AMERICAN PSYCHE

Today I was speaking with my neighbour Loy ... we discussed about the differences between European and American people ... I think we spoke for half hour and at the end he came out with this brilliant catch phrase I never heard before ... Americans buy things they don't need, with money they don't have, in order to impress people they don't even know ... that left me speechless. That is exactly what I had in mind. Yes. This phrase explains a lot about the American psyche. Accurate but pretty scary, though.

That sounds like a pretty accurate assessment to me about a majority of people here :)

So people psyche can be judged by their consumption habits only. Accurate but pretty scary conclusion.
