In Which State Should You Live (Short, Interesting Quiz)

Sunday, October 27, 2013

This probably has nothing to do with Spark, but I found this fascinating.

Here is a quiz that asks a few basic personality questions. Based on your responses, it tells you in which State you should live. (Canadian and overseas Sparkies, the Ugly Americans once again are self-centered, but you are accustomed to that).



Here it is. Post your results below.

de-to-americas-moods/


So I took the quiz myself, a couple of times. Although I'd tell you that I'd make the worst and most disgruntled Southerner in the world (my liberal, Obama-loving blue-bellied Yankee values run deep), this quiz, repeatedly landed me in (of all places) Georgia. Doubtlessly as a flamethrower-wielding member of Sherman's Union Army, but Georgia nevertheless. Um, when in Rome "Eat a Peach."



How about you? (My wife, Susan818127 here on Spark, also just took it and landed in North Carolina. At least we are so-to-speak neighbors (and members of the occupying army, from the War of Northern Aggression as they call it down there)

    It says California on the first runthrough, and I didn't take the longer OCEAN test.). I've lived in Cali before (student, not resident), so I am ambivalent. I've always known I feel like a fish out of water here in the state jeer I live (not my birth state.).

    I should strive to improve my mental state instead of worrying what state I physically live in!!

    This was fun!!

    Makes me think that all the good people live in Georgia...then I remember my 2nd husband (born & raised in Covington, GA - the only town spared by Sherman cause his academy roomie was from there) and I think 'hmmmmmmmmm, maybe not'.

    I'm not moving. emoticon

    I came up with West Virginia! I have to admit I do enjoy our annual visit there over the Labor Day weekend for DW's family reunion!

    My mom posted this on fb this weekend. I got South Carolina. I'm not a northerner or southerner, so I guess SC would work for me. Maybe just Charleston..

    New Mexico, relaxed and creative. Which is pretty accurate, but I too am "blue bellied Yankee" originally from New England, I'd miss the seasons for sure!

    I belong in North Carolina.

    Native Texan here with about 200 years NC roots! Felt at home there on first visit at age 16. Have hummed & sung "Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina in the morning." since the 1960's. Lived in NC in my 20s for one year. Last visit for family reunion in 2000. Grandfather from NC, eldest of 14, came to Texas by 1904.

    That was fun.

    I truly think this thing was cooked up by Georgia tourism. I got one Massachusetts, one Pennsylvania, two Texas, and no fewer than eight Georgia.

    I even totally randomized the answers by spinning a wheel.

    First try was North Carolina..second try was Nebraska.. Nuh-uh. I have been in both states and neither are an option for me,,,

    I am thinking they need to do a more meaningful study, like the percentage of domestic murders during TOM for husbands who tell their wives to quit whining. Now THAT is relevant!! I think I can save them time and money: Door number one:100%! DINGDINGDINGDINGDING!!!

    Stuck me in Georgia too. I would DIE there!!!! Seriously!

    I think the problem, of course, is the test. I mean, does enthusiastic necessarily equate with extroverted? I'm very enthusiastic - but I'm very introverted, too. The test links personality traits that, for some or many of us, are polar opposites. Therefore, the test computer gets a false image of how we score ourselves.

    Well I ended up in Georgia. I'm a 5 generation Southern California girl. I've never been to the Southeast. I'll have to add that to my bucket list.
    Thanks for the fun diversion.

    I wasn't sure how strongly I agreed or disagreed with many of the questions, so I took it twice. Apparently I belong in WV. I've visited there a couple if times for snow skiing. Nice place.

    I guess I should be a snowbird. I'm not going anywhere. First try landed me in Florida and second attempt was New Mexico.

    I got California which really surprised me. So I started playing with it to see what kind of person would be best suited for SC where I live.

    Extroverted - 7
    Critical - 1
    Dependable - 7
    Anxious -7
    Open to new experiences - 7
    Quiet - 1
    Sympathetic - 7
    Disorganized - 1
    Calm - 1
    Uncreative - 1

    I'm sure this can be tweaked a little bit and it would still be SC but thinking about it, I think this might be right. While there are a lot of very loud, very neurotic people here, I have met some of the sweetest most compassionate people I've ever met since moving here. If they like you, that's it. You're family. Just don't mind the crazy. emoticon

    Well, Pal, I'm a Georgian, too. Liberal, Obama-loving, Californis girl, Giants fan. I took the test twice. Joe is from Florida, a weird idea if ever there was one).

    I wonder what you have to do to live in Cali?

    New Mexico. Hmm. I'd miss the pacific northwest! I'm willing to visit, though.

    It said Georgia for me too. I KNOW that's wrong. I make most liberals look strict!

    Canada's a state of mind . . . and yeah, best possible state to live in!! (Just leavening the non-US exclusion with a little American style chauvinism, which is pretty foreign to that Canadian state of mind actually . . . )

    I took it twice. I landed in Tennessee the first time, then took the expanded test, and then the state one again and land in Utah! I cannot see me living there at all.

    I demand a recount! The quiz puts me in Maine. On some counts it makes sense, if there is validity to the researcher's ratings/definitions/descriptions, but not all five factors are accurate enough when applied to me. I'm not naming them, however.

    Georgia for me. However, after traveling through Georgia many times, it has not seemed like a place I'd like to put down long term roots.

    I saw this on yahoo the other day and it put me in Florida. My Dad is from the Northeast and my Mom was from California. I have lived in Utah most of my life so I though Florida was a happy medium between the three. Afterall, lots of people go to Florida to retire so there must be a mix of individuals there.

    I did it once and landed in New Mexico. Did it again and landed in Pennsylvania.

    Ha! It put me in Florida, which at first made me mad, but then I realized that tons of people from NJ, NY and PA live in Florida, so it makes a sort of sense!
