Knowing some one's origin helps in initial interaction .. though exceptions are everywhere but it gives a kind of picture what and how we extend out conversation for eg people from europe tend to know about world other than their own country .. so you can expect wide range of topics during conversation .. with American people you have limited choices . 


we have a strong sense of belonging towards our own country , culture and religion and we adopt the general thoughts of society about other's which might have generated due to past good or bad experiences with other culture , people or religion. This strong sense of belonging towards our own people make us biased towards others

Accent gives away where one hails from! 
Sundy Mondy cracks me up!  Ofcourse you can tell where the southeners hail from and the same holds good for upper mid-west.  i love the Fargo- accent Smile & Scottish accent.

@ qt, i agree with you at the last statement and it sounds so sweet LOL LOL LOL

@ topic, yes and no. actually i dont ask people where they are from until something about them really makes me curious to ask them Tongue and until i know them well. it gets really irritating when some people(i wont mention which people) keep staring at you for a while and then inch closer towards you which can scare the hell out of you and then they ask where are you from and the moment they know that you are exactly not from the same place as they are, they ignore you. hello? whats the point of asking a stranger where you are from? very irritating, please stay away. one doesnt have to be of the same place, language etc to build a relationship. i have seen people coming out of their comfort zone and extending their hands of friendship even though they are not of the same place, language etc.

knowing where you are from in the first meeting is not very exciting but later knowing their originality etc can make the conversation more interesting, in a way it matters to some people but for some it doesnt make a difference. i am not trying to straddle the issue. IMO it shouldnt matter Tongue

I think I've faced coupla situations interacting with gora log initially when I came to UK. Well, they assumed I was a Moroccan when they saw me first(?!?!?!) n then they asked me where I was from and when I said I was from India...their first reaction was .."ooooh emotional and sensitive...and crazy about cricket" Confused Unfortunately all that is true, esp the last one Tongue but...somehow I think they figured out a way to deal with me for that period of time. Later we all became good friends and certain perceptions changed and some remained unchanged.

I dont know if its good or bad but I agree with Dewey, I do believe it happens to almost everyone and at times, does help you to kinda draw a rough sketch about that person in a brief moment. Later.. the person n his/her sketch might not match up or you can modify it afterwards, but its a start. Some take this concept a bit too far and start avoiding people and even going lengths to criticize them without even getting to know them. I think this is where it goes terribly wrong. Otherwise, I think its an instinct in humans, an attempt to suss out the person standing in front of you.

lol Di...my first trip was to Dundee in Scotland and I swear upon all the gods, I said to my friend " I thought they speak English in Scotland as well!" LOL LOL LOL Just couldn't get a single word from their conversations, and the steep tones and twists in their pronunciation! Oh god, that was hilarious! Well in the cities, you can still get what they saying, but going north, it really gets worse! But love it, that accent is amazingly sweet like their people,  I agree Smile

(man these disclaimers, am so concerned these days, kiss ko kya offensive lagey, unlike me lolsssss)

I like the Tu they use in Mumbai...lots of apnapan! Tongue in Delhi they will call you Aap and will eventually turn out to be your baap! LOL

Asking where someone comes from just gives a cue to start a conversation! Also to understand some of the sensitiviites of the person!
