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"
this was true in the fucking 1950's. not anymore. everyone is a transplant and has a universal accent. there are some areas that are still behind the cuff but i guarantee you wouldn't be able to the difference between someone from omaha and someone from provo
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.
>>1071056 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.
>>1071056 >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.
>>1071047 >http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2013/12/20/sunday-review/dialect-quiz-map.html 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.
>>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.
>>1071056 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.
