Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

Are you in the wrong place? I am, apparently…

State mood map

I found this pretty interesting, and disconcerting. You take a brief personality test and find out which state best suits you. Turns out that Utah is a pretty great place (most agreeable and least neurotic), while Wisconsin is a hub for extroverts. Who knew?

I learned that I belong in North Carolina. Which is strange, because I feel right at home here in California. I guess I could make a go of it in Asheville…

As for my wife? She belongs in Georgia. Maybe we could visit each other on weekends. Or we could meet in South Carolina, I suppose.

Or just stay where we are. It’s been working fine.

So where do you belong? Take the test and let us know.

    Seems I fit in New York. Go figure.

    Hmmm I am Canadian, can I take the test anyway? ( I love tests! )

  3. I belong in Georgia! I have lived in Athens, so there must be some science behind this test. No?

    Seems I should be in Georgia. Are you sure this isn’t put out by the Georgia Chamber?

      I think you solved the mystery, John! Another marketing ploy disguised as science.

    I thought this would be fun as I don’t live over there but I think it must have known as it wouldn’t let me take the test! Alas! Perhaps this side of the pond is best for me 🙂

      That hardly seems fair! What if you were planning to move here? You’d want to know which state suits you best, wouldn’t you?

      I wonder what English county would suit me best… Always loved the Lake District.

        I’m just South of the Lake District 🙂 I can see the mountains on a clear day. It rains though. A lot

    It says I should live in North Carolina. Hmm, I currently live in Ohio and was born in Tennessee. Guess I have been missing going too far north to find home. Well perhaps you I could be neighbors?

      We can hook up for coffee and wonder how we got there… ;o)

    Interesting – it claims I should be in Oregon. Wonder what state of mind would happen with a retake… (smile)

      At least that’s pretty close to where you are! I’m completely across the country… Huh? Wha?

    Vermont. Kind of makes sense since I spent the first 21 years of my life in upstate NY. I’ve been there once and it is a beautiful state, but I was really really hoping for CA or OR. On the other hand, thank god it’s not Florida 🙂

      Vermont sounds nice. (Better than North Carolina…) We were thinking about living in Vermont a few years ago, till we read about Mud Season.

        Ha ha ha … the Spring Thaw aka Mud Season? I can imagine 😉
