About This Quiz

People from the North usually just don't get the Southern vibe. Everyone is slow paced, not in a hurry, and chilled out all the time. At the same time, people in the South don't really get what is going on with people in the North. To a Southerner, they seem to always be in a hurry, way too concerned about success and material things, and sometimes they even seem to be just a little bit rude. People in the North are generally assertive, confident, determined, and independent. On the other hand, people in the South tend to be helpful, generous, good-natured, sensitive, patient, and understanding.

Which section of the country does your temperament most belong in? It doesn't matter where you were born, where do you actually belong? You might be a native of Boston and have a temperament that is more suited to chilling out on a porch on a sunny day with a dog at your feet. Or you might be from Georgia and long for excitement and the hustle and bustle of the big city. Take this quiz and we'll tell you whether your temperament is more suited to the North or the South.
