About This Quiz

Are you so polite that you could live in Canada? We're not saying that Americans are impolite, but Canadians have more of a stiff upper lip. Let's take a deep look at your manners and find out if you belong more in the United States or if you should pack your bags and move to Canada. 

While different American regions are known for their various flavors of behavior and etiquette, we generally see our friends north of the border as being far more polite - at least on the surface. Answer our questions about the way you handle various situations, about your personality, and about the way you live your life, and we will be able to make the call. 

Are you the type that will hold a door for a stranger, or do you keep moving and mind your own business? The little, every day things you do will give away your mannerisms. While everyone has a hasty moment of being in their own world, the attention you pay to others and the way you react makes all the difference. Tell us how nice you are, and we'll tell you if your passport needs an American flag or a maple leaf!
