General behavior of Nihonjin

Post by Steve_Poppers » Sat 01.27.2007 3:56 pm

Some people I've spoken to keep telling me that nihonjin are just as rude and ingorant as americans or nearly so. None of them have been to Japan, but they still make me wonder. I don't know, but I really doubt it. Could somebody set me straight?

Well it's not spelt 'nihinjin' for a start, or 'igorant'. :D

I think that people shouldn't talk about Japanese people if they've never been to Japan. That's kind of stupid.
Finally!

So I'm not the best typist or proof-reader. Can you help me out?

Sure. Get Firefox 2 it includes an inbuilt spell checker that works when you're typing in textboxes.

Japanese are human and thus include the usual quota of jerks, nimrods and general no-gooders. It's just when and where that fact is made evident that differs between countries.

Generally speaking, Japanese people are of Japanese origin. I can't be any more specific than that.

I guess that's true. It isn't obvious in America which people are jerks in a random crowd. Why would it be in Japan? I know most of the people in school, and it's a pretty relaxed environment, so it's fairly obvious who is a jerk and who isn't. I don't get out much...
