Preconceptions, i love them
We all have them, and as long as we are aware of that we do, they can be really fun
If i for example, a swede far from the United states of america, think about the southern part of us,
I think about tothless hillbillys in trailers with the confederate flag tattooed on the shoulder.
Blonde bimbos in homemade jeans shorts.
All talking with a funny accent, and all rasist to the core.
Everyone has a shotgun with wich they target practise on empty beerbottles hanging in strings from an old swingframe, while sitting crazy drunk in an
old served out armchair.
Haha i know that the real life dont look like that except for probably some extreme cases
But still, that is the picture i get in my mind, and thus it is a preconception.
Australians, if i think about them i get an image of really pale people, pale because in australia everyone except crocodile dundee is afraid of the
sun and skincancer
Ive never been to either the us or australia, so if i should make an example of a place nerby where ive actually have been.
All finnish dudes go around with knives, knives that they have made themselves, they hardly ever talk,
And they all are afraid of showing emotions and even more afraid of their wifes. Who is even more bad ass then the guys
They are all not so smart
they are kind of dumb and gullible
I know many finnish people wich i love as dear friends. And i know that its only preconceptions. The same goes for norweigans
So if looked upon in the right light, preconceptions can be fun
Please share your similair preconceptions of people from different places than yourselves, and please please let me know how the world see the swedes
Have a nice time whatever time of the day or night you find yourselfs in
