    everybody at shucker's is so nice.
    and the brooklyn oyster bar. swoon.
    I'm going to play devil's advocate and say that Vancouver is nicer, though. Of course, I have spent far more time in Vancouver than Seattle. I do like Seattle, at least I like Pike Place Market, and the many great bookshops and cafes. But...most people I know who've been to both say something like "I went to Seattle and thought it was great, but then I went to Vancouver and that was like a better version of Seattle!"

    I wonder why and how can a whole city of people be labeled as "Passive Aggressive", any thoughts?!

    That's....hmm. not a fair assessment. I think the retired hippie-vibe may have something to do with that.

    I lived in that area for a few years and I miss it. I found everyone tremendously friendly for the most part.

    I guess people forget about those WTO riots...heh heh

    it's pretty much an ideal. I bet a lot of the Indies and hipsters from Seattle would like to think of themselves as passive agressive, and some probably are, but it's become a hype more than a reality, per se. that's the problem with hip town.

    but still, Seattle is probably my favorite place in the continental US.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    I've visted twice (my uncle moved over years and years ago when he married an American lady). Everyone there I spoke to was really friendly. I loved it, and could see myself living there.

    I took the assertiveness quiz. I got "assertive", which is apparently an option as well.

    As far as people in Seattle being passive aggressive, some are I'm sure, but every state has passive aggressive people. Maybe the technological thing Seattle has going on, or the progressive mentality there, like San Francisco, attracts a certain type of personality in some cases, that maybe could be interpreted by some as douchey. But you're not going to find any shortage of people like that anywhere else. And some places without those kinds of people might have prevalence of other types to avoid, like rednecks or criminals (or in some scenarios, people who are both).

    So, maybe there's some truth...But really, there's plenty of passive aggressive people. The East Coast is certainly crawling with them, this I know from experience.
    A hero is someone who does the right thing without expectation of reward, just because it's the right thing to do.

    hahahahaha, Haphazard. You're awesome! That's what I was thinking. "Minnesota nice" is a great euphemism for "passive aggressive".

    Sparrow, I have lived in WA and MN, I would say Seattle is colder to outsiders but not passive aggressive. I would say that MN is the opposite.

    Yes, the millions who live in a city are all exactly the same attitude. Every, single, one of them.

    Sounds like a very rational and reasonable thing to think.

    Thinking cities have vibes and all that... Sounds like a very intuitive thing to think.
