    result - 4

    Etiquette

    1) remove your shoes before entering your own house-hai (i do this a lot, i tend to walk round the house in my "stocking feet" or bare feet a lot ^_^;)
    2) slurp your ramen-hai (often actually, i'm going through a chicken ramen phase, i eat it a lot, yet i sometimes change to the prawny seafood packs)
    3) excuse yourself all the time even when you are not wrong-iie
    4) bow (even slightly) when greeting or seeing someone off (in formal situations)-iie (i want to for some odd reason, yet i don't have the confidense to)

    6) buy omiyage for your colleagues, friends or family when you go somewhere (even for a few days)-iie (;_; erm, what omiyage?)
    7) nod or make little sounds agreement showing that you are listenning to someone-hai (another thing i do without realising ^_^;)
    8) avoid teling people directly what you think-hai (but thats just me being me, yet i tend to grump to other people, mainly family later on)
    9) avoid putting soap or foam in your bath-hai (seeing as i only hae a shower, lol)
    10) refrain from eating in the street or while standing/walking.-hai

    result - 7

    Cultural adaptation

    2) bear Japanese TV programmes-haii (so much that i get bored with whats on the digital tv)
    3) ride a bicycle with an umbrella in one hand-iie (sounds dangerous)
    4) sit in "seiza"-hai (until my legs start dying of lack of circulation, its usually when i'm engrossed in drawing-30 mins or sometimes a full hour)

    result - 3

    Do you :

    5) like J-pop-hai! (and V-kei, and rock)
    6) like kabuki-iie (i prefer Takarazuka ^_^;)
    7) read manga-hai (only shoujo & some BL)
    8) like sumo-iie (can't be healthy to be that size O_o)
    9) like everything that is cute-hai! (i like kitty-chan & lolita fashion)
    10) like "onsen" (hot spring)-iie (too social for my tastes, plus i'm not even confident to go to the pool anymore, i'd bare too much flesh O_O;;)

    result - 3

    ^_^ soo..

    conclusion - 7 (all the "hai" answers)

    10 for food

    8 for ettiquette because I tend to tell people EXACTLY what I think of them and I love my bubbly baths

    Learning to slurp raman took some practice though but please don't ask how I picked up the habit of bowing on the phone 0.0

    Cultural adaption

    Cultural adaptation
    9 because I cannot bear to like everything that is cute.

    Total 27

    However, I would think that my general attitude renders me about as Japanese as Queen Victoria

    I don't know what a seiza is, and don't think I could ride with an umbrella in one hand. Being a native Seattleite, I never use an umbrella! Also, I think the no eating or drinking while walking thing is stupid, and some of the younger people do too (I've seen quite a few people do it in Shibuya).

    My bed used to be a futon, I watch Japanese shows all the time, I can't ride a bike, I sit in seiza all the time, I love J-pop, I've seen a few kabuki, I read manga like crazy, I like sumo, and my room is filled with random cutesy things.

    I am 16/30. I haven't tried a lot of Japanese things.
