About This Quiz

A person's character is obviously not just one thing. You might be really shy but also very creative. You might be super intense and ambitious, but also very much a fan of spending time in nature and making sure you appreciate Mother Earth. You might be really book-smart, but absolutely awful with meeting new people. 

What's also true is that while you may have many facets to your personality, some of them are bigger factors in what lifestyle you need than others are. If you're very community-oriented, that may necessitate a small town, even though you could also be super artsy and thus prefer the cultural offerings of a large city. The solution; a small town with good transport links.

Fortunately, America's 50 states contain a vast range of options for you, with multiple states offering multiple lifestyles simply because they're absolutely enormous. After all, the way you might live in Miami is very different from how you'd live in a place like the remote corners of the Everglades. That's why we've designed this quiz to figure out a spot that will suit you based on your personality, your priorities, and what you need from your surroundings. Let's get started!
