Seattle (visited 4 times) - Veiled "friendliness". Not really blunt from my experiences. Definitely pretentious, but not to the level of SF. Laid back.

Boston (lived in Cape Cod a year and a half and went to Boston very regularly) - Definitely friendlier than SF and SEA. Though Liberal and not much political diversity, more accepting than SF and not hostile towards differing points of view like SF. Bluntness, yes, but not to an extreme. Relatively friendly. I never sensed an air of pretentiousness. Acceptance depends on area and neighborhood.

Chicago (visited multiple times) - My favorite city on the list and one of my favorite in the nation. I've found them very friendly. Acceptance of others depends on area and neighborhood, but more so than Boston. Can be blunt, but not in an insulting way. Though there is pride in the area, never sensed pretentiousness.
I agree with everything.. although I like Boston better than Chicago.

Well I think we've found our Bostonian.

I think it's safe to say that all those cities have hard working people. None of those places are exactly cheap to live in.

I don't think Bostonians are conservative. I think some of your descriptions are kind of insulting.
