Social delimitations in Paris ... unnervingly accurate!

This amusing social categorisation of Paris, partly by arondissement and partly by general area, is uncannily perceptive:

(shamelessly 'filched' from the excellent l'Homme est un concept blog)

I particularly like the dismissive tone of "Personne n'y va" - absolutely true in my experience and as for the area classified as "Coupe-gorge" the very few times I ever passed through that area I did feel rather out of place, to put it mildly. As for the areas outside Paris, the general attitude of Parisians is "who cares", as exemplified by the classifications there. Whether I fitted in entirely with the "Chalalas" classification of the area where I lived is anyone's guess - lol.
