Researchers at the University of Cambridge surveyed more than 600,000 people to develop a personality map of the United States. The results show people living in the Tar Heel State among the friendliest people in the nation. Once we found this out, we sent our friendliest reporter, John Rendleman to see if this holds true in the Wilmington area. Richard Olsen, the Chairman of the Communications Dept. at UNC-Wilmington thinks he knows why. "Part of the friendly factor is we value it as a culture, it's in our beauty pageant south culture, to be friendly and to come across friendly and some of that is the slower speech," said Olsen. The survey also stated that residents of North Dakota were named the most sociable. New Yorkers have the honor of being more high strung.
