Stereotypes for Americans and Europeans

The principal stereotype attached to Americans is workaholics. That's based on the prevalence of 2 parents working and of working long hours.

The European stereotype - of course, not always true - is of leading a relaxed lifestyle, leaving considerable room for time with friends and family and for eating.

The Euros think of Americans as lacking in aesthetic education - making judgments in regards gracefulness and freshness.
