As an introvert myself, I would say most of the cities west of the Mississippi is where the introversion builds up and the closer you get to the West Coast the more introverted everything gets. For example up in Portland, Seattle, and here in NorCal is probably where most of us introverts are located in the nation. IMO that's why I love it out west because it's more open minded and people don't tend to get in your personal life and business plus it's less judgemental too.

Good point. When I think of regional differences in the USA (generalizations, of course), I first factor in mountain ranges and major rivers. These landforms caused a huge divide in culture and how people conduct business. It's helpful to be aware of such differences if you are conducting national business in other cities.

Having grown up near St. Louis and moved increasingly westward (I am now in Seattle), I too noticed that people become more reserved and introverted the further West you go. It's almost comical. It's definitely nice to be protected from brashness and instrusion, but also harder to get to know people out here. People on the West Coast get spooked out easily when you ask them direct questions. Lol

Initial thought was Seattle. Then Portland. But really any major city will allow you to feel alone in a crowd.
