About This Quiz

One of the things that makes the United States among the most popular destinations for tourism in the world is its diversity. On one continent, you can visit spectacles like the Grand Canyon, lush forests in the Pacific Northwest or glittering concrete towers in major metropolitan cities on the East Coast.

And just like these various parts of the nation are different from each other, each region has a distinct personality as well. 

If you've traveled to different parts of the U.S., you've observed the differences firsthand. People in the Northeast tend to be more hurried and brusquer, while Southerners have more patience and emphasize politeness and manners. West Coast states like California are associated with increased spirituality, open-mindedness and a connection to the outdoors. But if you asked a blue-collar worker in the Midwest to adopt the morning yoga routine of someone living in Southern California, they might look at you pretty strangely.

None of these attitudes or personalities are right or wrong, of course—just different. If you've ever wondered whether you belong among the skyscrapers of Broadway or the rolling plains of the heartland, we've got an answer for you! All you have to do is give us the details on your personality, and we'll match you up with the part of America you belong in!
