Add Your Dot

Redditor SipTime is staying at a hostel, presumably in Japan. They keep track of how many people visit from different countries with this graph, in which you can clearly see the differences in cultures. That’s assuming that visitors put their own dots on the graph, but I can’t figure out how it happened any other way. See it full-size here.

Can someone explain why in the Germany section: 1) someone wrote an A-U chart after the first 5 columns had already been filled up and 2) started something else all the way over to the right, next to Italy?

Never mind, don't answer #2!

So, the Japanese are self-regulating and orderly. The Germans also want to be orderly, but feel that they must install an orderly infrastructure to act as a framework (for efficiency?). Americans and Aussies are (sorry, I hope not to offend) pretty similar. EXCEPT that Americans may travel in single-sex groups occasionally. Some Americans also kinda-sorta try to get their ducks in a row, but don't want to be too rigid about it, since they're on vacation. The French are unruly, but some attempt to set themselves as an example, vainly hoping that the others will get a clue.
