I stil managed to get 8 out of 10 in the quiz though. Maybe that's why!

Sigh, got 9 points out of 10, too... Sep 11, 2006

I always considered myself a "world citizen", but 9 out of 10 points got me back into reality. I'm more German than I thought...

"More than half ain't bad" Sep 11, 2006

I was told, upon having scored 6/10. I am proud of having answered correctly all the questions related to character traits, though. What can be more important than the human factor when it comes to survival?

Not bad... Sep 11, 2006

"Not bad. If you care to immigrate, I'm sure integration into Germany would be no problem."

8 out of 10. Not bad indeed for someone who "remigrated" over 20 years ago!

Don't despair, Sylvie. As long as you don't start wearing Lederhosen and dancing Schuhplattler you may still hope!icon_smile.gif
