How do the Czechs see themselves? / Jak Cesi hodnoti sami sebe?

How do Czechs evaluate themselves this year? According to a recent poll about 1,000 Czech voters see themselves as:
– witty
– ambitious
– smart
– outgoing
– fun to be around
– pleasant

What is interesting is that five years ago the Czechs evaluated themselves more as hard-workers and rational thinkers (I guess we have lightened up a bit since then :0).

How do the Czechs see other nationalities?

Moravians = witty and hospitable
Germans = individualists, focused, wealthy, arrogant and stuck up
Slovaks = also witty and hospitable
Vietnamese = hard-worker, thriftiness, two-faced
Roma = impulsive, boisterous, difficulty to assimilate, slow, two-faced

But where are the negative aspects of the Czech nature? Oh wait, I forgot, we don’t have any! We are simply GREAT all the time!!! :0))


CZ:Jak se Cesi tento rok zhodnotili? Podle agentury Focus to s nami neni tak spatne. Kolem tisice ucastniku vyse uvedene ankety jsou Cesi:
– spolecensti
– maji smysl pro humor
– ambiciozni
– chytri
– sympaticti
– prijemni

Pred peti lety se videli vice jako narod pracovity a racionalni. Takto take hodnoti jine narody:
Moravaci – smysl pro humor, pohostinnost
Nemci – orientace na vykon, ambice a individualismus; preciznost, bohatost; arogance a namyslenost
Slovaci – smysl pro humor a pohostinnost (pred peti lety to byla impulsivnost a nespoutanost)
Romove – impulsivnost, nespoutanost, pomalost, vypocitavost, arogance; tezko se prizpusobuje
Vietnamci – pracovitost, sporivost, vypocitavost

    Hůře dopadá průzkum, jak vidí Čechy
    cizinci.

    Z článku http://www.radio.cz/cz/rubrika/udalosti/cizinci-vidi-cechy-jako-venkovany-vyrabejici-hlavne-olej

    Nejsme národ skvělých hokejistů a krásných dívek, nýbrž civilizací nepříliš zasažená země obývaná rázovitými a udřenými vesničany. Jsme levná pracovní síla a to hlavní, na co se zmůžeme, je výroba slunečnicového oleje a věžních hodin a máme sklon k melancholii.

    Ahoj Jarybo! No to je super doplnujici clanek! Dekuju!!! To musim hned prelozit a dat to na blog jako ‘kapitola 2.” :0)

    Fakt mi prislo divny (hlavne take vtipne), ze clanek ktery jsem nasla ja, nezminuje zadne negativni vlastnosti Cechu, i kdyz se zminuje o negativnich vlastnostech cizincu.

    Thought some negatives were tunelovany penize and taxi drivers. Ive had people tell me that also beer drinking.

    Very funny about taxi drivers…I hope this does not come from Americans 🙂 The taxi drivers here are horrible and their cars even worse! Not to mention what they charge.

    That reminds me that one time I left my purse on the side of the road (here in the USA) and guess who returned it to me (he even drove to my house!) – a taxi driver!!! The nicest guy….

    Wow! That’s awesome! So they can’t all be bad! I actually use a private taxi due to the horibleness of regular taxis at DFW airport and the guy is also extremely nice and has nice clean cars.
