I know someone might get feel bad about this question. But I Want to know what others feel about this. Which country has the best people/human being in this world and why? I know that every country has good and bad people but even that we can generalize this and tell the answer.
My answer to this is we (Americans) are the best because we think about others also. we are responsible and think ahead and help people.

IMO this would be very hard to answer unless you have lived in multiple countries.

This will quickly get moved out of Other Topics and into Politics and Other Controversies.

Being an American...sure there are great folks here. But the few times I've driven through Canada...I've met some really fine people, and some that did me a great favor with a broken vehicle. Most were in no rush to get anywhere, and took time to tell or listen to stories. Just overly nice people. I'm gonna choose western Canada eh!

I think you will find that many countries think about others as well. When it gets right down to a disaster, many countries are ready and willing to help.

There is no such thing as best people in the world and then point to the USA as the winner. There is also no such thing as worst people in the world either.

Every country in the world has their good and bad. There are considerate people, selfish people, hateful people, gentle people all over the world.

I am guessing you are quite young and haven't had the opportunity to travel or expose yourself to different cultures. This can be a highly enlightening learning experience and one that you might enjoy.

I don't think you can narrow it down like that. I've lived in Germany, Philippines, been to Hong Kong, all over Europe, Mexico, the Caribbean countries of Haiti, Dominican Republic, territory of Puerto Rico, and lived in Cuba two years.
I found people exceptionally gracious and helpful everywhere except the Philippines. I'm not sure if it's the culture or the grinding poverty, but I hated it and felt very unwelcome there and always on high alert for pickpockets, transsexual prostitutes proposition men even right in plain view of Hotel doormen, and they act like they deserve gifts from any visitor from a rich country.
Other than that, I love the people everywhere else I've met, including the USA.

I don't think you can classify one country friendlier, more helpful,etc than the next.We are all human and have good and bad days. If I go to England and someone flips me the bird, I just think he is crude, not all the people in England.

The kindest people I have met are Koreans, Turks, and the French.

The rudest I've met are the English, Italians, Spanish, and Russians.


American people are alright to a certain extent. Us Americans are very warm at first, but if we don't like someone, we start to back off and sometimes in a rude way...

Well, if we don't like someone.. are we expected to continue on in the way we were? I don't think so. Backing off is a normal, and expected response.
