Central NJ is just a more suburban, less dense version of North Jersey.
It's still NJ with ties to New York.

South Jersey is NJ with ties to Philly.

Mercer and Ocean Counties are the only real overlap areas, where there are some ties to Philly but arguably more to NY.

Union county and Middlesex county north of the Raritan River are not a part of Central Jersey.

It's funny but when you live in that section you know exactly what that refers to but if you never lived there you might have no clue- even if you were just 30 miles outside of it.

Do people living in Edison consider themselves in Central Jersey?

I think south of the Raritan River is Central Jersey and ends at LBI then draw a line across the state.

That's pretty much how I see it, though I'm not sure I'd go that far south.
