St. Louis Breakdown:

"South City Hoosier" - These are hoosiers that have all the hoosier trademarks and live south of Highway 44. Almost all of the men work in the automotive field. The women usually are the ones buying Basic cigarettes and scratch-off tickets at a South Grand gas station on Wednesday mornings while thier 7 and 9 year old kids are listening to Eminem in the Astro van.

"South County Hoosier" - These hoosiers aren't always poor rednecks. In fact, most of them own homes and have decent jobs. Look for fishing boats in the driveways, Christmas lights in May and stockpiles of Busch Light beer. Many of the men are hunters and/or fishermen and all have buddies that can fix your car. The women usually have part-time jobs, and slightly newer vans. Many south county hoosiers grew up as south city hoosiers.

"Jefferson County Hoosier" - These hoosiers are a wily bunch. Most drive pickup trucks and have boots that are heavily stained and torn to shreds. They usually start sentences with "hey man..." and all of thier stories are about thier brother-in-law. They too hunt, but can't afford to have thier deer stuffed and mounted like most South County Hoosiers. Almost all of these hoosiers are extremely conservative, and very few work in St. Louis. The women generally wear clothes from 1993 and rock 80's style femullets and bangs. Most smoke menthol cigarettes but will buy the non-menthol brands for thier 14 year old sons named Levi.

"St. Charles Hoosiers" - St.Chares hoosiers are rare sightings. They look normal, and drive nice trucks but almost always live in a home that contains wheels. They have money for stuff like Imo's pizza and Bud Light beer, but only on Saturday's or during Rams's games. They often don't even know that they are in fact hoosiers because they live in St. Charles, howvever the burger king bags on they're floorboards and Z107.7 stickers on their cars are a dead giveaway.

South City - "We went to Ted Drewe's last night"
"Oh yeah, how was that?"
"It was alright, but a total hoosier-fest!"

South County - "I was pulling out of my street and my freakin' hoosier neighbors' dog ran right in front of my car!"

Jefferson County - "Hey man do you have a copy of AC/DC's Back in Black at your place? My damn brother-in-law borrowed mine like three weeks ago, and I aint seen it since!"

St. Charles - "I met some girl at Harrah's but the minute she started talking about how she filed a restraining order against her ex, I knew I was dealing with a full-fledged hoosier!"

Refers to a person from the state of Indiana. Most people including Hoosiers themselves don’t even know how the term originated. Early folklore suggests it originated from early settlers who said “who’s yer” when answering their door. Another theory states that it came from early fierce rivermen called “hushers” who would “hush” or silence their adversaries. By the early 1800s "hoosier" was widely used in Indiana to refer to poor farmers or ignorant, rustic people in general. It is one of the most well-known of state nicknames. True, there are Buckeyes of Ohio and the Tarheels of North Carolina, but none has had the popular usage accorded Hoosier.

The culture of Hoosiers is conservative, laid-back and may seem like hicks by persons from either coast, but not anymore backwards than anywhere else. They are an average folk in America’s heartland who live in small towns, sizeable communities and their suburbs. Hoosiers are known for their deep love for basketball, but only at the high school and college level, despite having an NBA team (Pacers). It is practically a religion, especially at tournament time. The RCA Dome in Indianapolis fills to capacity as high school teams compete in the state’s basketball tournaments. Hoosiers are often divided in loyalty between the Indiana Hoosiers and Purdue Boilermakers. The term “Hoosier Hysteria” describes the state’s love for basketball and was depicted in the movie Hoosiers. Auto racing is also big for Hoosiers and actually brings in more dollars than basketball. The Indy 500 and Brickyard 400 are held in Indianapolis and are the world’s two largest single-day sporting events. Hoosier dialect is diverse but may sound a bit southern to those from the upper Great Lakes, but not as distinct as Kentucky. Some with a southern draw live in and around the Indianapolis area and most points south. Hoosier culture, as of lately, has become famous for:

1. Complaining about your state of
Indiana rather than getting off your fat, lazy ass and doing something to
make it better.
2. Complaining about absolutely
everything, even the good that will
benefit their state.
3. Ignorantly complaining their state is the worst while not realizing it is average; some states are worse
and some are better.
4. Ignorantly complaining of the
alleged “lack of jobs,” while not
realizing it has faired better than
other regional states.
5. Refusing to adapt to change even for the better.
6. Ignorantly complaining about the alleged “lack of jobs” while also
complaining when a corporation wants
to expand in the state.
7. Blaming the good Governor for
everything, even the good.
8. Blaming the Governor for your
personal shortcomings.
9. Blaming the Legislature for your shortcomings.
10. Complaining about the poor quality of roads while also complaining
about road construction to improve
them.
Hoosiers are good people but constant whiners who act like they have no life.

in st. louis, mo this term refers to a redneck or hillbilly, so basically most of the white people. outside of stl, hoosier is not widely recognized to have this definition. this confuses outsiders greatly when visiting the city.

A native of Indiana that would otherwise be described as a hick. Tends to be very provincial, viewing Indiana as the center of the universe, while reflecting the interests, habits, and dialect of working class people of the state. Politically conservative.
Jim Bob, from Seymour Indiana, is a proud Hoosier who drives a pickup truck with an American Flag waving from it, loves auto racing and basketball, wears a mullet, uses words such as "aint" or "y'all", and considers people from a large city such as New York or Chicago as being weird, un-American big city slickers.

Is anyone who is less sophisticated than you.

Origin. Dates back to the 1860's when Pro-South Baptist Indianans moved to St. Louis County and fought Abolitionist German Catholics in a number of battles during the Civil War. Most of the City was Pro-Union and refered to Southern sympathizing County residents as Hoosiers.

Non St. Louis examples are found in the David Mamet penned remake of "We're no Angels" starring Sean Penn and Robt. DeNiro. Penn's Character says... "I look like a Hoosier or something." Also in Joseph Pistones Autobiographical "Donnie Brasco," Sonny Black uses Hoosier as an epithet.
For example if I were an eighth grade graduate then I would think that all those who dropped out in seventh grade were Hoosiers. If I wore a mullet all those with rat tails would be Hoosiers.

Also used in the common quip... "Hoosier daddy," as a joke on someones questionable paternity.

I have a masters degree and live in Portland, OR. To me those folks who live in West County, Clayton, U-City and Ladue that only have Bachelors degrees are Hoosiers
