Welcome,

Very often when I am discussing with many people abroad, concept of "slavic soul" appears. Such a soul is supposedly common to all Slavs. It's true that usually on conferences I do like talking with Czechs or Slovaks better than with French -- but what it is, this strange "Slavic soul"?

For me, personally, I think it's
1) hospitability
2) liking good parties (singing, drinking and dancing together)
3) liking to argue and to quarrell (as in proverb: "where there are two Poles, there are three opinions". Also I've noticed a lot of Poles and Russians seems to like to argue just for the sake of pleasure of arguing)
4) some kind of liking the extremes: we are always the best or the worst, without shades
5) Melancholy - I am not sure about this one, but a lot of Poles agreed with me (though not all). Sometimes I just would want to go to the forest and howl to the moon, full of the feeling I cannot explain. The sudden rush of melancholy.

Ladies and Gentleman, what's your opinion?

I am a little suspect because I am partly Slavic myself and consider myself as a Soviet.

The Slavic soul for me is

a. agreed, loving fun and parties
b. being interested in culture and generally, sport
c. being direct and saying what you think
d. having little time for idiocy, stupidity and insolence
e. emotion, which is not afraid to come out in tears, or melancholy, indeed:flag:

For me it's -

* `Bigger than Life' personalities - very charismatic - not all but more than most people.

* Humor

* Independent thinkers

* Zest for life and devotion to family, duty, country

* Belief in a higher Being

* Downside - sometimes volcanic temper, jealousy

Sorry, but THIS sounds very English to me...:eek:

( Besides, I 've never heard of such thing as "slavic soul"
"Mysterious Russian soul" - yes, but not "Slavic" sorry to say...)

Serbs get along with Russians very well - friends for one thousand years - never fought. So maybe there is something to it.

To `Traits of Slavic Soul' I would add - Generosity.

Slavic soul is all opposite to degenerate western world, slavic soul hates injustice and materialism. All slavic people do not have slavic soul, some become westernised degenerate materialistic animals. Today, slavic soul is only real manifestation of aryan spirit.

The language is surprisingly similar too I must notice - Serbian to my understanding sounded very much like the version of ancient Russian.

The family names are very similar - many Russians have names ending `ICH' (son of) - which would indicate family/tribal bloodlines. Many Serbs also have names ending `OVICH' (Russian-Serb ending) Such as Popovich, etc.

Noble spirit which creates and destroys civilizations. Aryan=noble.
Spirit which tends to ideals and tradition, and not toward the matter and money.
There is no more real ideals in west, only in east. There is no more tradition in west, only perverted "modern man" and gays.
I think only Russia can save west from total spiritual degeneration.
