I know I did.
Long story short, researchers look at different attributes of different folks in different parts of the country. Cool interactive graphics are here.
Here's how New Hampshire is described:
- Extraversion: 50th out of 51 states-plus-D.C. Or, as I like to think of it, second in aloofness.
- Agreeableness: 30th.
- Conscientiousness: 44th.
- Neuroticism: 14th.
- Openness: 14th.
- Extraversion: 3rd out of 51 states-plus-D.C. Or, as I like to think of it, third most likely to give you a business card.
- Agreeableness 50th. Or, as I like to think of it, second most likely to pick a fight with you about politics or shove you on the Metro.
- Conscientiousness 40th.
- Neuroticism 31st.
- Openness 1st. I should have something funny to say about this, but I don't. Do you?
