3) What are some typical Norwegian values?

I think justice is important, because we are all human, and we have the same value.

5) Where does your values come from?
My values come from my family and my friends. Consider the similarities and differences between Norwegian and

American values?
Every country has values. Some of the values are in several countries.

In Norway, we have Janteloven, justice, freedom, equality, democracy and we follow the constitution.

America has most of these values, but they also have for example friendliness, faith and hospitality.

In Norway, we don’t invite strangers in to or home, every child does not think they are going to be for example the king, and it’s harder to make friends.

We won’t be friends with everyone. Most of the friends they make in America are not friends they have the entire life.
