I am German and English on my Mom's side and English and Irish on my Dad's side. So I am one quarter German, half English, and one quarter Irish. Nonetheless, I ascribe 90% of what I am and what I do to either my German background or my Irish background.
As I never wear socks with sandals and never would, I don't tend to attribute any of my character or behavior to being of English descent.
