    “Every people” around the world can be Loud, noisy, silent,shy, arrogant,fake or whatever. But it doesn’t mean that all of us are the same, for example I’m racist and you’re not, and just because I’m racist it doesn’t mean that people in my country are racist too. You can’t really tell what kind of person the people in particular nations just by knowing one person on that particular country.

    I agree. Americans are generally louder because it’s more acceptable here. Whenever I travel to Europe, I’m always embarrassed by the incredibly loud group of Americans that you can spot from a mile away.

    I hate Americans. They are the most retarded, superfluous, fat and ugly people of the planet.
    We Dutch find Canadians much nicer people.
    The world without Americans would be a paradise. Maybe they should do something like in the movie 'the Purge' - shoot each other, and who's left alive may shoot themself in the head..

    I’m not sure if calling Americans rude and arrogant should be considered as rude and arrogant.. I know these are just stereotypes but I’m very surprised by how the dutch view Americans..

    We are Americans from a small town. Everything the older woman said and the younger man in light denim jacket, is a true definition of Americans - mostly in the suburbs and cities. In small towns we care about each other, but we do think we are better than the rest of the world because we have become a world power and a strong nation. We are known to belittle other cultures and races, we move fast and we do not listen to other people quietly. It is a fault of ours.

  • victor van dyke
    victor van dyke 3 days ago

    Well here is my two cents. My name is van Dyke! Used to be van Dijk. That was too difficult for most to pronounce, so born in South Africa, the "i" and "j" suddenly became a "y". My life in South Africa then was as van Dyk. After moving to America in 1978, it became van Dyke, which it is today. Having never lived in Holland, but still speak and read Dutch, I have my own opinions.
    America is by far the best country in the world! Just look, we even let idiots like Donny Trump become President. Non the less, most people in the world, if given a choice, will pick America over any other country as far as Economics are concerned. Nowhere else can you make as big as in America beginning with nothing.
    Now for the real answers. Yes they are sometimes rude and loud, yes they are mostly obese, yes they eat too much, yes they don't know much about other countries and cultures, yes most only speak one language, American.
    I have to tell you, living here now for more than 40 years, it is still the best in the world. Most people when you get to know them are friendly, most are very giving and will help their fellow human beings, America has lost more young soldiers defending other countries than their own, yes Europe, think about it. America has more inventions than any country, American are what keeps the world safe, whether you like it or not. America has made the world small? Yes, every time you Google something on Google Earth, every time you use the internet, thank America.
    I recently (2017) toured Europe with my American son, had a great time, loved it all. We are great Premier League Football fans, go Man City, but we love America with all it's warts and all.

    I think the Dutch are about as clueless about Americans as Americans are about the Dutch. Everyone here seems to paint us with broad strokes - we're much more individual than most of the characterizations stated here. There's one thing for sure - we're nothing like the America Obama tried to change us into and we're not all as egotistical as Trump. We have a lot of pride and we are very spiritual and obviously have short comings and we have a lot to be thankful for. We have more in common with you than you think so don't be so quick to judge and we'll try to do the same. God bless!!

    The dutch spend most of their day doing nothing and getting high. They are able to do this because they are lazy socialists with sky high tax rates. "Let the others pay our way!" They are far too tolerant, which is why their women and young boys are being raped by Muslims they have naively let flock into the country. Holland hasn't had any real power for centuries. They just wait for other larger countries to free them once occupied. A very weak country with weak minded, lazy people. I loath them! I'm going to punch the next person who even mentions Holland right in the kisser!!

    The US has a population roughly the same as the five largest European countries (Russia aside), while the size of the US is 250,000 square kilometers smaller than the entire content of Europe. If someone puts all US citizens in one basket, they are the ignorant ones. With all the diversity in Europe, Europeans think the US has one mind set? Then are harsh on US citizens and culture for not being the same as it is in their country? This is why Americans don’t care what you think.

    Notice how most gave negative stereotypes. It shows that people are the same everywhere. Loud, fat, arrogant, religious, gullible, dumb, ignorant, sluts, . Now what stereotypes can you make about the Dutch after hearing them make so many negative stereotypes? Judgemental? Don’t know much about the US? Critical? Insulting? They think they are better? Ironic 🤔

    To be honest, this video is so cringy. As a Dutch person, I feel embarrassed. Personally I don't believe in stereotypes, instead I believe in individualism. Besides, people seem to forget that the US is huge and people in every state have a different lifestyle.
    The video on itself is a good tool to show us all how shallow we really are. Not only the Dutch :)

    There's an German, an American, and an Dutch guy on a boat. The boat starts sinking and the German guy says, "QUICK! GET THE WOMEN AND THE CHILDREN OFF THE BOAT!" The American says, "FUCK THE CHILDREN" and the Dutch guy says, "DO WE HAVE TIME FOR THAT?"

Some of us possess qualities and attributes that most of the people in the world will never aquire in this life or in the next. 😉

    If you ask an American what they think of the Dutch, we would probably just say they are insignificant drug addicts who think immoral prostitution is ok. Sad that these people Yafa interviewed are so ignorant. If you lived where I live, yes, you need a car because we are bigger and my local grocery store isn’t a mile down the cobblestone walkway, but 10 miles from my house. I find it interesting that most of these people probably haven’t ever been to America. And if it is so bad, and we are so bad then why is everyone trying to come here? Oh yea, because we are great!

    You Americans in these comments are losing your minds. We all have a picture in our mind about other groups of people so these folks are just putting that out when asked a direct question. Keep in mind the video was probably edited to be somewhat negative. On any given day I can go into a public place and experience real life examples of fat, workaholic, over zealous or uneducated Americans. I can also find real examples of genuine, warm, intelligent, healthy, open minded Americans. The last guy interviewed probably had the best response.
    Texas is bigger than the entire country of France so there is no way to pigeonhole such a large and diverse population. Our diversity comes not just from ethnicity but also religion, education, and the blending of all these things within families, friendships and communities across our country. It’s just not possible to explain to foreigners.

    "They think they are better than everyone else", interesting misunderstanding if this British woman, to think we'll of yourself is NOT the same thing as thinking poorly of others, of comparing oneself to others.
    An older Italian man explained these kinds of ctural differences to me. He said that both America and German tourists looked and sounded very much alike (ie, lid), but Germans jusged everything they saw as inferior to Germany, while Americans did not make any comlarison, ie, Americans all were saying everything was wonderf, "Wow! This castle is GREAT!"., and made no comment one way or another about the US.

    It's actually a strange question: 'what are stereotypes the Dutch have about Americans..' the whole definition of a stereotype is 'an image that is widely believed, but that doesn't accurately reflect the reality'. So by answering this question you'll get answers that Dutch believe are widely believed but not true...
