    Saw a funny picture recently, "What's an Icelandic person's worst nightmare? - A stranger talking to them." I would say it's true for Nordic countries in general, but once you get to know us, we are usually pretty good friends

    I'd say European Germanics are known for being mostly introverted. Here's a list of the 11 Most Introverted Countries In The World, more than half are Germanic countries. In Europe, introversion is not seen as a negative thing however. It's mostly Americans who see it as a minus.

    From the aforementioned list:

    Austria: What people say: “I’ve been to Austria a few times, beautiful country, introverted yes, friendly, not so much.” (city-data.com)

    Belgium: “Of the nineteen or so countries I visited, perhaps the most profound experience was in the Flanders region of Belgium. It was here I embraced the knowledge of how special it was to live as an introvert.” (nancyfenn.wordpress.com)

    Denmark: What people say: “(The Danish) are just not easy to know on a closer level. I would say they are more private and keep to those they know well.” (portal.foreignersindenmark.dk)

    Iceland: What people say: Iceland has a whole section of a social networking site dedicated to Icelandic introverts and shy singles. Enough said.

    Sweden: What people say: “... social relationships are particularly problematic among Swedes. This may manifest itself as communication apprehension, reservedness, desire for social autonomy, positive attitudes towards loneliness, and strict boundaries between private and public life“. (www.nordicway.com)

    Switzerland: “Switzerland’s type is much more introverted, inward, private. Few Swiss, for example, entertain others in their homes. Where an introvert in America is the “odd man out”, in Switzerland the introvert is the norm“. (jungiancenter.org)

    The reason many Americans have been socially conditioned to favor extroversion as opposed to introversion is mainly due to Capitalist economic considerations. The more sociable one is, the more likely they are to cave-in to peer pressure and spend more money.

    Introversion is often mistakenly confused with being a dreadful anti-social loner. Of course, this ignorance is all part of the programming.
    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.

    I value and respect introverts people .

    Extroverts? Nope. Those feels unnatural, fakes, superficials and in longer run ... tiresome company.

    I'd say Scandinavia and other Germanic countries as a whole are more introverted than most other countries I've visited, and I like it that way personally. I'm not unfriendly at all, but I would agree with hard to get to know but a great friend once you do. Also we're not all touchy feely like many Mediterraneans and some people seeing wanting more personal space as being rude, but to us respecting your personal space is being nice.
