Americans have a warmth and friendliness which is less superficial than many foreigners think. They are considered sentimental. When on ceremonial occasions they see a flag, or attend parades celebrating America's glorious past, tears may come to their eyes. Reunions with family and friends tend to be emotional, too. They like to dress correctly, even if "correctly" means flamboyantly. They love to boast, though often with tongue in cheek. They can laugh at themselves and their country, and they can be very self-critical, while remaining always intensely patriotic. They have a wide knowledge of everyday things, and a keen interest in their particular city and state. Foreigners sometimes complain, however, that they have little interest in or knowledge of the outside world.
美国人热心、友好,并不像有些外国人想的那样表面化。人们都认为美国人比较感性。在庆典上看到国旗或者参加那些庆祝美国辉煌历史的阅兵式上,他们或许会眼含热泪。与家人或者朋友重聚时,他们也会感情流露。他们喜欢穿着得体,即时有时候带有炫耀的成分。他们喜欢自吹自擂,尽管多数只是说说而已。他们有时候嘲笑自己,嘲笑自己的国家,有时候还比较自责,但是他们却始终富于强烈的爱国之心。他们对于日常琐事了解非凡,对自己所在的州和城市充满兴趣。然而,外国人有时候常常抱怨,他们对于外部世界漠不关心也所知甚少。
