A common misconception of residents in New Jersey is the individuals on the Jersey Shore. People in New Jersey are commonly stereotyped as steroid poppin', hair spiked, orange douche-bags or for women extensions in hair, fake long nails, orange bitches. To your surprise, people from New Jersey happen to be normal human beings. The only areas with the New Jersey stereotype are in the Jersey Shore and most of those people are from New York or Philadelphia. The people who are from New Jersey and follow the stereotype are despised by the normal folk in New Jersey. Most of us do not speak with an accent, do not say "Joisey", pronounce the words "dog" and "talk" properly and are completely aware there is not a "w" in either of those words. If you do your research you will find that most of the people on the MTV reality show "Jersey Shore" are from New York. Trust me, whenever we see that New Jersey stereotype we too despise him and classify he/she as "Douche". To sum this all up, the stereotype is false. We are normal people. The only people who follow the stereotype are New Yorkers, Philadelphians, and the common anus.
- I have lived in New Jersey my entire life.

Person #1: I'm from New Jersey.
Person #2: No you're not!
Person #1: Yes I am...
Person #2: No, if you were you would have an accent and say "Joisey" HAHAHAHAHAH!
Person #1: Die, away from me...

Ummm..try New Jersey has the highest per capita wealth of any state (that's right more than NY or CT) And of course, we respect NY, a lot of us go into the city very often, and New Jersey is very classy. We have classic prep towns like Ridgewood and lots of celebrities live in Saddle River, among other towns. Bergen County is among the richest in the country and we may be a suburb, but we're close enough to cities like Hoboken that there's something going on all the time. Plus, we have a whole bunch of NY sports teams playing in NJ, like the Jets, Giants, etc. Please respect New Jersey, we respect you guys.
Most of us who live here think that NJ is a great place to live! Our schools are among the best in the nation, and we have an abundance of fresh air and trees! We're centrally located so we can enjoy the splendor of many states, NY and CT amongst the many.

A geographically and culturally diverse east coast state that is often overshadowed by New York and Philly. New Jersey has many appealing tourist spots and is not given the credit that it deserves. There are, however, a few scary places in New Jersey, such as Camden, with the country's highest murder rate, and the Pine Barrens, where a little critter called the Jersey Devil eats helpless and stranded tourists with flat tires on New Jersey's Route 72.

The best state in the U.S. Even though most people hate on N.J., it has the best corn and tomatoes, among other things. New Jersey is also famous for Bon Jovi, Redman, Queen Latifah, Naughty By Nature, Bruce Springstein, and many others.
Place where are all of the major casinos are located on the East Coast.

The greatest place in the entire continental United States. Everyone who doesn't like New Jersey is a communist. There, I said it. Contrary to popular opinion, it doesn't smell there at all, is cleaner than New York, and is home to some of the nicest people ever. Plus, we don't pump our own gas, bitches. Also, home to the most wiggers and emo kids. New York can have them both.
if you dont like jersey, fine, cuz we dont like you either

The best state in the country. Is often dissed by Pennsylvanians because of the infamous "Fifteen Miles of Universal Fart" but I'd sure as hell rather smell that than cow manure and all the other shit PA has to offer.

My Home state. If you haven't been here don't judge because every place has common misconceptions. First of all no one ever says Joisey, seriously no one ever does. North Jersey is influenced by New York and South Jersey is influenced by Philly. That's why in North Jersey alot of people are NY Giants fans and in the southern end people like the Eagles more. Most people here respect New York and love NYC. We also appreciate Philly, we have two of the best cities right next to us. The suburbs of NJ are awesome. The houses are gigantic, most people are friendly, parties all the time, and seasonal weather. We have more Pizza and Bagel shops than all of the west coast and south put together. We are a diverse state, Whites, Blacks, Hispanics, Asian, Indian, all live together. We do have some gang related problems in Newark, Camden, and Trenton but all cities have crime unless they're in the middle of no where. We usually are short tempered people but really nice. Like I said we have seasonal weather, summer = Hot as hell. Fall = Breezy but still wear shorts. Winter = Fucking freezing. Spring = warm and nice. The Jersey shore is really nice, clean water, and big waves. I'm not saying Jersey is better than where you live. I love the West Coast, California and Nevada are amazing. I like the South too, Miami is my favorite city and I want to go to Atlanta and North Carolina. The Mid-West is cool and I love the North East because it's my home. What I'm saying is, I don't think Jersey is better than every other place, but it Isn't even close to being horrible. Don't Judge untill you've seen the entire state.
Ignorant Fuck: New Jersey sucks they have fucked up accents, gangs, and rich snobs in the suburbs.

Educated Person: Actully No one speaks with that accent, every city has crime, and not all the suburban people are snobish, they worked hard to make it there.
