The entire attempt to type countries or cultures is ludicrous. It really annoys me.

Okay, I live in the third most segregated city in the world, the primary ethnicities being Hispanic, white, black, and Hmong. I have a very close friend who is Autralian, and throwing all of the aforementioned arguements against this whole concept aside (and I do agree with these arguements, BTW), I don't see any similarities between the stereotypical Australian and the stereotypical Hispanic.

Some days its just not worth chewing through the restraints.
Firstly, it's more than just a slight generalisation to suggest that all people who belong to one culture will have a tendency towards the same personality type. Just because a culture or a nation favours certain attributes over others does not mean that all other personality attributes will be eliminated to the extent that all people in the said cohort are identical in personality.
However, if you're talking about cultural stereotypes, where everyone in a nation or culture is reduced to a single, cut-out figure, then I assume that types could be put to those.
I'm not sure about Hispanic culture, but in relation to stereotypical Australian culture, I would suggest ESFP as opposed to ESFJ. Being Australian myself, I notice that the local self-designated archetype centres around an extroverted, friendly and hedonistic individual of anglo-saxon origin (usually male, wearing a cork hat, holding a stubbie, and watching football) who eschews tradition and gives everything a go.
However, this ostensibly leaves out many facets of the Australian population, such as females, aborigines and does not take into account regional variations between the Australian states, or personal preferences, and thus is not particularly accurate when determining the personalities within a culture or nation as a whole
