You are Hungarian...
When you can swear for 5 minutes straight, with one breath, not using the same word, ever.
When you run around during Easter and pour parfum/water/soda over women’s heads and sing.
When someone says that Hungarian “is like Russian and all those other Slavic languages,” and then you have to go into great detail about the origins of Hungarian with a scolding history lesson.
When you understand cynism and sarcasm; you sometimes are cynical/sarcastic yourself.
When you are more creative in cheating then any other nationality.
