About This Quiz

Both of these fundamental aspects of life on Earth have expansive qualities. Standing on the shore or taking in a vast sky are sure to put things into perspective and help you to see just how small your problems really are. These features of the environment have also picked up plenty of associated qualities over the years. We'll take those archetypal associations and pair you up with the big blue space that fits you the best.

If you're a very deep person, someone who spends countless hours contemplating the big-picture questions of life, there's a good chance that the sea may be calling to you. If you own a boat and you spend a lot of time out on the water, we'll consider that we're definitely on the right path with your result. Should you mention that you feel compelled to live near a body of water in some form, then we're likely to be convinced that you belong to the ocean.

On the other hand, if you are a highly logical and intellectual person whose mind flies up into the rarefied air, it seems likely that the sky is where you're meant to be. When you mention that you're a practical person and someone who plans things out in detail ahead of time, were definitely looking above the horizon for you.
