Americans, Danes, and Japanese Are The Paragons of Moral Virtue – All Other Nationalities Are Reprobates Destined for The Fires of Hell

The study, published by an academic from the University of East Anglia, found that people’s honesty varied significantly, and 1,500 participants from 15 countries were tested for dishonest behaviour.

Participants were asked to flip a coin and say what the outcome was in an online survey, with a monetary incentive to say that it landed on heads. Any set of results higher than 50 per cent for a country were assumed to hold an element of dishonesty.

      Bikini models are the very soul of virtuous, otherwise they would be starkers!

    Not in the least surprised to learn that Turks, Chinese and Indians are the most dishonest peoples. I was raised in Canada, which has corner stores and variety stores and gas stations, so I know all about the dishonesty of Chinese and Indian merchants. I was briefed about Turkey and Turkish honesty early on when I worked for the federal government and had to spend some time in Turkey. The same briefing also covered off the Roma. Words were not minced. It was a different, and far less politically correct, time.

  • What about Canada? In my personal experience, about the same as Switzerland and Denmark. But times may have changed.

    • The Butterfly

      Canadians haven’t changed, but the country is now full of people who aren’t.

      I would assume that they would have done as well as their southern neighbors.

    So much for ever looking at the supporting data.

      I think the data stands for itself without any outside support required.

    • Lol.

    No surprise the Chinese are dishonest. Anyone who has worked with them for a long period of time will tell you how greasy they are.

    I’m also not surprised the Japanese scored as the most honest. Lying about a coin toss Would probably be an act most consider beneath them.

    • Actually, in my experience, Chinese are not that dishonest (I’ve been to HK and China). Much worse are the Arabs (and other peoples that I will not name). The Chinese have a weakness – gambling. Tossing a coin for them would be akin to gambling, and lying in that context akin to bluff! 😉

      • Alain

        I agree based on personal experience. It also depends on whether the Chinese tend to follow traditional Chinese culture (honesty is imperative) or those following communist values. I know for a fact that in Japan dishonesty is detested. Arab culture tends to cultivate dishonesty as being admirable, certainly when it comes to dealing with non Muslims.

    China 0.55
    India 0.47
    Turkey 0.61
    All major source of migrants to Canada. Turkey being the only mohammedan state in the survey, I’ll count it as representing the whole islamic world.
    It is a fact that the third world people have less virtues than the western civilized people.
    Some people may call me racist/bigot but this is the reality and it’s going to be the future of Canada, unless we stop this mindless immigration.
