Venezuelan Stereotypes

It is hard to determine which are the Venezuelan stereotypes, because of the fact that I am Venezuelan. However, I decided to ask some American people, what they think about as, and they said that Venezuelans are very energetic, happy people and they always related Venezuela with Baseball. I realized that Americans does not have a lot of stereotypes about Venezuelans, however, if you ask for a bad stereotype, they always talk about politic things.

In Venezuela we are very nice people that always like to support who needs it, actually we are really energetic, in the terms of dancing and parties. It is important to mention, that, as well as with the American Stereotypes, in Venezuela we have a lot of people, from very different cultures that has different thoughts about life, and may be, are not as the common stereotypes.
Some generalization about Venezuelans could be that we usually do not follow the rules, for example in the streets, and driving. Venezuelan people, are disorganized, and in some cases very unpunctual. Nowadays, Venezuela is very related with the baseball, this is because we have a very strong baseball team, and in the aspects of football (soccer), we are not that recognized.
In the other hand, Venezuelan people, give a lot of importance to friendship, and when you have a friend, it is important to be by her or his side anytime, because, for as, truly friends, can be count with one han
Finally, I think that Venezuelan stereotypes, are nothing but American stereotypes, however, being in this country I could find some people that has similar tastes, and thoughts, as me, so this are just generalizations and stereotypes, about, may be, a majority of Venezuelans, which ones, however, has their only way of think and be.
