Definitely the Religious one. In the more Rural areas of Alabama there are churches everywhere, and if not there's a bunch of crosses or a "Jesus is real" sign. Even in the Urban areas there are crosses and such. The people though, are pretty religious too. If you want more churches, go to Kentucky, or Tennessee. There are TONS there.
It surprises me that the North school doesn't drink Sweet Tea as much because sweet tea is like all I drink.
Also it surprises me that the Northerners think that we all live on farms. In Auburn, there are some fields, but there are lots of neighborhoods too.
I am interested by the results.We both North and South have broken down the wall of sterio-types that existed between the Norths view of the South and the Souths view of the North.
I think that the survey was okay but the thing that was wrong was the sweet tea question In the south we drink tons of sweet tea .sweet tea is served at almost every restaurant.
It surprised me that people in then north like to tailgate. I honestly thought that only the south tailgated.
Where do you guys go to hunt I thought there wasn't anywhere to hunt
There is a lot of places to hunt up in Michigan!! My neighbor shot my 16 point that I have been trying to shoot for 2 YEARS. I've got to hunt for my family, kill them so I can put food on the table for my family.
Something that surprised me about the survey is the fact that they think that we don't drink a lot of sweet tea. Its at every restaurant and most people in the south love it.
Most of us southerners do drink sweet tea 24/7. It is always on the menu at every restaurant or fast food place. I'm not sure if any of you (northerners) realize that most southerners lives revolve around sweet tea.
Hey to the people in the North, we just looked at your survey results and we would like to tell y'all what you got wrong. Some things like family value and patriotism is stronger in the South, y'all said the North. Also women are usually treated better in the South, and people are a lot more polite, not rude or pushy in the South. Y'all have gotten that wrong too. Another thing is that Northerners are probably more likely to be smarter and talk correctly, you should see it here. But I have to say, life is awesome in Alabama!
It surprised me that a lot of people thought that we live out in country and are farmers. Like my grandparents live in the country and there is a lot of fields, but not everyone farms or lives in the country. A lot of people live in neighborhoods.
I think we go by what everyone else thinks of the north. But, a lot of the times, it isn't true. I was surprised when the northerners thought we valued family more than them. I am also surprised that they hunt, but I don't think they go as often as we do. I think they are more educated than us but that doesn't mean we are not smart.
I'm responding to the survey results. I think that we got most of the questions right except maybe southerners are not educated as well. I do agree that the North has a faster pace than the South. Thanks for the responses.
The thing that surprised me the most is the sweet tea thing. People in the south love sweet tea. It is at every restaurant down here.
what i'm most amazed about is that both schools agreed on almost everything
Most of us southerners do talk weird. I disagreed about y'all not being pushy though. If you look at New York, it is very crowded and every pushes each other.
I hate how the south is more known for racism and sweet tea because I hate both those things.
I think there were a few things that might have been mislead. I don't think that women are treated worse in the South than in the North. Also people down here don't mind helping out a stranger especially where I was raised. In the South we think that it is respectful to hold the door and respect is a big thing. Most of all the other things were pretty on target especially about the sweet tea.
The survey was right on somethings they said about northern and southern people. The survey was very interesting.
The biggest surprise to me was that they do drink sweat tea as much.
The thing that shocked me the most is that The north and the south look down on their selfs
The biggest surprise to me is that they think we all are farmers.
I was really surprised by the fact that northerners think that most southerners live on farms.
I was surprised that people in the North hunt.
Isn't a southern stereotype being polite? I mean I'm not very polite all the time but I thought it was? And I really don't like the sweet tea stereotype, I like tea but like, actual tea.
I was really surprised that people in the north go hunting a lot.
I really was surprised how they had said they go hunting a lot.. I would think that they get snowed out and its to cold. the south there is the warm weather and get to go hunting.
the biggest surprise was that they think we have a lot of a fat people but it not true
The thing that surprised me the most is how I would think we would live in farmlands, even though I really don't know any farmers...
One of the survey result that surprised me was that the northerners like to hunt... I didn't know that.
I wont to know who has the best football teams AUBURN
I am surprised that the North didn't think we drink as much tea as we do because if I looked in my fridge right now it has at least two gallons of sweet tea. I am also surprised the North says they are more religious because we live in the Bible Belt.
what surprised me was that they said they tailgate more than us.
I was surprised buy the northern people not helping people.
I was surprised that y'all hunt and say y'all tailgate more. Also we drink way more sweet tea than what the survey said y'all think we do.
I'm surprised that northerners think we live on mostly farms because most people don't.
I think its hilarious how they didn't think we really drink that much sweet tea! IT'S LITERALLY ALL WE DRINK
A lot of people think about northerners from what they hear. One thing I was surprised by was when ya"ll say you hunt and tail gate more than us, although I'm sure you do hunt I don't think you do as much as us. I'm sure ya'll speak more proper.
I was surprised that the northerners think that we don't drink tea that much but all I drink is sweat tea and I was also surprised to hear that they don't really drink tea.
I also was surprised to hear that northerners think we don't value our family as much as them when I love my family with all me heart.
The thing that surprised me the most was the sweet tea results because most people like sweet tea in the south.
I was surprised that people from the South thought that people from the North don't hunt
I was surprised that they said Southerners are more likely to help out a stranger.
What surprised me the most is how different the Northerners and Southerner think they are.
I was surprised that people in the north like to hunt.
For one of the surveys it asked if the pace of life in the South is slower, I was surprised that the class in the North thought that our pace of life wasn't slow.
I think im most surprised by the fact that the north said we don't treat women better in the south
it surprised me that the North thought we lived in the country and lived on farms. I was also surprised that they call us "rednecks". that's just a stereo type that people give Southerners.
I was surprised that the north thought that they were more patriotic than us. The south is definitely more patriotic and has more family values than the people in the north. Also the people in the south are a lot more hospitable than the people in the north.
that they said they don't like family
What surprised me the most is that they don't think we really drink sweet tea. I'm not saying that I do but I know a lot of people that do. For some people its all they drink.
I was surprised that northerners think that most people in the south live on farms and rural areas but we really don't. I wasn't really surprised about education being better in the north because naturally it just is.
I love sweet tea and yeah its my favorite drink.
The thing that really surprised me was the sweet tea result. I don't know if you guys visited the south even once, but around here people love sweet tea as much as their family. Some of us might not and that's okay, but the south is like the home of sweet tea. Also the hunting result like I thought that north didn't have that much hunting people or places to hunt at ?
The thing that surprised me the most was that they think all of us live out in the country away from cities.
Almost everything surprised me! I've always thought the south was more religious. Sweet tea is my favorite thing to drink. I didn't think the north had anywhere to hunt, so I was obviously way wrong on that one! Also, yall said that we don't value family as much, and of course I'm not trying to say that everyone in the north doesn't value family, but I've always thought northerners were more independent. OH! By the way, not all of use are rednecks, and some people are just an embarrassment to the rest of us making it seem that way!
It surprised me when they said southerners were more polite. I didn't expect them to admit to it.
When Mrs. Johnson told the class that we had a survey, I was wondering what it was about. When I looked at the first two question, I knew it was about Northern and Southern. I was happy that this was the subject because I lived in the north. But I was really surprised when they said the hunt because when I was up there nobody I knew hunted. But I miss yall so much. MICHIGAN for life!
I'm surprise that the northerners think we is less educated
i was surprised people go hunting a lot in the north.
I was honestly surprised the North hunt. I always thought there would be no land to hunt on.
I am surprised that many things we think about ourselves, the northerners think the same about us too.
I was supprised that the sweet tea questions were wrong I drink it almost every day
I'm surprised that they didn't think we drank Sweet Tea as much as we do, it's served at just about every restaurant. I was also surprised that they thought we lived in the country and on farms, I only know a few people that live on a farm here. But, they were right about how weird we speak sometimes (I tend to just nod if I don't understand).
I was surprised that they thought sweet tea wasn't a major drink in the south.
A survey result that surprised me was that the North people hunted and also that the they listen to country music.Being in the south its heavy with country music and loving when the deer hunting season came around and you would never think the north hunted.When I hear north it may be because i have never been there but i think about sunflower seeds and just all around straight to the point not caring but atleast its honest.
I thought that it was funny that yall thought that all people if the south lived on farms... and I would have never thought that people in the north hunt, I guess I was wrong there!
I think it's funny that everyone thinks we live in the city. Whenever I think of the north, I think of the very top of Michigan. It's true that in the cities most people don't hunt that often, but when I think of hunting I usually think of up north were it's less populated and there's more forest. Now that I think of it this is really funny, when I think of the north I think of low populated wilderness, but after reading some of the comments, most people from the south think of the north as highly populated cities. It's crazy how much a perspective can change by where you stand. :)
What surprised me about the survey results is how much sweet tea the Northerners think we drink! Clearly they've never been to the South!!!!!!!!
After living in Alabama for two years, the fact of someone thinking many southerners as farmers and living far out in the country seems almost bizarre. I mean their are many neighborhoods and barely any farmers here and to be honest barely anyone that I or many know live in the far country.
Did anyone else notice that we said Southerners were less likely to be well-educated, then five questions later we said Northerners were less likely to be well-educated.
I found the question " A lot of people from the South consider Northerners 'Yankees'" had a weird response from MMS considering it was mostly considered true because I have never heard that term in all the places I have lived and visited used for Northerners and it seemed a little odd
When I looked at the survey results, I was very surprised when I saw that most of the kids in the south said that most of the northerners live in big cities and we work in factories. When that is only true in some places not in most. I mean, I live in the middle of nowhere in the forest, And most people from the north live in neighborhoods.
The thing that surprised me the most about the survey was the racism thing and sweet tea. Mainly sweet tea because it's at every restaurant in Alabama.
It surprised me that we agreed so much. I thought that we would have completely different answers and only a couple that would be similar but we had a lot that we agreed on.
Something that surprised me was that I knew that the majority of 8-2 people would say "People from the South are less likely to talk correctly and they use some strange words & phrases" but when I saw the majority of Auburn people agreed, that surprised me because you usually say other people talk weird than yourself talking weird
I find it interesting how much Auburn people don't think we tailgate at sporting events (clearly you guys haven't been to a Michigan Football game- but I could say the same before I found out that data result)
It kinda was surprising to find out yall tailgate because int the south every Saturday evening getting through the campus area and try to tailate you see nothing but orange and blue.So it is surprising to find out yall tailgated.
Definitely sweet tea. Other than at school, I live off of sweet tea.
the northerns thought they would hold open the door instead of us
The results were kind of different then what I expected.
im surprise that they think we don't like sweet tea
I was surprised that people in the north think that people in the south don't drink a lot of sweet tea
I am surprised on how many questions on the survey that all us agreed on.
What surprised me the most about the survey is that Mattawan Middle School had more results than Auburn Junior High did.
Literally everything, I was surprised by almost all of this cause I never got this information from any one before so I give this a lemon out of 10
what does lemon out of 10 mean???
The thing that surprised me the most with the survey was how many things we agreed on. I thought that we would be on completely opposite sides on most of them and it turned out that we agreed on more than I thought we would.
I was very surprised that the amount of people that thought Northerners would be more pushy then them. The loud part I might be able to believe but I don't think we are very pushy or rude.
I found it interesting that 33% of Auburn Crew said that southerners are less likely to be educated, 32% said southerners are more likely to be pushy, loud, and rude than northerners, and 66% said that southerners are less likely to talk correctly and they use some strange
words & phrases.
I was surprised that The south thought just about the same of us as we about them. I honestly think there is no difference between us and them.
I was also surprised that their were so many prejudicious against the North and the South.
What had surprised me was that the North did not value family as much as the South, because in general I think almost everybody values family and there is no difference.
I know! When I saw the results and it said that, I was hoping that everyone values their family no matter where they live.
I found it rather interesting that for most of the questions, both of us agreed. One thing that I thought was a little bit odd was it seems as though when people think of the North, they think of New York (specifically the question about Northerners being referred to as "Yankees")And it depends where you are, but people from New York are very different from people in Kalamazoo.
I was most surprised that the majority of students from both schools thought that Southerners are more likely to be racially prejudiced.
The survey that surprised me the most was the survey about how much each of us value family. I don't think that it matters what part of the country you are from. Everyone has their own opinion about their family. Its not affected by location. Just my opinion :P
I was surprised that 60% of the kids from Alabama think that we do not value family as much as they do. I don't know where anybody would get information or hear this because just because we live in a different place doesn't mean we don't value family as much.
We have a lot of family fun traditions here in the south. That's why we said we value it more, not because we think ya'll don't value it. Everywhere you go you see people with their families.
It's not that we think that yall value family any less than we do. I think if there was an answer that said "I don't know" or "we value family the same", more people would have put that! In my opinion it's not about where you live, its about who you are.
What surprised me the most about the survey is that sweet tea was a popular drink in the south, because I had never known anything about sweet tea. So answering that question is like asking me something I don't know which is a little odd. Now if I go to the south, I won't have to think about why a lot of people are drinking sweet tea.
How have you never heard of sweet tea!? I love it! I'm sorry but I thought it was absolutely hilarious when I heard yalls "sweet tea" was iced tea with sugar on the side. If you want real sweet tea you have to add the sugar right after you brew it, otherwise it's disgusting. Also if your gonna put splinda instead of sugar you might as well not even make it.
The survey result that surprised me the most were the ones that were opposite of each other. The reason that those surprised me the most was because they were opposites off each other and had the same answer. For example Northerners talk strangely got voted no. Then the one that said Southerners talk strangely also got voted no.
The survey results intrigued me because I wasn't aware of what the Northerners thought of the Southerners and vise versa. Also, the results of the Northerners thinking Southerners only live on farms threw me off because it's not what I think at all.
The results from the survey that surprised me the most were the ones we agreed on and how close all the percentages were. Even on one of the results we had the same Exact statistics . This really surprised me the most because they were the ones that usually are said most often.
I found the survey to be very interesting. The thing I found the most interesting was how similar our results for which region is more likely to be racially prejudice. I guess neither of us are racially prejudice. I also found it interesting that so many Southerners think we don't hunt. I always thought Southerners wouldn't hunt because of how warm it is, but I guess in some states in the North they don't hunt as much as us Michiganders do.
I always thought that Northerners wouldn't hunt because of how cold it is, and a lot of people here do hunt (it's actually a common thing my family does when we get together during the season).
Honestly the survey itself annoyed me, I disagreed with all of the questions except for the few that would be true because of climate difference. I was surprised how much we agreed on most all of the questions.
I thought the survey results were interesting. It's interesting because we don't know how it is in the south, as they don't know how it is in the north. We can only say it based on our prior knowledge.
What surprised me about the survey is that we agreed on many questions. But what I find most interesting about this survey is that some of the answers from both places were very opinionated. Like if we value family more than southerners.
The thing that surprised me the most was the one where most people said that northerners are less likely to hold open a door for someone. Many people in the north are very nice and most people would, the is about a few people in the north who are just not kind, nice, or giving.
I thought that the stereotypes are spot on. Most of the stereotypes are true, I don't see that as a bad thing, I see data that shows a lot about America's culture and how different the north and south states are. The states need to be different because if we were all the same life would be very boring. I think the stereotype data that was collected are very useful in our unit.
I suppose that indeed, what rather shocked me was my classmate's responses to the survey. I feel like we're taught quite well on the dangers of stereotyping, and the strength of mind it takes to overcome them. The survey, however, reflects close to none of the knowledge bestowed upon us, and rather poorly represents us. In the statement " for northerners it's not customary to say thank you when the door is held open", for example, us Northerners lamely stated we believed against this only 73%, when we're taught early on the manners we must use at school. Also, on the statement "Most Northerners live in big cities" we answered with true, when a majority of us are rural. These things, along with many others, simply showed how easily we fall victim to rumors, and how easily we believe what we hear.
The thing that surprised me the most on the survey was that the south and the north agreed that the people from the north are in better shape. This surprised me because I don't know how or why either side would compare. 66% of the south said the north is in better physical shape. 71% of the north agreed. I guess the north is just "modest".
What surprised me the most was how in both north and south women aren't appreciated enough. Meaning they are not treated better either way. Which makes it hard for any women to feel appreciated enough when they aren't treated better either way.
I thought it was interesting on how a lot of things were about the same, like we agreed on a lot of stuff
I agree with most of the results because most of them were stereotypes that turned out to be true. It surprised me that most of us agreed on the stereotypical things.
Northerners think southerners don't value family
What surprised me the most is that Northerners think that Southerners don't value family but southerners think that they do value family
I was surprised that southerners don't farm as much as I thought they did because they have a great climate for farming
Yes. A lot of people don't have or live on a farm.
I thought it was interesting that with certain stereotype questions, like is the south kinder than the north, both north and south agreed
I was surprised on how a lot of the things that were stereotypical were agreed on. Some of the questions like how the Northerners valued family more were not true. Northerners and Southerners value family mostly the same.
I was very surprised that there was a 50 50 in the Questions
I was surprised that the south didn't do as much farming as i thought they did they have land and there climate is great for framing i don't know why they don't
I was surprised of the amount of people that thought Northerners are more pushy then them. The loud part I might be able to believe but I don't think we are very pushy.
im suprised they said they taligate as much as us
The fact that they don't drink SWEET tea, they just drink regular tea.
Yall know we are Very southern and country, but not all of us are farmers and rednecks.
What surprised me the most is they think we live out in the country and are farmers
The reason why we thought you guys down in the south farm a lot was most likely influenced by our location. We live near a lot of farm lands, across the street from my house is about 10 acres of farm land. If you were to look up Mattawan, MI on google earth, you would see a lot more farm lands than big cities.
I was interested because of the stereo-typical answers they had, it surprised me a lot.
m surprised they don't think we like sweet tea
I was surprised that ya'll thought we didn't really drink sweet tea and that's pretty much all they serve at restaurants..
im surprised they think e don't like sweet tea
people in the north go hunting
I was shocked bc we agreed on a lot of stuff
One new wondering that i have is that why do some kids when most of you live very close to the campus and have the opportunity to go to the games here we have to drive about an hour or more to see a Michigan or Michigan State game there are very many sports to see.
Why don't you go and see the games when you have that opportunity to see the games?
I was surprised by how your school went from August to the end of May, and how there were hot wings at your school for lunch! What kinds of food are common, and what is your favorite food?
Watching the video made me wonder what kind of shoe brands are the most popular down there. Here in Michigan shoes are very important to us and the video made me winder if you guys value shoes also, and what kind of shoes you like most.
After watching the video and reading the comments about how you guys in the south enjoy a lot of tea makes me wonder what about sweet tea or tea in general is so appealing to the people in the south.
It stinks that I wasn't able to do the teleconference… :(
