Being from Indiana, I can honestly say that I am not surprised by this. 

The website Big Seven Travel asked its readers to rank all 50 states according to how friendly people are.  Indiana ranked among the top ten friendliest states. Big Seven Travel had this to say about Indiana's ranking:

Locals in Indiana pride themselves on their exceptional ‘Hoosier hospitality’, going above and beyond for other people. People here are good-natured, with a good sense of humour. So much more than just a “fly over” state, Indiana will hold a special place in your heart after just one visit.

I mean, they aren't wrong. I feel like (especially here in the Tri-State) we have a tremendous amount of hospitality. We are an area full of hard working people who would give the shirt off their back for someone in need. Six out of Fifty isn't bad.
