In general, which of the 3 regions would you consider to be the fastest-paced: Pacific NW (Seattle, Portland)..Midwest (Chicago, Cleveland, Minneapolis)... South (Atlanta, Dallas). Or do you find the areas to be pretty similar in pace?

"Fast" pace as in people seem to be in a rush, fast drivers, impatience in daily situations, indifference between people, etc etc.

Big difference between rural and urban areas in all three regions. (Well, I'm not that familiar with the upper midwest so I'm making an educated guess there.)

Pretty hard to generalize the whole region. For instance, I'd consider Seattle a very fast-paced city (comparable to Dallas) but Portland is very much not. So, does that make the PacNW region "fast" paced? But frankly, if you take Seattle out of the equation, I think the PacNW is the slowest paced of the three.

This is between the Midwest and South; which both overall are about the same pace. Chicago being the most fast-paced out of the all though.

If the Upper Midwest (MSP-Milwaukee-Chicago-Detroit-Cleveland) were separate from the Lower Midwest, then I'd say we have the fastest pace. However, if we're talking about specific cities, then Chicago and Seattle would definitely be the fastest with Dallas rounding out the top 3.

Midwest (mostly basing it on the influence of Chicago), then Northwest, then south.
