About This Quiz

An integral element of the human condition is that we often have underlying feelings or instincts that affect nearly every portion of our lives. If we ignore these instincts, things start to feel "off." Maybe you're a little extra clumsy when you normally have the agility of a cat injected with caffeine. Maybe you feel like you don't belong, no matter what you do. When you find yourself where you don't belong, but you aren't exactly sure why, you can start looking for answers in the instincts and feelings that you've been ignoring. 

Where we live is a major factor in how we perceive the world, how we interact with others socially, and how we understand ourselves. That's not to say that everyone should be living in California; however, if everyone figures out where they belong based on their personal needs, they can find exactly what puts those little instincts and feelings at peace, balancing their lives to help them focus on what is important with a clear head. For all you know, your soul is bound to a completely different state... maybe even one that you've never been to. That soul of yours yearns for more (or less), and your instincts are trying to tell you something. If you're having trouble finding the place where you fit in, answer these questions, and we'll tell you all about your soul state.
