    Germany didn't change me, I actually found a perfect place where I actually fit in! In my homeland, I was the outcast for being too much in to planning and organizing; no rush, no nosey personality. So I really feel like I belong, finally ♥

    So funny that people from south America say Germany is so structured and organized while the lady from China basically said - in a very polite way - it's complete chaos. Beautiful. XD

      Well, I guess in China strikes are simply not allowed. I could be wrong. But there, you do as you're told or your 'social credit score' gets lowered. They just keep going and have the system engrained in them.

      I get her point tho! Many Asian countries are much more efficiently organized. Cause in Germany we have a big problem with paperwork complicating many processes and it shows when you are trying to file for a new ID or stuff like that. It will take months

      @Lea C. S. sure. Let's take the best of each and make it ours. Asian structure ( the positive sides to it. ) With south American vibes, dances and music. German beer and land scapes on top. Doesn't sound all too bad to me.

    Germany changed me a lot. first of all, I became much more organized. I learnt how to enjoy small things and also Germany inspire me a lot. This country is literally a well of inspiration and new knowledge to be picked up. Every day when I get up I feel so excited that I live in this outstanding country. Also I became much calmer and easy-going person. Germany made me much more patient and logically acting person with systematized approach towards solving problems.

      I have lived in the US the majority of my life but feel like I’m better aligned with German values. The US has been disappointing for a developed nation which was built on systems and processes but common folks do not value a good system and so there is more chaos than necessary when going about your daily life (outside of work).

    In Turkey small talk is important.The lady next to you in a bus/train/metro/plane will start talking to you. The person waiting next to you in bank/hospital will talk to you. Your taxidriver,your barber,your coworkers will talk to you. you can sit on a public bench and can start talking the random person who sit beside you. Weddings are a huge thing in Turkey for example their size are incredibly big like 200-1000 people (sometimes bigger) comes you can totally find a new person to talk. Sociality is a very important in our culture along with hospitality.

    Lived and worked in Germany, fitted in with the Germans very easily, and found them to be great at helping out, interesting to talk to and very wonderful people. Went to China 6 times and found that the Chinese streets will virtually come to a standstill, with the pedestrians, to ogle you if you're non Asian, or non African. Lived in Korea for a spell, beautiful food, very inexpensive and the people are very hospitable, even if the girls fall asleep on your shoulder on the train.

      Went to boarding school in North America. In the mess hall, every nationality would intermingle and sit at the same tables. Europeans, Americans, Africans, Japanese, Koreans, South Americans etc.. Then on the other side of the hall there were the Chinese who would only talk to each other. I mean if you get the chance to meet people from all over the world, why not take it? Instead they just stayed among themselves.

    I've been living in Germany for more than 12 years. Coming from a very quiet, small and humble northern country, I have always been shy. Watching this video has made me realise that I have become very honest and unapologetic 😂 I loved rules and laws before but now even more - I need everything to have structure and things go according to the plan. In my opinion Germans are not spontaneous at all and I have started to hate surprises 😂
    It's really cool to see how one grows as a person in another culture and environment.

      Your remark comes as a surprise. I hate it. 🙂 Just joking. Yes, a lot people don't like surprises as we are more on the pessimistic side and so a lot of people think surprise = bad.

    • lemsip
      lemsip Month ago

      @Volrath`s Stronghold I don't like them either especially as I get older. If you are planning a surprise party for someone you have to convince them to come out with you for a quiet drink to a venue where the surprise party is when they are feeling down about not many people remembering their birthday. Like in the film Angus, Thongs And Perfect Snogging when the protagonist has her fifteenth birthday. Her mother wakes her up in the morning and tells her that for her birthday treat they would be going to a night club. Just the two of them knowing that her friends will attend the birthday party of her love rival in another night club. Someone she always hated and it was even worse when the love rival started dating her crush. Then the protagonist gets to the nightclub to find there is a surprise party for her and hardly anyone is at the other birthday party.
      Plus they can be used to upset other plans the receiver might have. Deliberately or unintentionally.

    Germany hasn‘t changed me because I am German.🤗
    But I definitely feel that Germany changed a lot over the last 50 years, people getting more relaxed, more international (EU), more tolerant, speaking better English, less formal (much more Du instead of Sie, more hugging and so on).

      I work at a bigger german company and it took me a bit to adjust to call even my boss by his first name after school drilled me for over 13 years to refer to higher ups per last name or „Sie“

    • Paul Szkibik
      Paul Szkibik Month ago +1

      At this point if I applied to another company and found out that I have to use "sie" to my colleagues that would be kind of an instant-no.
      I use "sie" so incredibly rarely nowadays. Like when talking to an older in a supermarkt or something. For anyone else I'd rather use "du" just to create an immediate connection (or rather avoid immediate distance) when talking to anyone.

    I'm English and my husband is German and, when he met me, he said he would've assumed by the way I look and act that I'm German not British. When I asked why he said it's because I wear very little makeup, I don't wear skimpy dresses to go out when it's freezing cold (apparently he got a shock when he saw British women wearing tiny dresses in winter on a night out), I'm more health conscious than the average Brit (he'd seen a lot of Brits binge drinking), I'm fair but not pasty, and I'm quite reserved and I love efficiency!

      @Ben Fischer Not everyone does, but many do - especially on a night out. A lot of the women I know and am friends with wear very thick foundation and heavy eye makeup. Big lips, hair extensions and very thick, drawn on eyebrows are popular here too. I haven't seen as much of that in Germany.

    I'm German, live in Berlin, and I know quite a lot of foreigners due to taking part in meetups - a thing almost no German knows about. I feel like they live a completely life to Germans. The two groups don't really mix. Most expats don't work normal office jobs, they work in startups or it. Germans work in shops, they work as carpenters, they work for the state or in normal boring offices. You don't really meet the other group.
    So I'd say that all these answers from these expats are independent of them being here in Germany. They are just away from home and forced to grow up and become independent because they're far from their social security net. I would bet that 90% of these answers are the same with any expat group around the world.

    • Calamity Jane
      Calamity Jane 6 months ago +15

      True, a lot of the answers were any expat experience. Though some could also be the opposite, i.e. embrace the chaos vs. embrace the organization. I feel like sometimes you just fit better in one culture or another, as a personality. I grew up in Asia, as an Austrian, and when I came back I struggled with making friends, fitting in with the culture and finding my place, even though I look and sound Austrian 100%. Strangers actually asked me if one of my parents was a foreigner, because it was so awkward. Nowadays people don't ask, but I tend to hang with the immigrant/expat crowd, rather than with carpenter/government office crowd.

    • kulak
      kulak 6 months ago +19

      I don't think that's true. You're talking about expats only, not every foreigner is an expat. There's plenty of foreigners working "normal" jobs - normal immigrants. The expat bubble is a very specific subset of foreigners with a very specific type of experience.

    • Andreas Sumerauer
      Andreas Sumerauer 5 months ago +21

      As a German living in a small town with 50000 inhabitants, I must say that I have the complete opposite experience. Regardless of profession and lifestyle, Germans and foreigners get to know each other here. That's because we are together in kindergarten, at school and at work.
      On the other hand, having lived in Berlin in the past, I can confirm your statement from my own experience. Nevertheless, it is not typical for Germany that people stick together in isolated subcultures. That's simply how people lead their lives in the big cities - not only in Germany, but all over the world. When you live among millions of others, you do have to actively ignore 99.9% of your fellow human beings just to stay sane.
      The life in a smaller community allows you to see, know and like so many of your neighbors that one would simply have ignored in the big city.

    14:10 - I learned this by traveling abroad too. I think American Exceptionalism is so incredibly strong that you don't even realize you have it.

    When I came to Germany I was already, independent, punctual and organized. I was happy for finding at last a place that suits me. The thing is that I have Latin blood inside and I was used to connect with people easier and to make friends everywhere. Here I feel myself isolated. Lucky thing is that I am more introverted than extroverted but still I miss the ease of connecting with people. I think that would have been another story if I came here as a student, as a younger person. I find that Germans live in very close circles in which you as foreigner don't come in. ( I live in Germany for 8 years and come from Romania).

    a great idea to ask people that question.. you could to the same interview in Switzerland and Austria. It would be interesting to see whether people will reply more or less along the same lines or mention very different things...

    I got used to cold and having less or no friends. Other than that I cannot attest to much because I moved to Germany at the age of 21, when you are growing up and changing as a person anyway. So I guess Germany shaped me into a person that I am today more than my home country did. I've learned to be more self- reliable here. But like I said, not much to compare to since I moved here very young.

    About the monitor on the car. I still don’t recommend doing this in Germany leaving your stuff unattended in public. Because I encountered many occasions where the stuff I left/forgot in public wasn’t there anymore when I came back to look for it. Turns out every single time it wasn’t stolen, but somebody took my stuff to the Fundbüros😂 (a place where „lost“ stuff is gathered and you can go there and get it back for free). In fact once when I was little somebody took my schoolbackpack and returned it to the school(bc the books had my school name including my name) and alas, my name was called out through the speakers throughout the whole school to get my backpack back.

  • GardenGeek

    Bravo, Mr. Brit! Of all the questions on all the blogs with man-on-the-street interviews, this one has to be one of the most THOUGHT PROVOKING ever. Not just the info coming from the speakers, but the written comments flooding in. It will take days to read them all.
    Trying to explain Germany and its people to the outside world is no easy task. They may speak a common language, but I suspect the cultural differences between regions are significant. Also the differences between rural and urban, and between social classes.
    The country is also undergoing enormous social change due to immigration. If someone had told me 20 years ago that Germany would become the most multi-ethnic, multi-racial country in Europe, I would not have believed it. The people you interviewed seem to confirm this: from EVERY continent!
    Something special must be going on there. German is not an easy language to learn, and not exactly an international language. Yet, that doesn't seem to be a barrier for newcomers who have sought that destination and adapted to it.
    Something else noticeably different about this blog; not many Germans have posted comments. Comments are streaming in from the international community. When I look at a similar blog from Holland directed at anglophones, 90% of the written reponses come from Dutch people. They are very concerned how the outside world perceives them. That applies to many countries. Could it be that Germans are not so self-conscious as other nationalities?
    As a sociologist, I encourage you to keep up the good work, keep asking good questions. It is all very enlightening. Thanks!

    as someone who was born in Schweinfurt it pains me just a little that the girl from South Korea did not feel welcome there. I think when we still had the US military bases in Schweinfurt, her experience might have been better. I myself left Schweinfurt for the US decades ago, but i do go back to see family every year. I hope this improves. At the same time, there are not many cities quite like Munich. Schweinfurt does have a huge international community, though. Turkish is very well represented for sure.

And I would not be bothered on a visit to Tanzania if black curious kids would like to touch my porky skin. I really wonder what makes her wonder that an exotic couple receives a bit more attention than any other boring neighbour.

    I came to Germany when I was 32. It didn't change me that much. Norwegian society and everyday life is not that different. It all depends on what type of person you are...
    Here are some ways Germany has affected me as a person, or things i've learned about Germany (this is in Berlin):
    1. if you want a doctor's appointment, you have to work for it.
    2. if you mess up in the slightest, like forget your monthly-train ticket at home, you will pay for it. there is no reasonable discussion to be had.
    3. no one gives a shit where you are from. get over it.
    4. Turkish people are alright, for the most part they don't care about you and keep to themselves, even if you provoke them (men).
    5. When you go out to any sort of pub, coke and amphetamine are almost treated like "do you take sugar with your tee?"
    6. air-conditioning at home is a privilege
    7. beer is cheaper than water
    8. wine is almost cheaper than water
    9. restaurant food is mostly trash. if you want to eat healthy, stay away and cook at home.
    10. it's a norm that 3-5% of all package shipments are lost
    11. people get shot in the streets, but that's mostly gangsters from abroad, or Turkish guys fighting about a girlfriend or something
    12. if you fall a sleep in wedding (part of the city), someone will wake you up and tell you "it's a dangerous place", but 10 minutes later you will find your jacket, wallet, phone, glasses and passport on the bench/table 10 m away from were you blacked out.
    13. German teens and young adults like to sing loudly when they are preparing for a party
    14. if you live close to a football field, be prepared to hear loud, hysterical shouting 3-5 times a week for 1-3 hours each time. I mean guttural, full-force shouting as if a war was going on.
    15. it's a chill place to live and there are almost no limits on what you can do on in your free time.

    Germany is not just Germany. A lot depends on where you live in Germany and in which social circles you move. Whether in the south (west), in the middle or in the east. The environment and the people there shape you much more than anything else. For example, the Germans themselves say that it is much easier to make new friends in the East than in the South. The people there are simply more open, speak their own thoughts directly. Without detours, even if it might hurt you at first. You can tell that just by phoning East Germans. And I say that myself as a West German. On the other hand, you also have to be able to deal with the relaxed manner. Whether business or private.

    From my experience living in Germany for 8 months, I’d say as a Korean, technological differences were quite a big deal to adapt here. I never carried a key(In Korea mostly ppl just type a code in the numpad to open the front door), cash, unstable mobile connection on the trains and so on. But it made me acknowledge how privileged my life was back in Korea. Even alone I used to eat out most of the meals, no worry for closed groceries and restaurants during weekends or even in the night. I could manage my life without having a discipline to prepare everything in advance. However in Germany it is completely different, the bureaucracy isn’t so quick so I have to wait while uncertainties remaining, Bus and Metros and THE NOTORIOUS DB are not punctual as in Korea. At beginning all these differences made me complain all the time, but I changed my view by hearing other ppl’s story of how their countries used to be, and by accepting the pros that only can be resulted by German culture and society. I now weigh the advantages over disadvantages in staying in Germany. If I take myself only as a temporary visitor(tourist, consumer) I’d not really appreciate what Germans thrived to create in this society, work-life balance, taking time to genuinely be alone.

      I am anglophone in Canada, and I got used to the variety of accents from the UK by watching Coronation Street when it was beamed overseas. It took time. Sometimes, I still need written captions on screen to fully understand the dialogue. For me, the most baffling UK lingo is 1)the slang spoken by teenagers (as happens in all countries) and 2) the dialects that drop consonants, like the Rs, but especially the missing T's: words like 'bottle', 'little', and even 'what', become incomprehensible.

    I want to mention that this is only one city in Germany and there are pretty big differences between cities like Munich, Berlin, Hamburg and Cologne when it comes to people. And smaller more rural areas are completely different again, especially in the eastern parts of Germany, just like the girl from South Korea described.
    I still think, that the Cologne region is the most open, fun and welcoming area overall, but that doesn't mean that everyone will be nice there and it also doesn't mean that there are no equally nice people in other regions.
    That's why I always recommend the Cologne / Rhein area as a starting point for expats and they then go from there and find a place that they like.

    You should interview some of the Spätaussiedler to get their perspective on things. They are ethnic Germans whose ancestors migrated to Eastern Europe several centuries ago and were allowed back/recruited by the Kohl government to help bolster the flagging birthrate. As I said, they are ethnic Germans, but culturally Eastern European (at least for the older generation). A lot of them have problems integrating into Germany, but are here to give their children a better life. It's an interesting and sometimes sad situation - German but not German. Try also the Rumanian Germans.

      Expat Expat 3 months ago +2

      @NobodySonOfPeleus The Federal German law "Gesetz über die Angelegenheiten der Vertriebenen und Flüchtlinge" of May 19, 1953 defines the criteria for German ethnicity. This law is the basis for the immigration of the Spätaussiedler ("spät" because they did not make it out during the Soviet era). Mixed ancestry is not a problem: Abstammung is not defined as exclusive. "Deutscher Volkszugehöriger im Sinne dieses Gesetzes ist, wer sich in seiner Heimat zum deutschen Volkstum bekannt hat, sofern dieses Bekenntnis durch bestimmte Merkmale wie Abstammung, Sprache, Erziehung, Kultur bestätigt wird." The language requirement is very flexible - quite often the elder generation of Aussiedler stiull speaks RU at home in Germany. Many do not have German surnames, e.g. Lukas Podolski, the DE footballer.

    Been born and raised in Ger and I can relate to what the Chinese woman says. Germany has been losing a whole lot of structure over the last 15 years. It is going in a US oriented chaotic direction. Education dramatically sinks to a point where people should hardly be left to make up their own decisions anymore as they are driven solely by media extremes. Wealth levels are starting to vary in levels that have never been there before. Like when 20 years ago someone was running a succesful company the boss had the bigger house and the better car. Nowadays the boss has 17 houses in various cities and a collection of 52 cars. The employees in contrast have to rent super smal flats for 60% of their income. Grammatical structure and rules are being "dissolved" while trying to include refugees into our society which does not work. You can do either one of that but not both at the same time. If you do not know how your language works, you are a 100% unable to teach it to others. Same goes for culture.

    Great video. Wonderful to see so many people from around the world. And as the American woman said "get out while you can."

    people in germany are a lot more direct and don't sugarcoat everything - that is something that a lot of foreigners see as being rude. sorry for that, but it makes quite a lot of things more efficient.

    Turkish girl isn't less friendly and outgoing because she's in Germany now. She's less friendly because she lives in Munich :D

    the best part of germany is that people are private and not as obsessed with social media. nobody is filming themselves in public, its forbidden to film random people in public, and people, especially weomen arent as attention seeking as they are in the UK or US.

      Germany doesn't have beauty standards for woman to the same extend other countries do. "woman aren't as attention seeking" is such a misogynistic comment.

      ​@jeß be Of course women are inevitably less attention-seeking if living in a country with less pronounced beauty standards. However it i's not called misogyny, but cause and effect.

    • SshreddderR

      @Maxim Kretsch its not less beauty standards, its less consumerism and less attention seeking. beauty standards dont cause people to become more attention seeking, thats just a personality trait that comes from psychological issues or insecurity of some kind.
      more make up and crazy clothes dont make women better looking, its just a form of consumerism and vanity of women. Beauty standards are universal everywhere, everything else is cope and lack of accountability. there is no artificial standard imposed on anyone anywhere, just evolutionary biology and consumerism media. stop acting like women arent accountable for their vanity.

      @SshreddderR I did not write "less beauty standards", but "less *pronounced* beauty standards". And men certainly do not contribute less to these than women, because supply follows demand. Whether beauty standards are universal is a moot point, I don't like women with necks extended to 40 centimetres, nor women with crippled mini feet, nor circumcised women, nor women with teeth filed into triangles, nor women with tattoos on their faces, and I don't like "Silicon Valley" either, but there are men all over the world who regard one or the other of these as an ideal of beauty. But actually I just wanted to point out a logical error here.

    Very funny interview.😊 One Brasilian says he loves it that it is so save in german streets. In Brasil you would be robbed in the streets. The next Brasilian says, he is missing brasilian „friendliness“. 😂😂😂

    Germany is a good country as a tourist beautiful cities and nature but to live there i don't want that they are too serious, too much discipline, but they are correct and polite but even politeness is desappearing little by little but each time i come back to belgium after having holiday in Germany i have more selfconfidence and i'm more patient but i appreciate my own country more when i come back to Belgium 🤔
