When it comes to voicing opinions, the people of the West Midlands are not backwards in coming forwards.
Whatever the issue, we're certain to have a view and won't hesitate in expressing it.
But while West Midlanders believe it's our democratic right to 'shout it out loud', we're still straggling behind the good folk of Yorkshire who - perhaps not surprisingly - have claimed the title of being the most opinionated in the country.
In the county that gave us Geoffrey Boycott, Emmerdale and Jarvis Cocker, 93 per cent of people said they would readily give their opinion on a range of subjects from politics to relationships.
On average across the UK and Northern Ireland, 85 per cent of those questioned said they would offer their opinions, the poll by community website Yahoo! Answers found.
But only 75 per cent said they were interested in the opinions of others and just 47 per cent were open to changing their minds after hearing different views.
Jeff Revoy, European director of Yahoo! Search and Local Search, said: "It is great to see a region so happy to voice their opinions."
Devon and Cornwall came second in the survey - with 89 per cent of residents willing to offer an opinion - and the West Midlands and Wales came a close joint third (86 per cent).
The research, carried out across the UK and Northern Ireland, found one in three Britons believes it is their "democratic duty" to share opinions, with only three per cent feeling that it is not important to have one.
The study marks the launch of the Yahoo! Answers campaign to recruit experts willing to share their opinions and knowledge with others across the UK. Skopos Market Insight conducted the research on behalf of Yahoo!
