    Default Seattle Stereotype- Passive Aggressive?

    So I was born and raised in Seattle, a lot people from out of town like to say that people here are Passive Aggressive.

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

    I don't know, I just visited Seattle for the first time last month. I really liked it on the west side of the cascades. It's very pleasant. But as for the people, I didn't really interact with too many of them. It was the biggest city I've ever been to, so it was a bit different for me to see the fast pace of it all, but over all I didn't notice a lack of manners in the people.

    Maybe people are looking for information to label the natives of Seattle and that's the only negative thing they could see that was common?

    That's just what the people who have never been to Minnesota say.

    So I took a quiz:

    The Assertiveness Quiz

    You can score Passive, Passive Aggressive, or Aggressive. I scored as "Agressive"!

    I once saw a 400 lb naked woman shouting at the top of her lungs in downtown Seattle. trumps all homeless experiences i've had. even NO

    i'd say y'all are pretty aggressive

    this goes without mentioning how many serial killers came from there

    I've never heard that about Seattle. I have heard it about Minnesota, and it can be true. It's the shadow side of Minnesota Nice. But we're not all passive agressive, either.

    Here in California , we think everyone and everything cool comes out of Seattle. We have this idealized image of the place.

    It could be true. I'm also from the Pacific Northwest, but Canada - Victoria (Vancouver Island). I know that in Vancouver at least, people have somewhat the reputation of being suspicious and not very friendly. I wonder if that could lend itself to passive-aggression. I think I can be a bit passive-aggressive myself!

    People are passive aggressive everywhere, not just Seattle.

    No locale is devoid of passive aggressive people.

    Being passive aggressive affords cowardly people the chance to be a douchebag while taking on very little risk.

    Once Seattle sacrifices all their passive aggressive people to the Rain Zombies, it will be a shining city of light.

    man i love seattle. spent a lot of time there.
    i love the vibe, and i guess that has to
    do with the people.

    man and the food. the food!
    everybody at shucker's is so nice.
    and the brooklyn oyster bar. swoon.
    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.
