As they say, there's no denying your roots! Answering our questions about yourself during this quiz will give us a good idea of where you came from. Whether you still live in your hometown or not, the answers you give us will help us to hone in with accuracy. 

We won't make it easy by asking general questions about your location. If we asked you for direct hints, it wouldn't be very much fun! Instead, we are going to try to find your hometown using only your personality, a few general hometown questions, and the things you remember with fond nostalgia. 

Growing up somewhere leaves an indelible impression on our psyche. Even when we move thousands of miles away, there are always things that prove where we came from. It's almost like our minds have been imprinted with the unique aspects and values of the places we grew up. 

As we try to figure out where you called home during your formative years, we need to know about the things you find comforting. Once we have enough information, we are sure we'll know where you came from. All you have to do is be as honest, and give us a chance! Let us prove that we know where you grew up!
