About This Quiz

Are you living in a place that makes you truly happy, or does your soul yearn for different sights? While your happiness is dependent on many factors, such as the quality of your relationships, your boundary-setting skills and your health, living in the wrong place can make it harder for you to flourish. 

For instance, if you love going out, you probably won't be happy if you're living in the country. Likewise, if you're an introvert, you won't savor the obligations that come from living in a community that believes in Southern hospitality. If you're a surfer, you won't get much out of living in Idaho, while if you hate the cold, you're going to have a difficult time appreciating Alaska's splendor. 

So, what kind of environment does your soul crave? If you're not sure of the answer to that question, this is the perfect quiz for you. We're going to ask you about all of your preferences, from your least-favorite genre of music to the industry you want to work in. By the end of the quiz, we'll be able to tell you which state can deliver the qualities that your soul hankers after. Are you ready to find out where your true home is? It's time to take this quiz!
