  10. 10. Typical stereotypes of European countries a with hint of humour Finland Depressed and emotionless vodka drinkers Rude, introverted and emotionless people who live in the woods and split their time between hitting themselves with birch branches in the sauna and hunting bears. Germany Car lovers and humourless hardworkers Germans are regarded as hardworking who love their cars more than anything, efficient and disciplined, but also stiff and humourless. Poland Hard-drinking Catholic zealots Poles are mostly regarded as convinced Catholics and they drink lots of alcohol per citizen per year. This may be a consequence of the rough and turbulent reputation of vodka. Spain Fiesta, siesta and macho men? Spanish people are said to be loud and lazy with a passionate character. There’s the siestas in the afternoon, and the partying at night.
