Hi Everybody!

Please give your opinions about these sentences: (if they are wrong, please correct them JUST in one sentence.)

- Poles are the most family-minded of Europeans.
- Importance of religion among Poles is as much as it is among other Europeans.
- Poles are traditional in mind, but modern in practice.
- Most Poles are conservative because of the impact of former communism.

AND

Please let me know bout distinctive feature or features of Poles/Poland in comparison with other European countries.

AND I hope you will give impartial opinions. And if you know of a site to provide COMPARATIVE information about Poland (in comparison with other European countries please mention.)

Dziękuję

you need a solid data / statistics not opinions to make claims like this .

7d-culture.nl - or google Trompenaars and Hamden-Turner

Also google Geert Hofstadter, though I'm not sure if his work covers PL or not.

Frankly both go a bit beyond the rather obvious categories you have posted above.

I need personal opinions of Poles, TOO.

The problem is, Justyna, you need generalized opinions. While generalized opinions make little sense. OK, saying "Poles are generally less family-minded than the Italian or Greek" would perhaps make some sense. How do you measure that? By rate of divorces or?

The questions are wrongly formulated.

As for me and only me:
-- I'm am not a family-minded man
-- Religion is of little importance to me
-- I'm modern in mind and in practice although I do not run after every new thing just because it is new but only if the new thing is good.

-- Who is conservative? I? ;-) I'm modern because I do not want to conserve anything what remained from the communist order.

Of course, some lady here had said I was statistically insignificant but she was an American ;-)

Thank you. :) Your reply is what I wanted. I hope others will give their personal opinions, too. Because I want personal experience and opinions.
