Yesterday I talked about how Americans tend to express everything in extremes and of course we had to compare a little bit with Europe and with India. If you think about Europe, people are more careful about overpraising something. You can hear it in a way like ‘Oh yes, it was quite nice.’ Or ‘We had a good evening together.’ But you would not hear that often: ‘Oh my god, it was so awesome, such a shame that you have not been there, you missed so much fun!’ People might be very happy in Europe, too, but they would not say it in such an extreme way.
As I said yesterday, it is just a very different situation and when you know it, it is good. It is great that people here in the US get that enthusiastic because you can quickly get some nice energy built up. In Germany and Europe it can take a bit longer until people ‘get warm’. But they will probably remain on that level longer, it is more stable.
It is very interesting to see the way how people express themselves and I will write about this more in the next days.
