Are we defined by where we live?  We all know the stereotypes: New Yorkers are loud & rude, Southerners are genteel, the West Coast is full of hippies.  How much of it is true?  The Wall Street Journal has a map up based on a questionnaire that attempts to answer just that question.  The results may surprise you.  A lot of the stereotypes seem to be true on a certain level.

I’m curious.  More people are transplants these days it seems as society become more mobile and people follow their job.  The metro Atlanta area where I live is a great example of this.  I wonder how much of this is shaped by the cultural environment?

What do you think?  Are you surprised by this survey?
