When an individual becomes infatuated with their own reputation and creates a faux following and ego around themselves. This is all undone upon the individual visiting a larger town or city, where they find themselves somewhat unknown and ignored.
When someone has lived for so long in a small town that they form a sense of entitlement to themselves and act as if there isn't a relevant world outside of their town.
Someone with small-town syndrome usually is majorly concerned with gossip and events only happening with people in their town and let their life revolve around such meaningless rumors. They act as if life is high school. Parents/Adults and children all engage in cliquey behavior.
People with small-town syndrome usually don't realise they act this way, and may be insulted if pointed out.
People with small-town syndrome may have lots of trouble adjusting to life in the real world (wherever they move to out of the comfort of their family/friends also from same town)
Small town syndrome is when people's thoughts are limited by a mental box, the less knowledge of the outside world, the smaller the box. This often happens when people do not venture past their back door.
A person from a small town goes to a big city and acts and thinks they are the shit, when in reality they aren't.
