MooPig Personality Division :: "We tend to cluster around people who act the same as us."

Texas is like the Eastern Seaboard
mashed articles by Pat Darnell  |  Oct 30, 2013  |  Bryan TX

Looking at America in psychological terms can be convoluted. Understanding of the human brain is still in its infancy and its function is misunderstood by many. The article "assesses people across five key personality traits--openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism." These "traits" are observable, but not fully understood either, any more than the openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism is understood in cows. But we must push forward, and the article takes in account of what makes us different and what makes "likeness" between people; if indeed we "instinctively" somehow group with others who are most like ourselves.

After all cows do "herd" with other cows, and not with gazelles, right?

There Are Three Americas Hiding Inside Our Country--Which Do You Live In? | Co.Exist | ideas + impact: "There are many ways of dividing up America: Red state, Blue state, Rust Belt, Bible Belt, Sun Belt, Stroke Belt...the list could go on. We're defined by our regional economies, voting patterns, stereotypes, geographies, and a lot else besides. These maps do something different: They look at America in psychological terms. They assess people across five key personality traits--openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism--and show us where the distribution falls.

Led by Jason Rentfrow, at the University of Cambridge, the analysis is based on a total of 1.5 million online surveys conducted in five batches. The researchers then cluster traits together, with the darker colored areas indicating higher correlation. The work is published in the latest issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology."

" ... Obviously not everyone in each region fits the profile. We're talking statistical averages here. Still, the maps offer another lens through which to look at the big divisions in the U.S., and place several states outside the norm. Texas, for example, is less in the South and more in the East, which may be news to some. ... "
We find out that Texas is both "unfriendly and unconventional." Texas is neither "relaxed nor creative." Texas is "temperamental and uninhibited."
From the article: " ... In Cluster 3, the psychological profile of the region is defined by low Extraversion, very low Agreeableness and Conscientiousness, very high Neuroticism, and moderately high Openness. This particular configuration of traits depicts the type of person who is reserved, aloof, impulsive, irritable, and inquisitive. (The work is published in the latest issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. Ben Schiller. October 18, 2013. LINK) ... "
