Is Idaho one of the Snobbiest States?
There is a fine line between being proud of who you are and where you come from and just being a snobby b****.
Some states are KNOWN for having stuck-up and snobby locals while other states are known for being more humble and laidback. A study was done by a website called Zippia to determine where snobbiness is most commonly found around the country. Where does Idaho fall?
Idaho ranked in the upper half coming in at number 19 on the list. I personally believe that Idahoans ride this fine line pretty well. We do have a lot of pride in our beautiful gem state but I think the pride is more towards the state of Idaho itself than our individual selves. Except when it comes to the acceptances of outsiders. We all know the general Idahoan consensus there.
This study used four main criteria when determining the snobbiest state: Percent of population with a bachelor’s degree, percent of degree earners with a degree in arts and humanities, number of Ivy League colleges, and gallons of wine consumed yearly per capita. It's all the criteria that makes up your average snob.
26% of adult Idahoans have a college diploma. 22% of that population has an Arts Or Humanities Degree. If this was determined by wine bottles per person alone though, Idaho would've by far been titled as the snobbiest! We're some wine-os over here with 37 wine bottles per person.
It appears that most snobs can be found in the northeast which is not much of a surprise. That's old money! Of course, snobs span all across the country with Oregon and California containing the most on the west coast.
