New Hampshire is home to all types of people, and for a small state, we sure all get along well despite our differences. Here are 9 types of people that you’ll meet in New Hampshire…. Which describes you?
1. The Native
Native New Hampshirites are low key – they go with the flow, and are willing to listen to others, but will fiercely defend what they love.
2. The Redneck
Found throughout the backwoods of New Hampshire, the redneck’s house can be indentified by the trucks in the yard (covered in mud, of course), camo clothes and flags flying.
3. The Transplant
You may be reluctant to admit that you’re originally from Maine, or Vermont or – worst of all – Massachusetts, but you’ve fallen in love with your adopted home state through and through. There’s a reason you moved here, after all.
4. The Tourist
Mostly coming from Massachusetts to the south or Montreal to the north, The Tourists are spotted most easily in the Lakes Region during the summer, and on the ski slopes during the winter.
5. The Student
With a great state university system and the Ivy League in our State, it’s no wonder that many students come to New Hampshire to further their education, whether for undergrad, graduate school or medical school!
6. The Libertarian
This segment of the New Hampshire population is growing, with The Free State Project aiming to have 20,000 freedom-loving, small-government advocates move to the state.
7. The Scholar
Heavily concentrated in the Hanover and Exeter areas, or sprinkled on the college campuses throughout the state, The Scholar loves the finer things in life, but is also enamored with the inspirational energy in New Hampshire.
8. The Farmer
An endangered breed, The Farmer works the land, whether he or she is growing apples or raising livestock. We celebrate them heavily in the fall when we all enjoy fresh produce, and the rest of the year The Farmer works with silent conviction.
9. The Liberal
Closely related to the Scholar and The Transplant, Liberal New Hampshirites work hard to tie New Hampshire to its liberal New England ancestry.
