@LoveIsGood great point. I'm always more focused on material side of things, so I consider the most important difference is that in city your environment is controlled for you by someone else, outside of the city you have to control the environment or see your living conditions deteriorate fast. That difference alone should cause a big shift in mindset.
In remote enough places that comes with a bonus of understanding that nature is actually constantly trying to kill you :)
