You're an Honorary Citizen of Which Country?

There are over 190 countries spread across our blue planet, and each one has a unique outlook on life influenced by its history, natural resources, and culture. It's possible that you feel a strong sense of pride and affinity with your country of birth. If you do, congratulations! Not everyone is so lucky. Some people feel like they were born in entirely the wrong place, and others are on the fence with mixed feelings.

This quiz uses facts about countries and a sprinkle of national stereotypes to present possible destinations for you. These places could be perfect for your next extended vacation or any ex-pat adventures you may want to undertake. And who knows? Your forever home might turn out to be on the opposite side of the globe. Buckle up because this ride will have you explore every hemisphere while reflecting on some of your character traits.

Did you know?

Why do different countries and regions have certain personalities?

Well, there are some theories about this. But first things first. It's important to clarify that while each country has distinct general attitudes and behaviors, they often don't match the stereotypes in foreigners' minds. So whatever ideas you have about the French being unapproachable or the Japanese being unfailingly hardworking, lay them by the wayside. It's easy to stereotype your own culture, too, believe it or not.

Research usually focuses on the five major personality traits: extroversion, openness to experience, neuroticism, conscientiousness, and agreeableness. Countries overlap in various ways because human beings aren't easily placed in neatly-labeled boxes. For example, Moroccans as a whole might be relatively introverted, but Masood and Mariam at the souk may be very friendly indeed.

One interesting theory suggests that certain countries like America are home to bolder individuals because of the open-minded, risk-taking genes that compelled previous generations to emigrate.

Population density may also have a role to play. If there are many thousands of people close to where you live, there's more competition. So it makes sense to work together, be more likable, and more diligent. Places acquire character over time and attract like-minded people who reinforce that personality. Fascinating!

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
