Despite the spike in the population of beta males, US culture is generally very competitive so many people will subconsciously embellish to make their situation sound more extreme in order to make a more significant impression.Personally, I find it to be a double-edged sword. Competitiveness breeds success, but in this case it has also given rise to lots of moronic and narcissistic behavior. I particularly hate it when someone trying to paint themselves as a victim of something goes on to elaborately describe a petty first-world problem by comparing it to the Holocaust.
It enlightened me. You observed in a different perspective. Thank you!
I think it's because they have never lived in a time where they had to worry about how to get food for tomorrow or even today on a daily basis and got used to it, that food grows on the Market.Since then people take it for granted and tend to be surprised at everything even at the usual stuff.When i was surviving and starving and alone things stopped to surprise me. I conserved my energy to make it through the days and years.That setting sticks with me even now when i no longer have to worry about how to get food. You can say it's a scar in my soul.
I've noticed that Turkish people are much worse about exaggerating things.
Then you are Turkish!:)
Well I'm good at it :)
That's good to know.
Have an opinion?
If you’re referring to facial expressions I suspect this goes back to having become a US habit during various immigration waves. I’ve seen some research showing that Americans smiled more than Europeans since those waves. The speculation is that some of these things may have become good ways to communicate with people with different native tongues. Basically become a little more broad in body language/ expression to compensate.
Yes this is why I dont like US sitcoms friends excluded somehow that is a little more natural but acting in American sitcoms is so exagerated the jokes are not funny because they are so obviously jokes by the actors exagerated over acted delivery of punch lines.
There's some research that points to it first appearing during the first immigration waves as a way of more easily communicating with others of a different tongue since generally facial expressions are more or less all the same in regard to their meaning.A smile is gonna mean the same thing in China as it would in Mexico you know?
We gain our social cues from television. which is highly dramatized.
Maybe. American TV shows are little too much 2
Yes they are called Tv Programs for a reason. They are meant to influence the mind and change behavior its extremely powerful
We are in an age of social anarchy, everyone needs to get their 15 minutes of fame at any cost, this isn't limited to Americans, America just has a much larger population than most European countries which is why it's so noticed by smaller less populated countries.
You complain about Americans exaggerating then use the word “everything” at the end of your question. Lol. Ironic, eh?
Nope. It is not ironic. Generalization and exaggeration is not same thing.
If you are on faceboof or any other socail media then most things are exaggerated to create a diversion
It may seem exaggerated because American's are more outwardly expressive than others from my observations
Inferiority complex. The only valuable people are those that are popular, rich, have 10000 followers, etc.
we live in an over stimulated environment, so to feel something, we go to extremes.
You wanna... you know... give an example or two so that we know what you're actually talking about?
don't need it i think.
Cuz everything's better in America and everything's bigger in Texas
I think that proves her point
lol texas is smaller than alaska.
Better way to get a reaction out of people. More reactions = more views. More views = sharing. Basically being a virus, hence the term "viral".
Your username is pink! You see that exclamation point... So exaggerated... :o
I hardly know any American movie that doesn't deal with them saving the world from the dumbest threats imaginable.
I think only some people do.Im really relaxed and calm.
Men do their penises. Women do with all the discrimination stuff and what they don't get paid.
Make better distinctions. Some of us prefer hyperbole
Because they're people, just like everyone else
Because we are Hollywood, we are dramatic
because it's literally awesome
I beg to differ what-you-see-is-what-you-get
Because my cock IS huge.
fear of the consequences
Its a culture of superlatives
I think everything is an exaggeration...
We are faggots
I don't know, but you're right we're so dramatic
Makes suing more likely
they don’t... the UK outlawed knives for fuck sakes now that’s exaggerating. I’d say the UK is probably the worst for overreacting to issues
I don't know, wondered about it too when I first got here. I guess attention, social proof, something along those lines
Tell me about it
