PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Portlanders are among the most irrationally angry people in the country, according to a list from lifestyle website Thrillist.

The Rose City is ranked ninth on the site's list of the '11 Angriest cities in America, ranked by irrationality.'

Rather than pinpoint the serious issues each city deals with, Thrillist said the list is based on the "trivial" reasons residents tend to be angry.

Thrillist says Portlanders are especially passive-aggressive and targets of their anger include "tech bros" from California, gentrification and the TV show 'Portlandia.'

The 'City of Brotherly Love,' Philadelphia, ironically took the top spot on the list.

The full list:

  1. Philadelphia
  2. Cleveland
  3. Boston
  4. Washington, DC
  5. Detroit
  6. Chicago
  7. New York City
  8. San Francisco
  9. Portland
  10. Las Vegas
  11. Nashville
