I think above all we are strong individuals. We want as few rules as possible governing our lives. We are also very hard-working. People here live to work and don't work to live. We are also very optimistic, and we think that if we work hard, we can achieve anything. On the negative side, I think we are extremely materialistic.

The measure of success for most people here is money. We are extremely concerned with 'things' - possessions and the bigger the better. Personally, I think I have inherited the typical optimism and drive, and I'm also an individualist, so I think I'm probably quite typical, but I hope I'm less materialistic than many of my countrymen seem to be.

Generally speaking, I think we are very sociable and easy-going, and we're great storytellers. People are also quite religious and family oriented, we're also very patriotic. Maybe this is because we are a small country and so many of us live abroad. Historically there has always been a lot of emigration.

Weaknesses? I think we can be very melancholic and nostalgic, you only have to listen to our music to hear this - it's often quite sad and slow. It's probably because of our climate and our history.

The stereotypical image is that one minute we are laughing and telling you a funny story and the next minute we are crying into our beer. Which reminds me that we also drink quite a lot. I think I'm quite typical in many respects, although I'm not particularly melancholic.
