Can anyone from America tell us about the regional rivalries i.e. East coast vs West Coast, Midwest vs South etc?
I'd like to know about regional stereotypes as well especially about the Cajun/Creole people. (and please do not refer me to the wikipedia website. I know how to search on the internet)
With 24 hours of their day, Americans like to accomplish as much as they can.
If you are someone who likes to take their time at the workplace while everyone else is rushing (rushing 'effectively' ) then you will look lazy in the eyes of your boss. You are to complete as much as you can in as little time possible. In some positions this backfires. For example, being a student in school. Your teacher may load you with so mich work that it will be ineffective because of the lack of repetition and the ineffective speed of teaching, which is usually short to keep on moving to try to accomplish it all! Which mainly unfortunately is the attitude a lot of people have here in the US.
Some Americans are hard-workers, very dedicated to their work. Usually these Americans came from excellent schools in high-class districts (in cities mostly) and have the learned habit to keep on learning. Other Americans from lower-class schools and low-class districts usually spend their time in idle, pastimes taking over most of their time. These are large generalizations, because there does live smart low-class Americans and uneducated high-class Americans. Habits amongst the (North) Americans as a whole would be to be involved with TV watching/Internet usage/Phone usage/Traveling (with the USA or other countries sometimes). I believe because all the opportunity we Americans have and all the little opportunity we Americans can have paralyzes us into mediocrity.
