About This Quiz

Whether the majority of your manners come from your nature or your nurture, some of them come from your experiences. After you tell us all about your southern charms or your northern niceties, we'll know which of the 50 states is the right state for you. Are you currently residing there, or will you need to rethink your location?

Each of the states has its own personality and certain traits that are associated with it. Even manners are said to differ across the country. For instance, the American South is known as one of the most polite places on earth. The northeast, however, is known to play by a different set of rules. Once we dig through the way you conduct yourself during your everyday life, we'll be able to place you in the state where you really belong!

Do you eat with your elbows on the table, or would you rather never leave home again? Do you hold the door for others, or do you let them get it for themselves? Tell us how polite you are, or are not, and we will tell you which state you should call your home. Where will you be a natural fit?
