I find Finnish people being generally quite emotional, also in literature and music, but we are also very good in hiding our emotions from outsiders. I never argue or kiss my special one on the street, it's something you do in private.
I don't think people of different cultural backgrounds experience different amounts of emotion, some are just more likely to show/express it than others.

If you think about it, most of the reports rudeness come from Paris, the top destination in France. It doesn't necessarily represent the rest of the country anymore than NYC represents the whole of the US.

BTW great link, OP.

Most of the rudeness of Paris has nothing to do with the nationality of the people.
This is just big City attitude, Parisian tends to have a low tolerance on the people who are on their way.
The customer service in Paris is not very good. Workers of this sector just don't care of the customers.
Some other inhabitants are fed up of tourists.
But the fact that a tourist is American or not, doesn't change anything in the eyes of most parisian.

They don't hate you because you are Americans, they hate you because you are tourists.

Hate might not be the right word, but yeah, I've heard report of this in Paris even from non-parisian French.

New York has a similar reputation. After all, whats the point of paying the high cost to live in a world class city if you can't act demeaning towards people?

No, that map shows how Muslims in a given country feel about democracy. It's not a reflection on how many Russians are Muslim, but obviously there are quite a few who are.

Map #5 portrays Russia, accurately, as a majority Christian country.

The world has roughly 7 billion people, and each color on this map represents a part of the world where 1 billion people reside. Red and orange, which contain China and India, are pretty tightly packed!
