Two different sets of psychology researchers have put US cities on the couch recently and asked what kind of people live in which kinds of places. One group "gathered personality information on 47,369 people from the 50 largest U.S. cities through an Internet survey. They then split these traits into two categories: strengths of the head, which include creativity, curiosity, open-mindedness, and love of learning, and strengths of the heart, which include gratitude, compassion, teamwork, hope, modesty, religiousness." Los Angeles ranked very high in "head" and very low in "heart." [Infrastructurist, via Planetizen]
