15 Types Of People You Will Encounter In Ohio
Although stereotypes are not a healthy way to view the world, Ohio has undeniably cultivated some pretty common habits and traits within our natives throughout the course of their lives in this state—and they’re really easy to spot. The following are just a small sample of the types of people you are guaranteed to encounter in Ohio, but their personality traits don’t just stop there. (Talk to them for more than five minutes. You’ll see.)
1) The Ohio State Buckeye enthusiast.
2) The farmers who make our glorious weekly farmers markets possible.
3) The environmental friendly, gluten-free, resourceful ones (who practically live for the weekly farmer's market.)
4) The ever-determined, faithful Bengals/Browns/Indians/Reds fan.
5) The all-knowing oracle of all things Ohio (These people can tell you everything you’ve ever wanted to know about Ohio. And they can probably give you the exact coordinates of the locations where all the U.S. presidents from Ohio lived and grew up. I mean, I’ve never actually asked any of them this, but it’s worth a shot.)
6) The all-season amusement park/zoo and aquarium/water park pass holder who refuses to miss out on anything that might be happening at Cedar Point or any other park that proves to be their absolute favorite.
7) The well versed deer/mushroom/turkey hunter.
8) The suburban dweller that claims to live in a big city merely because it’s an easier way to describe to you than where he/she lives.
9) The country lover...
10)….and the city lover (your state has these too.)
11) The hipsters who bike to work, appreciate and/or create street art and give us drip coffee. (You can usually find them at places like The Short North.)
12) The impatient and road raged driver you wish you hadn't encountered. (Every state has them.)
13) The down-to-earth, friendly people whom you genuinely enjoy stopping to talk to on their porch as you’re passing by.
14) The anywhere-but-here Ohio haters who are actually really uneducated and unfamiliar with the state they live in.
15) The explorers who have road tripped all over the state and really appreciate it for what it is. (These people are my personal favorites. You’ll likely find them geocaching or photographing outside somewhere. Join them.)
