Perception of Americans? Hard to say really, I can't say I've noticed a general opinion. There are people who are very critical and people who love America. Can't speak on behalf of the whole country

^My own perception is pretty different from my friends...they think you are all stupid

I don't subscribe to believing the stereotype, as a nation i think you guys are like a teenager, the collective social conscious is sorta still young...as individuals, i generally love you guys...i know you are not idiots or ignorant completely of everything outside America...the Americans i know are all great people, intelligent and knowledgeable...you are not all war mongers, just like every Irish person is not a terrorist...etc

Because we like U2... therefore, we are not the stereotypical Americans...

Seriously speaking, it is unfortunate, but in many cases I have seen the American stereotype not being completely unfounded. There are many, and I mean many, Americans who do not have a clue about what happens outside of the U.S. borders, who think that Buenos Aires means 'good morning' in Spanish and who believe that Rio de Janeiro is the capital of Argentina... oh, well.
