About This Quiz

Every state in the U.S. has its own set of traits, but there's nothing more unique than your personality! Are you living in the state that matches you best, or is there another one that would be better suited for you? Once you answer some questions about your personality characteristics, we'll pair you up with the state that you have the most in common with. 

States like Florida are known for having a unique approach to the world, but every state has something original to offer. Does your personal style make you a better fit for the California coast or the mountains of Kentucky, though? Throughout this quiz, you'll get to put yourself on display. All of your quirks and your likes and dislikes will be acknowledged; then, they'll be compared to the personality traits each state has to offer.

Will you match up with a state you've never considered, or will you learn that you're already living in your ideal home? Everything you tell us will go a long way to narrow in on which one of the country's states suits you best. Let's go exploring, and we'll discover what state would make you feel most like yourself simply by being there!
