I don't think so but, regardless, I didn't say that or - rather - that's an approximation of what I said that I wouldn't stand behind.
My original point is that US culture has a high tolerance for, nay, enjoys, a certain level of glitter. Everything is presented as being "the best", "amazing", "awesome".
French culture has just as much bragging, but the social codes for doing it are very different. Bragging is often done by being purposefuly understated in order to signal high standards.
I totally agree with this to be honest. Being from London but living in the US for five years in the past, the cultural difference with how the US likes to exaggerate everything and make it super awesome is funny and interesting. Bigger is always better in the US. I much prefer the ‘British reserve’ culture. Let things speak for them self. It might take longer but at least it’s organic growth which in my opinion is always better than bragging and shit marketing.
