I've met both rude and friendly. More friendly ones, though, and they've been a joy to get to know.

I'm an NC native and I think it boils down to how newcommers in general present themselves here. If you come here open and friendly, you'll get the same back and will be welcomed. But if you come here (as some here say, "Actin' stupid") saying, "Well, this is how we do it in NJ/NY/CA/ect", act rude, treat us like idiots, try to change the area/who we are, and all of these things, it wont' go over well at all. It would be the same if we relocated to your area acting that way. Sure, there are a very few who are still hung up on the Civil War thing and a few who are rude and don't like any newcommers. But you'll find people like that in every region of the nation.

But, by in large, we embrace those who come here. I mean, NC/SC are great places to live!!

I am not Southern, but live part time in Florida so my opinion may or may not count here.

Of coarse this is a generalazation because we know not everyone is the same.

The born and raised Cali folks are tend to be more down to Earth.

The folks that are not from there and move out there I have found to be a little more rude. Kind of like 'I have arrived!'

Without meeting a Californian, one would say they are rude and snobbish. For the longest time I bet a Californian couldnt point NC out on a map, "why do I need to, California is all there is." A Laguna Beach snob or an LA thug.

When I was growing up, thought everything was in California. Now it seems people are leaving the state in droves.

I've known lots of Californians, good and bad (mostly good). My impressions are that Californians are...

... fun-loving and personable.
... more likely than not, bisexual.
... multiracial.
... shallow.
... vegetarians and/or health nuts
... a bit whiney.

Oddly enough, I haven't known Californians to be too arrogant, but the Washington Staters I knew certainly were ("My family had a maid! My house has six bedrooms! My car cost half a mil!" Who cares?).

Heaven forbid! I can't believe people think some of these things of Californians. I am one and will always be one even though I live in the South. I'm a Yankee to the southerners. That just so cracks me up, I can't help but laugh at them.

People are snobbish, rude, arrogant, bi-sexual, and pathetic everywhere. Grant it, California is no longer like it was when I lived there in the 50s, 60s, and 70s. It's a shame, but then again, this whole country is not the same as it was in those decades.

Mississippienne, you should hear how the people in Dallas and other parts of Texas as well talk about their material things. Even the ones that live in podunk have to have stuff! I guess it's a status symbol or something. My pool, my million dollar home, my children's private school, the country club, my $500 gown, the expensive restaurant, the Mercedes or Lexus, etc. A bit pretentious, I presume, like the ones from Washington state of which you speak. I have a friend in WA and all she thinks about is her money. I'm afraid some people wouldn't have much self-esteem unless they have the big bucks. Oh well, I'll never know.
