What is the #seattlefreeze?! The Seattle Freeze refers to a belief that it is especially difficult to make new friends (particularly for transplants from other cities) in the city of Seattle, Washington.
Newcomers to the area have described Seattleites as being standoffish, cold, distant, and not trusting,while in settings such as bars and parties, people from Seattle tend to mainly interact with their particular clique.
One author described the aversion to strangers as: "people are very polite but not particularly friendly." In 2008 a peer-reviewed study published in Perspectives on Psychological Science found that among all states, Washington residents ranked 48th in the personality trait extroverted.Some residents dispute the existence of the Seattle Freeze.
So what do you think? Have you experienced it?
How have you overcome the "freeze"?
