About This Quiz

The world is changing very rapidly these days and has been ever since the Industrial Revolution. For many centuries before that, generally speaking, you lived a pretty similar life to your grandparents, who in turn, lived a pretty similar life to theirs. Sure, there were wars and all sorts of political re-alignments, and every so often an ecological collapse or adjustment meant people had to move or change their ways. 

However, things typically settled quickly back into a new status quo, that, for the common man and woman, looked almost exactly like the old status quo. The vast majority of people were born, lived, and died, all within a 20-mile radius.

This is no longer the case. We can no longer assume that we will do the same jobs as our forefathers and foremothers. This means that we have the privilege and responsibility of making choices on a scale that they could only begin to imagine having to do. 

Thanks to alliances and free trade agreements, one of the wonderful options this has opened up for us is the opportunity to live in places our ancestors could only imagine. We can choose cultures that suit us where the economic and romantic opportunities are myriad. So let's find the right ones for you!
