Austria is home to Sissi, Empress of Austria and Franz, Emperor of Austria. Yodeling from a top of a mountain wearing Lederhosen (traditional knee-length leather pants), that is how one pictures a typical Austrian. Although these stereotypes are being maintained for image reasons, they are usually far from being true.
Austrians are warm and loving people and they are considered to be very cordial and diplomatic. They find a polite way out of an invitation instead of straight forward declining it. In some places, also a non-graduate will be addressed with titles such as “Master”, “Counselor”, “Estate Owner” or “Honorary Consul”.
