Generally, Greeks and Macedonians regarded one another with a mixture of contempt and respect. The Macedonians were considered almost barbarians in Greece; their accent and their imtation of Hellenic customs were laughed at, though the wealth of their princes and the country's potential strength were known and and respected; while on the other side the Macedonians, however much they tried to assimilate the Greek way of life, nevertheless despised the Sophists' playing on words and were conscious of the superiority of their own kingdom over the Greek city States, weakning each other by their everlasting disputes.
