Maybe Texans could use a few more inhibitions. (image via Time)
Using information from over one million personality tests, researchers have put together the above map, showing what kind of temperaments people have in different states. The results broke the country into three distinct personality regions: "New England and the Mid-Atlantic states, which the researchers termed 'temperamental and uninhibited'; the South and Midwest, which were labeled 'friendly and conventional'; and the West Coast, Rocky Mountains and Sun Belt, described as 'relaxed and creative.'"
Dear god. How much money, time, and energy were spent to determine that the Midwest is "friendly and conventional." Literally one 90-minute layover in Chicago could tell you that.
Time Magazine has put together this short personality quiz to help you find out which state in our great nation you should be living in. Unfortunately, the test does not come with a guarantee that the problem is your state, not you. I'm from Texas but live in New York, so naturally the quiz said I should live in Vermont. I'm going to retake it until I get California.
