HBO — to Cis Re: Uptight People

Cis Gors: "East Coast especially in New England are known for being tight with their money, sometimes uptight and closed mouth. ... But when they meet you, they want to know who your parents and grandparents are and etc. Because of being closed mouth, they are thought to be snobs, and some of them are. A lot of them aren't. They just aren't as loose and friendly as people on the West coast are."

DFO: Easterners seem to have an edge to them. They're in a hurry. They talk fast. Walk fast. Then, mebbe I'm describing New Yorkers from the city.

Question: Who are the most uptight people in the U.S. of A.? The friendliest?
