While I think people are country or city people, I don't think it's because they live in one place or another, if that makes sense. They just grow up to be the way they are.
I've noticed that city people do tend to be more standoffish or rude in consumer areas, aka the grocery store...to the cashier. They also are the ones that request plastic many times.
Country folk are usually friendly, but sometimes they lose their temper too and come off extremely rude. They seem to like paper more. Oh, and they're the ones that come in smelling like...ahh...pigs. Ick.
I have a friend that would be considered a city girl. She rides with me and my best friend, who I would consider more country people. She has been riding for years but still has beginner tendencies. First of all, she has this thing where she always falls off. And I have absolutely no idea how. She'll just fall off. She's a great sport about it and is fearless, so points there, but she just doesn't...I don't know...click with it? She also has unrealistic ideas about horses still. The horses can stay in the trailer parked for hours. She forgets horses can slip on ice. She wants to gallop out on the trails ALL THE TIME. And every time we get to a somewhat steep hill or creek bank, she freaks out. And she always thinks we're going to get lost when I know the trails fairly well...though this is probably because my BFF and I got lost out on the trails at night once and she heard about it...long story...
If you're like me, a country person, though not on the extreme end of the spectrum, you probably enjoy quietness outside with lots of scenery and no traffic or people. I dislike cities because they are noisy and there are too many people. I like the solitude. I can clean up well, but 99.9% of the time I'm in cowboy boots. My podiatrist told me to nix the cowboy boots - I won't. My dermatologist gave me acne medication and told me to stay out of the sun. Not going to happen. You'll never catch me in heels, crowds give me a headache, I'm uncomfortable in formal attire, and I don't care for being proper, just genuine.
I feel like city people have more "modern" things and décor, while country folk tend to be more "country" in their selections lol.
I could go on, but I can't think of anything off the top of my head right now.
