Personality Traits by States

Hope this will still work, found in the paper in Sept.

For some reason I wasn't able to fix this so you could just click it, so please copy and paste in your browser and take a look at the state you live in. Is it right?

Also when I try it, it still doesn't take me the the place I want, so when you get to the first page, then double click the US map on the left side and let it open, then run your mouse over the state you live in to see if that's how you think the people in your state are.

Patty, I'm having trouble clicking and pulling up this site. Help. Does WSJ stand for Wall Street Journal? I'm going to go do a search now. Just yesterday John McCain's brother Joe McCain called Virginia a communist country. Can you believe that!!!!!!

I'm back. I still can't get to the original article but am finding pieces of it here and there. Each presidential candidate and vice-presidential candidate is from a state. How does this article define them?

Oh,I did find an interesting article by a CA geography professor who has created a 38 state map for the U.S. for the 21'st century. Here is site: http://www.city-data.com/forum/general-u-s/253349-50-states-38-states.html

Hope you can pull it up. Jack and I having been in all 50 states think that states do have personalities. Ohio is not Virginia and Virginia is not Missouri. Off to do another search.

Patty,

That was very interesting. I don't know what it all means, but, interesting anyway.

I had no trouble finding the article, just followed your directions and went right to it.
