What places do you think have the biggest identity crisis in the US?

For me:
Delaware (Northeast or South)
Maryland (Northeast or South)
Kentucky (Midwest or South)
Missouri (Midwest or South)
Texas (South or Southwest)
Northern California (Southwest or Pacific Northwest)

.....and the state with the biggest identy crisis.....

West Virginia (Where is it?)

Pretty much I'd agree with you on everything except KY. Ky always considers itself southern.

Based upon my experiences with people in various states I'd have to say Missouri and Nebraska.

I've always considered Northern California to be just "The West." Southern California is at times considered part of the South West, and extreme Northern California (with the rain forests and the Cascades) is at times considered part of the North West.

What is Texas? Just Texas? Or Idaho for that matter?

Oklahoma has by far the biggest identity crisis. Is it South, Southwest, or Midwest? Actually, it's all 3, so Oklahoma will always have trouble with it's location.

This is certainly true about Vermont and New Hampshire. They most definitely don't suffer from an identity crisis at least where the local population is concerned. Perhaps the rest of the country is confused about them.

Texas is more than just south or southwest. Is it Mexican and Midwestern too. The Panhandle reminds me nothing of the south or southwest every time I visit. May have been that way decades ago. Not now. That part looks and feels like Kansas.
