Maybe we just like things the way we like them, ok?

What does it mean to be snobby? My favorite definitions from Merriam-Webster include "one who tends to rebuff, avoid, or ignore those regarded as inferior", and also "one who has an offensive air of superiority in the matter of knowledge or taste." These are what I think of when I think of snobs.

With those definitions in mind, do you consider our lovely state to be looped in with this classification?

I certainly don't however, Zippia has a different opinion. Zippia released a list of The Snobbiest States recently and Colorado was higher than I expected. We were not number one, by any stretch of the imagination, and we were not in the top 10, but we did land at number 21.

That's in the top half, meaning on this scale of 'snob' to 'not snob', we're leaning toward snob.

So how exactly did Zippia craft this list? Well, according to their post, they looked at four specific distinguishing factors: percentage of population with a bachelor's degree, number of Ivy League colleges, percent of degree earners with a degree in art and humanities, and gallons of wine consumed yearly.

I don't know about you, but it kind of sounds to me like being a snob just means you are smart and love wine. If that's the case then I will wear my snob badge with pride. In fact, I might even add it to my Instagram bio.
