Romanians come among the first European peoples when it comes to the interest they pay to their own behavior. Still the perception of other Europeans on Romanian behaviors is rather neutral, a new GfK study shows.

The study, produced by GfK Custom Research Worldwide for Wall Street Journal Europe, is based on investigations in 20 European countries and the United States.

It shows the US people is considered the worst behaved and that the French and the Brits are seen as the best behaved in Europe.

Citizens of Western European countries included in the poll generally named they own people as the best behaved. Belgians lead the pack in this regard, with 39%, followed by the Swiss and the Austrians. But the situation is different in Central and Eastern Europe, where more people said the English and the French show the best behavior.

Still, only 6% of Romanians are proud with their good manners.
