    Tania (Minas Gerais)
    Portuguese
    Eu acredito que agora eu dou 50-50, eu acho que ele, lógico, que ele preocupa com número. Eu tenho essa impressão do americano que ele é muito organizado, né? Ele sempre faz as coisas com antecedência, ele sempre trabalho com números, mas eu acredito que ele também, o norte americano, ele está preocupado com a relação com toda certeza. Eu sempre tive ótimas experiências com eles e eu acredito é a meio meio, números e o relacionamento com as pessoas.
    English
    I believe I would give this 50/50, I think that they, of course, they worry about numbers. And I have the impression that Americans are very organized, right? They always do things right away, and they always work well with numbers, but I also believe that North Americans are worried about relationships, this for sure. I have had great experiences with them and I believe it’s half and half, numbers and relationships in dealing with people.

    Tania - Minas Gerais
    Portuguese
    Eu concordo, concordo com essa afirmativa. A minha experiência eu percebi que as vezes o americano ele é meio indiferente com as outras culturas. Por quê que eu acho isso? Na minha percepção, ele sabe que aonde que ele for ele vai ter o inglês, ele vai ter uma pessoa, então ele não tem a necessidade de conhecer outra língua, e a cultura, para que é isso? Eu acredito que esse estereótipo, ele vale para o norte americano.
    English
    I agree, I agree with this statement. My experience is that I have noticed that at times Americans seem rather indifferent when it comes to other cultures. Why do I think this way? In my experience he knows that wherever he goes he will have English and that he will have people to take care of you, and so he doesn’t feel any need to know other languages, and other cultures, why would they? So I believe that this stereotype is valid for North Americans.
