8. Canadian mentality

The main points of the Canadian character are a great love of life, British restraint and high self-control. Canadians are quite different from their southern neighbors - the Americans, and closer in spirit to the people of Britain. They have a special English humor and the inimitable style of the islanders.

The Canadian believe that he must strive for complete self-sufficiency and independence. Therefore, first of all, he considers himself a person, an individual, and not a member of a family, work collective or social group.

Success for a Canadian is expressed, first of all, in a good salary, own house, a prestigious car, etc. Only through hard work, Canadians have managed to achieve a high standard of living and make their country one of the most favorable places in the world to live.

In Canada, all segments of the population respect money and position in society. An ordinary Canadian, both a child and an adult, knows that the one who drives a luxurious Lexus did not steal money, but earned it. Hence the honor to work, honor to education, hence the norms of behavior.

A healthy sense of humor and the ability to laugh at yourself, at your habits and mentality is an integral part of the psychology of Canadian advertising.
