I don't think Americans are that open compared to people of other cultures.

Maybe it is because for our entire history, (most) people here have had the freedom to speak their minds and defend their positions without worrying that the local (village head man or local clergy) or national (Kim Jong-un, Saddam Hussein, Hitler, Stalin, etc...) authority will come kill your family.

What part of the world are you from and are people in your home afraid to speak their minds?

I am quite open with those who I have a strong bond with. I wouldnt go up to a stranger and discuss intricate details about me. You form close relationships with those you open up to. I dont have a facebook/social media accounts if thats what you mean, I do not post my life online for public to see in that regard.

Where do you live at where you actually think your typical American is too open?


Most are cold, don't like their business out in the open, selfish, and self serving only.

Whatta stupid over-generalization.
I'm American born and raised and don't consider myself all that open to people I dont know.

If I dont know you, I probably wouldn't even talk to you. Not being snobbish either, just not that type of person to "put it all out there" to people I dont even know. I dont care to really.

Why are Americans so open? I dont really think they are all that open.

I'm extremely open. Nothing is taboo and I'll be happy to discuss my successes and my failures. I have nothing to be ashamed of.
