I'm from the Midwest and I kinda feel Northeastern at heart - progressive, interested in other cultures and languages, educated (and from an educated background), anxious, interrupt people a lot, get bored easily, don't need open space or a big apartment, probably will not be married until at least 35.

Wouldn't you rather have your UM and MSU in Ann Arbor and East Lansing than in Oxford and Starkville?

another way of looking at it is that one could move from the South to Michigan to escape all those damned yankees moving down there.

I’m a Southerner with the heart of a Northerner as well. I keep mine on the shelf above my desk in the study.

Im from the south and feel more at home pretty much anywhere else, especially the upper midwest.

I'm the same way. Grew up in the South but feel most at home up north.

I was born and raised in the Midwest but once I saw the west I was hooked -- at age ten. Funny how my parents couldn't see the logic of my pleading arguments that we move. So I ended up a sullen Midwesterner. Then life happened - wife, job, kid, school, friends -- and it all got in the way of moving. Finally, at age 65 I made it and never looked back. Traitor to the Midwest? Not hardly... I made my escape.

The brain is a complex thing so live where you're comfortable. As mentioned, be grateful you live in a country that allows you such freedoms.

I currently live in TX but am a Northerner at heart since that is where I am from. I really do not like TX. I could see myself in the Midwest or some Western state.

More Type A than Northeastern but we conflate much in this country.
