My boyfriend and I recently had a conversation where we tried to type national characters as cognitive functions.
This is what we got:
- Fe: Italy (most romantic country ever)
- Fi: Canada (cutest country ever)
- Te: the Netherlands (TeSi - the Dutch are known for their directness and everything is extremely well-planned there; also they complain a lot about everything)
UK (TeNi - successful warfarers and colonialists; slightly supercilious; absurdistic sense of humor)
- Ti: Germany (TiNe - yielded many of the greatest scientists and philosophers in history; makes good cars)
Swiss (TiSe - makes great watches; stubbornly individual (doesn't want to join EU))
- Ne: India (crazy buzzing country; their religion encourages getting high and has 100s of gods with multiple arms and elephant heads and all)
- Ni: Russia (yielded many of the greatest writers in history; dark and mysterious)
France (arty-farty; a bit dirty; when national hero Serge Gainsbourg sang a duet with his daughter about the sex they could never have [YouTube: /watch?v=-vR0jpfOW94], everyone was kind of okay with that)
- Se: United States (SeTi - everything is bigger in America; love for action and sensation)
Spain and Latin America (SeFi - very passionate, party-loving and extraverted)
- Si: Japan (SiTe - literally work themselves to death; traditional; proud; have rules for every social interaction; make exquisite refined food (displaying Si) and have very specific rules about how you should eat it to have the perfect sensory experience (Te); very weird (inferior Ne))
What are your thoughts?
