为何都说英国人很高冷?

我想你这类亲身经历是产生在纽约或别的大都市,它是纽约、法国巴黎、纽约市、苏黎世或罗马帝国的缺陷。


在我长大了的地区(德比郡最偏远的农村地域),在村庄里跟每一个历经的人问好很一切正常,人们随便进出隔壁邻居(不锁上),随意找个话题讨论就能找话题。


大都市很反感轻易的与人相处。


美国广泛比其他国家更傲娇,但针对定居在华北地区的人而言这也很一切正常。

我也不知道你从哪里来,但我想我有点搞清楚你的问题——我今年初搬来纽约,以前我衣食住行在英国爱丁堡。在英国爱丁堡,我总觉得仿佛大家很友善,自然和纽约区别挺大。


我是美国人,在加拿大人们趋向于“积极主动主要表现出有礼貌”,我实际上去日本也衣食住行过,我觉得她们也在“有礼貌”这些方面比这里积极主动多了(例如,她们要很积极地欢迎您走入一家店面,随后马上了解你是不是必须协助这些)。自然,美国在许多 层面很傲娇,但我的确觉得通过最开始那层看起来“冷淡”(我觉得那只是是“腼腆”)的面具你能发觉大家還是很真心实意的。


因为你最吃不消的是消费者的工资待遇。在这儿的店铺或任何地方所有人都急切解决掉你,不愿意帮助,不容易问好或跟你讲话。我觉得在加拿大人们能非常好地寻找“友善”和“不越境”的均衡点。


但客观事实就是我不可以希望美国像人们國家一样,我只必须记牢在这儿要想办事或交友必须花大量時间,但我还是满怀希望地觉得一旦我确实在这儿交给了新朋友,那一定会是地久天长的盆友。

My guess is that you have gained that experience in London, or another large city. This is a common attitude to London, Paris, New York, Zurich or Rome.


Where I was brought up (in deepest rural Derbyshire), it was normal to say hello to everyone you pass on the village, we walked in and out of our neighbours' (unlocked) houses, and conversations were struck up at the slightest pretext.


Big cities are anathema to casual sociability.


The British are more reserved in general than some nationalities, but they are not unusually so for people living in a northern clime.

I don't know where you are originally from, but I guess I somewhat understand your question - I moved to London at the start of this year, and previously lived in Edinburgh. In Edinburgh I always felt as though people were quite friendly, though of course, London is very different.


I'm Australian. In Australia, we do tend to be "actively polite". I actually lived in Japan also and I think they too are more actively polite than here (in the sense that they must welcome you into a shop rather actively, they will ask you if you need help promptly, etc). Certainly, the UK is reserved in many ways, but I do think that people are genuine once you perforate that initial apparent 'coldness' (which is usually just reservedness, I think).


For me the most annoying thing is customer service. Here everyone is eager to get rid of you and not help you, not say hello or speak to you in stores/anywhere. In Australia I think we have a very good balance between being friendly and not overstepping the mark.


But the reality is that I can't expect the UK to be like it is back home. I have to just remember that it might take more time here to get things done, or to form a relationship. I am hopeful though that when and if I do form new friendships with people here, they will be the kinds of ones that last.
