the street.

    Whats funny about that is that the Saxons in England thought that about the Vikings that settled in England (mostly Danes) They commented that Northmen took multiple Baths per week, and kept thier hair combed (they thought it was effemenant, and were surprised great warriors were so clean) this was back in the 800's
    Where now the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing?
    Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?
    Where is the hand on the harp-string, and the red fire glowing?
    They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow;
    The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow.

    ''Denmark has had more contact with Germany so is a bit more germanised than the other two mentioned scandinavian countries. That's why it's the oddball of the three. But all three countries and Germany itself have had much cross pollination, for good and bad.''

    Could this be the reason Danes have a reputation as ''warm'' and ''laid-back,'' maybe more so than Swedes and Norwegians?
    I guess it could be the ''german influence'' that accounts for the almost odd-man status Denmark has among the scandinavian Nations. It is an interesting question. Stereotypes are good to ''probe,'' as they can lead you to all kinds of facts.
