I also think Hawaii has more Pacific Islanders than California, but with their low population CA might edge them out.

Why the OP hate on Washington State? The state, the 2nd largest population in the west, is much more than grunge and meth. But perhaps you were trying to make an absurd point as to perceptions. If so, OK, but that perception is completely off-base.

Classy is an attitude. Being rich and "educated" doesn't make one classy and being poor and dumb doesn't make one not classy.

I'm married to an upstater. She and her family are the antithesis of high strung. Not to mention I've met a lot of folks in Tampa from around the upstate (Albany, Rochester, Syracuse...). Aloof, reserved, sometimes sullen, yes. Not high strung. That's the alphas in downstate.

I would agree 100% that Connecticut is the least friendly. New Jersey a close second.

Don't sleep on Florida in regard to the laid back attitudes. Every crazy story (that isn't made up) you hear about in the news involves someone who transplanted here from somewhere else. Most of the natives I've met here are chill as hell.
WTF do you mean we aren't friendly in NJ???

And yes, upstate NY is a whole different planet from the city and metro area.

I always thought of Washington as having endless forest, as well as producing serial killers.

But then, my cousin moved to eastern WA about ten years ago, and I was surprised when I saw the pics of where she lives. It looks desert-ish, with big rock formations.

I don't think she's encountered any serial killers, either.

Most High Strung--yes, NY. I think Upstaters aren't as high strung as the Boroughs or Downstate, but they're still some of it in their DNA for sure. Someone said Upstaters are "reserved." I think so. Who'd think of a NY'er as reserved? We're busting stereotypes here on CD forum. Hehe. NY'ers are the funniest people you'll ever meet anywhere. NJ--as I remember it, as a kid, fast paced and they drive crazy. I guess they've got to because everyone else does.

Laid Back--Arizona and NM, yes. "Whatever" is their motto and it'll be yours if you move there. Not that "friendly" per say in Arizona, but laid back and don't fret type of vibe. Southern Calif., too. San Diego felt a lot like parts of AA to me. I think all of the West as rather laid back compared to the East, NE or SE. Exception are larger metros in California prob not that laid back.

Friendliest--heard Tennessee is very friendly, but can't say personally, Carolinas are polite and friendly, small talk is important. The Texans I've known are very friendly, but I've only met relocated ones. I've known some Louisianians and they are friendly, too.
