At first I thought that this survey was a little extreme, but then I thought about it as a Greek. I compared my own feelings (as a Greek-American, not even a Greek in Greece) to other European cultures and my own thinking was, "Yeah, we are definitely better than all of them. We have a richer culture, deeper history, more accomplishments." So I guess this survey really does make much more sense to me.
Did you ever think what it was like in the WWII days when people were stationed in foreign countries? I never thought much of it but if you really get down to the finer details, you had tens of thousands of men living in other countries that have no idea what life and culture is like there. It could leave a lot of awkward encounters if you don't know what the people were like.
