I find accusations of self-importance coming from Europeans of all people to be incredibly hilarious.


Why is that?

I don't think that they think they're the best.
Although I do think that most of them are overestimating themselves, especially since (and I really don't want to stereotype so this is just most of them and not all) they are usually pretty dumb and close minded.

"Most" is still a stereotype. Ironic, you saying such a dumb and close-minded thing.


Well I guess I am stereotyping then. Not every American is dumb and close-minded. But so far nearly all that I've met are like that. I know many people that share that experience. Just stating a fact.

And collectively, even assuming I believed you, and all the people you know claimed that every American they met was "dumb and close-minded", that would probably account for what, .01 percent of the American population? And that's giving you a gigantic benefit of the doubt. That's about the only fact here.

Glad you at least admit you're stereotyping.

Because there's a whole sociological concept dedicated to how self-centered Europeans are?

From a personal stand point, many I have run into are just too into the patriotism thing. So that doesn't help much, but every country has that. Not one in particular, overall there's people who overestimate their homeland. So there's no sense in saying America in specific, though it may seem like they are the main people to think as such, it would depend if you have been to serious places, like the UK, Russia, etc. Any place can act like people say the way America is. And to whom above needs to stop generalizing on Europeans.

Eugenics is a generalization?
America is a pretty amazing country, honestly.

Now this is the proper American response. Do you see the pride in that answer? That is why we are the best. And in all sense, every nation should be showing such pride. Each citizen of every country in the world should be thinking that theirs is the best damn country in the world.

As an American, I personally don't care politically or otherwise. One day we won't be at the top of the world and I'm perfectly fine with that.

I've never noticed that Europeans are self-centered. Not even the slightest bit.

Try going to France as an American. You don't get the friendliest reception in my experience.
