We Knew It: Londoners Are Different

grumpy_london.jpg We always knew Londoners were special, but apparently we're "becoming psychologically separate from the rest of the nation". So says Dr Jason Rentfrow from Cambridge University, who's put together a 'personality map' of the UK. Increased mobility means like-minded people cluster together, and us capital-dwelling types are more likely to be creative, open-minded, intellectual but less friendly. Oi! We'll have less of that. The Sun claims this means London attracts "show-offs" - but we, writing on a website for public consumption, couldn't possibly comment. (Grumpy in London image by kaytethinks)
