Researchers tried to map the US based on mood. They asked residents of each state to take personality surveys. Some criterion were curiosity and preference for novelty, self-discipline and dependability, sociability and compassion.

Where do you belong based on your mood? Take the quiz and find out

Apparently I belong in Maine. That seems about right. I could see myself living in Maine. I asked my husband about transferring there once but apparently they don't have any US Forest Service offices. With all those trees, who would have thought?

It says I belong in Montana. Interesting. Never been there but have always wanted to go, but don't think I can take living that far from a beach or major city. I was spoiled growing up close to NYC and can't imagine being that far from it. It's really as home to me as NJ is.

I took the quiz, and got...Oregon. Where I live, heh...

So despite occasionally complaining about my state in reality(though I love parts of it as well), I guess for introverted but friendly unconventional types, Oregon is a good fit.

The funny thing was, I went back to the quiz and left the rest of the questions the same yet changed the critical/quarrelsome question from a medium 4 to highly agree 6 and got Washington. Which actually is fairly accurate since people in Seattle and Washington in general tend to be a little more opinionated and agrumentative in some ways than Oregon. But if I then moved up the anxious/easily upset category from 4 to 7--I got New York.

I noticed that as well. The only things separating New York from the West Coast is a few degrees of disagreeability and neuroticism. Who knew?

Honestly, that sounds about right...

Also if you answer every question as "7" or strongly agree(even though these answers would contradict each other), you get Texas as a result. Because everyone in Texas picks the "biggest" answer so they max out each response apparently....
