If I was comfortable discussing this matter, I'd yell at you, and then go sit alone and brood.

I don't know if I'd really call it "hypocritical" of people to flaunt things that make them look good and dismiss things that make them look bad. Isn't that human nature?

Or maybe "state pride" is a better term? There's nothing wrong with being proud of your hometown, state, or country. That sort of pride helps bind members of a community together.

However, I do agree that it's good to be aware of one's flaws. I still wouldn't use the word hypocritical in this case though. As a native Minnesotan, it surprises me also that MN would be ranked as having a high number of dishonest people. But I won't deny it, because I don't know enough about other states to know how honest people in other states are. It's just surprising. I think people who doubt the list are just having trouble believing it, not being "hypocritical".

I think "hypocritical" would only apply if they question this yet insist the results of other surveys should be accepted without question.

That's exactly what they do.

If I were to judge all Clevelanders, I'd say they were might passive-aggressive based on your posts. Is that accurate?

I once left my brand new iPhone 5S in the bathroom at Mall of America and it was turned in to the visitor's desk. I wouldn't test that theory again, but that was pretty dang honest considering it was Mall of AMerica.
