About This Quiz

Are you unhappy with where you live? Maybe you hate the town you've settled in or perhaps you're just bored by it. Either way, if you're considering a new adventure in another place, this is the quiz for you!

We're going to ask you a series of questions about your preferences, such as the kind of activities you enjoy, your favorite sports, your favorite music and your personal values. By digging deep and thinking hard about what you really enjoy in life, you'll be able to understand the kind of environment that would suit you best. 

This is important because the United States is a huge place, and different states can have very divergent cultures. If you choose to live in a place that doesn't align with your values or facilitate the hobbies you enjoy, then it will be hard for you to find personal satisfaction. For example, a shy person who doesn't like the great outdoors may not fully appreciate California, while surfers shouldn't consider settling in Kansas, despite its good real estate values.

Life is too short to waste time living in a place you don't truly love. So are you ready to find out where you really belong? Get started by taking this quiz!
