Based On Your Personality Which State Should You Live In?
Let's put aside stereotypes and try to focus on important personality traits.
When I was a freshman at Baylor, had to take a personality test before arriving on campus. It was fun to answer dozens of questions about yourself at the exact moment your head couldn't get any bigger... Ahh the graduation glow. These traits were then used to match you with a compatible roommate and help you connect with other people in your dorm. Pretty brilliant. Ever since then, I've been fascinated with personalities.
We all have them. Some big. Some small.
Knowing who we are, where should we live? Truity looked to answer that question by giving us "The Personalities of the 50 States." They surveyed over 12,000 people across the country, looking specifically at the "Big Five" dimensions...
Engaging with the World
Getting Along with Others
Responding to Stress
Using Your Mind
Organizing Your Life
Looking at these five areas, Truity determined that Arkansas stuck out in a few areas. Arkansas has some of the most extroverted people in the country. This may add to the fact that Arkansas is more resilient when it comes to stress than most states.
In addition, Arkansas is filled with people who are hard working. These people are fondly named "The Producers."
