    Please post individuals or portrayals you consider being the archetype of your nation. A person you would consider a typical …. (enter your nation here).

    Remember, only post your nation, since posting others may be seen as a provocation.

    Typical Serb

    Ljubomir Tadić especially in this movie, portrays an archetypical Serb. (first 5 minutes of the movie are enough to get the picture)

    Lazar Ristovski, also managed to capture the main traits in this one scene. :)

    Are you talking physically, or in regards to personality?

    I don't know for Croatia since so many different regions but here goes how we kind of view others within our country ourselves:

    Zagorje region:
    Medium height, Blond or light haired, jolly, drinks alot, loud
    image

    Slavonia
    Short, darker-ligther hair, fat, jolly, eats a lot
    image

    Lika
    Largest Croats, manly, darker-ligther hair, strong, drinks a lot and eats a lot, highlanders thus a bit primitive
    image

    Dalmatia
    Tall height, slim, dark hair, drink only wine in small amounts and eats fish, lazy, flirts with women alot
    image

    Herzegovina
    Medium-Tall height, slim, dark hair and tan, ultra-Croatian because they don't live inside Croatia
    image

    and out of these most numerous in Croatia that make most of Croatian population are Zagorians, Slavonians and Dalmatians.
    I personally am a mixture of Zagorians & Slavonians (50%) and Likaners (50%).

    ;D

    If to speak about the image of typical Russian he could be Viktor Bichkov in the film Peculiarities of the National Hunt:

    There are more a regional stereotype. :)

    If you had to choose, which portrayal would be the archetype, a Croat would mostly identify with, regardless of region? Maybe some movie role, or similar.

    I just couldn't that's why i made regional stereotypes. There is no typical Croat in my opinion. If i would chose someone, then i would probably chose someone from my own Zagreb region because i am surrounded by such people but some Dalmatian would probably tell you otherwise then me.

    If i could describe most of Croatian Zagreb youth with one person today, it would be Stoka:

    STOKA | JA SAM ZAGREB [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

    that's like a prototype how most Purgers look and dress today. The ones that don't look like this usually ain't Purgers ;D

    this is how Dalmatians and Herzegovians that come to Zagreb look like and dress like
    image
    obviously not a Purger ;D

    for others that don't understand what Purger means, it means a real Zagrebčanec i.e. a real "native & authentic" at home individual from Zagreb.

    I don't think there is an archetypal Bosniak. The only thing I can think of is Muslim, tall, stupid (but thinks is an intellectual) and drinks. The closest think I can think of that resembles that is Damir Nikšić.

    A rather unusual name as well as surname, for a Bosniak. For me personally, Emir Hadzihafizbegovic and Enis Beslagic somehow portray the typical Bosniak in their movies.

    Apparently many Bosniaks use to live in Nikšić until the Montenegrins expelled them. Maybe that's where he got his name; ancestral city.

    What characteristics do you think make an archetypal Bosniak?

    I made a mistake, I meant a typical.

    As for the question, I don't know there sure are stereotypes but I am interested in self-percieved archetypes.

    Really, he could fit in a role of an US Marine with ease.

    For me Sergei Bodrov Jr., had that typical Russian appearance. :)
