Note: I am not from the North and I have never been there but there are certain stereotypical things we can learn from them. 1. Politics: Southerners are far more democratic than the north, in times of peace this might seem like such a great idea but in times of crisis this is terrible, northerners know how to unify and select a single leader to represent them whereas in the south everyone wants to be a leader and so it further divides people making Southerners less powerful. 2. Religion: Northerners are very religious this is supposed to be a bad thing but this could have some benefits...People who are very religious tend to believe in themselves in their own destiny, in their own future, if used properly religious zeal can lead people to greatness, once again in the South religion has been bastardized it has become a tool for making money, a tool for entertainment or as in most cases a tool for resentment. This why Talibans defeated the Afghan forces. 3. Women: Northerners are always accused of treating women badly, of how they are dogs who can't marry one woman, now lately in the South there's so much tension between Men and Women, babymamas and sluts are now on the rise, the same men who say Northerners are cruel to women will come out and say "Nigerian women are useless all of them" this has led to a rise in divorce cases, cheating husbands, friendzoning, paternity fraud etc. Whereas the north foresaw these problems and prevented them. Again my own opinion, you can add yours... thanks.
