what is the character of the British?

To other Europeans,the best known quality of the British, and in particular of the English,is "reserved".A reserved person is one who does not talk very much to strangers,does not show much emotion,and seldom gets excited.It is difficult to get to know a reserved person:he never tells you anything about himself,and you may work with him or her for years without ever knowing where he lives,how many children he has,and what his interests are.English people tend to be like that.
