INTP's from the south?

So I was wondering what its like being an INTP who lives in the south.. I lived in New York my whole life so i felt my INTP personality was supported because people aren't really expected to be as friendly or hug all the time. This past year I went to a college in Arkansas and felt I stuck out a whole lot more because I wasn't overly friendly of touchy..I feel I stuck out even worse because I'm a girl and I was expected to play more of a girl traditional role? I don't know I just thought it would be interesting to have feedback from an INTP who grew up in the south..

I have lived in the Southern US since birth and traveled quite a bit.

For the most part, I have not found a correlation between geographic location (North/South) and cultural acceptability of the "friendly hug." What is considered as acceptable behavior for a specific gender plays a much larger role, in my opinion.
