In opposition to what I have heard and experienced, I think Indonesians are as friendly as the rest of the asians are. They just get easily intimidated when you speak to them in English knowing that it is not so welcomed and used in the place regularly.. so they have not exercised the potential ability.
They are very cultural (which I admire the most) but not so open in adapting the global perspectives. They easily judge "strangers" just like what they do to each other (when one makes a "noise").
Apparently, it is the mutual trust that works, not one way.
They take pride of being your friend and you will feel the same. Once you are friends (*in genuine context) with them, you will be like a family.
