What about a foreigner (like me) who happens to speak Swedish? Would you treat that the same as a Swede or would you adapt extra strongly?
That would depend on your (perceived) proficiency. If you spoke native-like Swedish, you'd fall into the "Swedish category". If you spoke with an accent, you'd fall into the same "foreigners' category" as if you spoke Norwegian with an accent, and I'd adopt my language, consciously or unconsciously, according to your level.

When you smile like silly at the typo and want to adopt a language too.

when in the course of reading an article on wikipedia, you can't resist experimenting with the list of languages on the left, and spend more time trying to read the article in 6 languages than in your native language.

When you spend some extra time in the shower, just because you can't resist reading the back of the new shampoo label in the languages provided.

That's me. I use either the English or the Spanish one and I'm increasingly tempted to visit German or Arabic versions, too.
