New Yorkers have a bit of a reputation when it comes to talking loudly. But just how loud are the people living in New York, especially when compared to other parts of the country?

Everyone's got their bad habits when it comes to communicating; such as putting your phone on speaker in public, talking throughout a movie at the theater, or just plain shouting at the top of lungs when it's not necessary.


The study surveyed people across the country to "find which cities and states have the loudest talkers". Preply also asked which "loud activities they are guilty of doing in public, which activities they find annoying, where people are the loudest, and more."
