Disobey the rules of Minnesota Nice.
Minnesota Nice is our cultural identity. It means we have an ingrained aversion to confrontation, we avoid drawing attention to ourselves, and we prefer not to make a fuss. Minnesotans can feign a pleasant demeanor and cheerful attitude even during the most challenging circumstances. Feel like bragging about yourself? In the mood for an argument? Well, keep it under wraps because, gosh darnit — you’re making us uncomfortable.
