What are some East Coast/West Coast stereotypes?
>>
West is chill. Oregon is fit and outdoorsy. Washington is super hipster. Northern Cali is more chill/less superficial. Southern Cali is faster paced.

East coast is all about time in the bigger cities. Machismo is a bigger deal. Jersey has the bros. Massachusetts and around have the grungy fishermen/blue collar workers.

East Coast= Hardened liberals that are more concerned about income distribution, more "old school" mentality, colder personalities, wears darker colored clothing.

West Coast= Touchy-feely liberals that are more about human equality, more "new age" mentality, bubbly personalities, where's lighter colored clothing.

East Coast: they think their part of the country is the best, but get mad because the West Coast disagrees.

West Coast: they think their part of the country is the best, but get mad because the East Coast disagrees.

Apparently, they believe close proximity to salt water makes you better than other people. Under this theory, people living in Israel (Dead Sea) and Utah (Great Salt Lake) are God-like.

I'll give you loud, but Americans have the most nobel prizes and Olympic medals of any country.

all the east coast west coast stereotypes are bullshit. i've lived in both places and every faggot says something like, "yeah i totally could tell you're not from here" or "dude, no way. you totally seem like you're from here. i guess that's why you came"
>>
>>1071034
Nope. You can definitely tell where someone is from in the USA. Plus if the person sounds like a touchy pansy than you can just about guaranteed they are from West Coast.

NorCal/SoCal/Vegas-->Philly/Maryland. TRAUMATIZED after coming out here. I know others who cried everyday cuz even minor social interactions were so RUDE compared to us suburban softies from cushy upper-middle class SoCal suburbia. SoCal "Can I get a cup of water please?" = Philly "Gimme cup of water!" They think you're an unconfident pussy asking to get taken advantage of, asking to be treated like a bitch, you have to fight for everything and display toughness, the "machismo" another poster referred to.

East Coast: more suspicious of others' intentions, confidence/arrogance (i.e. intentionally not walking out of the way on sidewalks), likely influence of urban black culture in East Coast cities. Cares about status and prestige are about social standing (what you do for work, what Ivy League university do you go to, etc.). Ppl are more about their HUSTLE, cuz if you don't hustle out here, you're gonna freeze to death in the winter. Limited space/resources with higher population/density = more aggressive/competition/fighting for everything. ALSO, East is much bigger on IN-GROUP VS OUT-GROUP. Are you part of their social class, their business school, their club/activity, their race, etc. On the West Coast ppl are more open to others of different backgrounds (racial, geographic, whatever) but on the East Coast ppl are more into huddling into their own groups (think about it, ppl historically had to go home to their tight knit communities/families to survive the winters). Race is a bigger deal out East. "I'm an Italian girl so blah blah blah" "I got that from my Irish roots blah blah blah"--I wonder what they think about Asians and blacks. Racism is definitely stronger out here but just not said. Out West we'd joke about it but deep down more accept each other.

West Coast: more open to strangers/ppl, more "naive". Cares about status/prestige are more about looks/fun/cool. Less traditional views of ppl cuz richest guy in the room could be a funky tech nerd.

Being out East has definitely toughened me up. Now when I go back West I'm *that asshole* that jaywalks while everyone else waits patiently for the WALK sign, etc.

But I fucking hate the East Coast and what it has turned me into. I'm graduating medical school in a few months and going back West.

There is literally nothing good about the East. Ppl out here are fighting for scraps due to limited space/resources/hot women/etc., it's so much more competitive for a tiny loft or a girl that wouldn't even turn heads in LA, etc. etc.

No wonder Ted Cruz thinks NYC ppl are rude and arrogant--that's just how East Coast city societies are, because you got a lot of poor miserable chronically-unfulfilled ppl crammed into old infrastructure.
>>

>likely influence of urban black culture in East Coast cities

Blacks are a factor, but the East Coast has never recovered from the immigrant waves of the 1900s. The worst of old poor Europe migrated in and has left these terrible behaviors and attitudes. The Western US doesn't have the same old world charm and for a long time was filled with superior pre-1900s immigrants.
>>
>>1071060

I was going to quote what you said, but then i continued to read and EVERYTHING you said is stupid. You are only going back west because your a sour, racist cunt who probably failed med school.

P.S. you quoted Ted Cruz, we 're glad your moving out

You can tell the difference, there is no universal accent and there are many regional words/terms/phrases that are used more than others.

Go to Boston, Norfolk, New Orleans, Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles... then tell us more about the universal accent. Everybody doesnt sound like the people on TV.

If you live on the east coast, the best way you can brag to someone is to say how you left the east coast to visit somewhere nice. That pretty much influences everything.

The immigrants from Europe had to hustle and move to feed their families. Most so-called polite Southerners don't understand this. Nut up or shut up.

Neither are as good as NE Ohio. North Coast Best Coast.

>>1071056
also don't put that weird philly maryland zone on the entire east coast. South of richmond you would not encounter it and it dies off somewhere in Connecticut. But its just like any other big city.

She lives in Nevada. Well that makes more sense. While I was in Arizona, I saw her in just a regular newspaper ad. I forget what regular product it was, but I was stunned they would just up and use some eastern european porn star.

the great lakes speak normal and enunciate properly.

East coast talk like they have clised head injuries. Same with Chicago.
South/texas cant speak for shit.
West coast states have a surfer/homosexual accent.

No, you mean the Midlands accent. Especially southern Iowa and some of Nebraska, of all places, sound the most blandly American.
