It seems odd to me, but many foreign languages feel like they have a whole personality or mood to them.

German seems angry, Japanese (formal Japanese anyway) seems insecure and nerdy, French seems snobby.

It's not the people that speak the language really, in fact most people I know that don't fit their language stereotype, but the languages themselves just feel like that to me. Are these pretty standard, or do people have other interpretations? There's probably some technical term for this idea.

Obviously, as English is my native language and everyone around here speaks it, I have to such stereotype for it. Any suggestions? (heh, my guess would be either "lazy" or "stupid")

If everyone spoke every language, I'd probably use different languages to help convey the mood of my message.
