  25. 25. SOME USEFUL TIPS  Don’t try to greet a Finn with kisses! Finns shake hands and make eye contact. Handshakes are brief and firm, and involve no supporting gestures.  The Finns are polite and respectful. They wait and stay at line with patience everywhere and in every situation, and wait for green at the light for cross over.  Don t talk too much or express feelings in public. Finns place great value on words, which is reflected in the tendency to say little and avoid unnecessary small talk. They are better at listening than at talking.9/27/2012 FINLAND COUNTRY PRESENTATION 25
  26. 26. SOME USEFUL TIPS  Finns drink coffee anywhere and anytime. More coffee per person is drunk in Finland than anywhere else in the world.  If you go to someone s home, a plant or flowers for the hostess or host is the norm. When entering someone’s home, you have to take your shoes off.  Do accept an invitation to a sauna. Having a sauna is something completely natural to Finns. There are 1.5 million saunas in Finland.  Finns love Karaoke!9/27/2012 FINLAND COUNTRY PRESENTATION 26
