Actually, that is only partialy correct. What you are talking about is NOT Northerners, but rather Northeasterners. They are not the same.
Yes, it is a generalization. There are some really nice people in the Northeast, but as a general rule, the EXTREMELY UPTIGHT tend to dominate that area.
I work as a stockbroker and am on the phone with people in New York almost every day. I know what you mean. Rudeness and extreme agression seem to be the norm.
However, it is NOT like that in the rest of the North. From Western PA, to OH, and into the Midwest through the plains, you find a much larger percentage of honest hard working genuinely friendly people.
Take Iowa for example. By and large you find the same kind of mindset there that dominated small town America in the 1950s. (Its just like Beaver Cleaver). I don't find that negative at all. In fact, I like to visit there.
I do not think it is fair to lump us (northerners) all together.
My opinion only.
