Northern Ohio. If it wasn't such a far commute, I would live there in a second.

The rudest people I have met were transplants on the other hand but they were a very small group. If you are looking for kind, caring , compassionate, and happy people who will help even a stranger then NC is for you! This is all from my experience of course!
NC has its share of *******s like any state. Unfortunately most of them seem to be in the state government at the moment. Hopefully some of the biggest ones will be voted out.

Also in Ohio I find people from the Appalachian region who have moved to Columbus to be incredibly kind, humble and genuine.

Hate to be "that guy", but I don't think you can correlate region with kindness. I'm from Southeast Philly and have met all sorts of people from all sorts of regions. In college, a lot of my friends have been from Western Pennsylvania. They seem very down-to-earth and relaxed, but hardworking as well. However, the nastiest people I've met in college have also been from Western Pennsylvania. One guy from Pittsburgh is extremely friendly encourages me to sit with him every time we meet in the cafeteria. Another guy from Pittsburgh loves to constantly mock me in conversation, until I broke off communication altogether when he started to get racist. I could bag on some rude people from my urban PA/NJ area too, but on the flip side, nobody can quite match the endearing friendliness of outspoken, brash Italian folks from NJ.

Every region has good and bad people, and if you keep open to socializing you WILL run into the good folks.

I do strongly believe that each region fosters different kinds of personalities (good and bad). For instance, a 'bad' person from Western PA might be that condescending, Type-A guy I mentioned earlier, while a 'bad' person from the west coast might be a stuck up, passive-aggressive hipster that looks down on everybody. Take a gander at this map from the American Psychological Association. It maps out various traits in the continental US.





Also, the person that listed Chester as a happy area..... I'm not quite sure about that. Everytime I visit Chester for a soccer game the entire police force is mobilized so the fans going to the stadium don't get shot passing through Chester.

Definitely agree with Minnesota being friendly, they don't say "Minnesota nice" for nothing!

Overall every place is friendly. If you can't find friendly people you may simple just need to look into the mirror and reevaluate yourself.

I think he probably meant Chester County or West Chester.

It would be interesting to see those maps broken down by county rather than state. A lot of these traits, while following a statewide trend, still vary significantly within the states. There are parts of Ohio that are "Temperamental and Uninhibited" compared to some of the "Friendly and Conventional" parts of New York State.
