Smaller Towns More Extroverted?

By June 18, 2012

Follow me on:

Recent research has suggested that people in smaller towns are more extroverted than people who live in larger cities. Researchers at PYCO, a marketing firm, analyzed publicly available data from a database of over 181 million Americans over age 18. What they found was that people from small towns may be more extroverted. Do you live in a large city or a small town? Do you feel that this is an accurate statement?

Residents of small towns are very distrustful of new persons in their town. Have their own little cliques. In a large city most residents are strangers to each other and more friendly. I live in a small city in the Midwest and have notices incoming Californians are very friendly.

I live in a large town that is very spread out, in AZ, and it has a lot of cliques, even though people are superficially friendly. I lived in Ann Arbor, Mi for many years and they are unfriendly and suspicious of newcomers.
