    Yes, it's the Big Five (OCEAN). I don't know if the error was Florida's or whoever came up with the title, but while there are some correlations between the two, they are not the same.

    The "which state you belong in" test is apparently based on a few items from the big five inventory.

    I looked over the JPSP article presenting the actual research. They had two samples in which participants did the big five, two that did a ten-item version with sometimes iffy reliability (this may be the same test used in the "which state" test?), and one that completed a different measure. It's really not my field of expertise so I can't comment on the research itself, but I was surprised that the authors did not discuss possible limitations of their work.

    Anyway, I got New Mexico. I don't think I belong there.

    Utah - which is kind of funny, because when we went to Utah for Adult Nationals a few years ago, I remarked to my Mom that I could see myself living in Salt Lake City if I ever wanted to get out of Michigan.

    Montana - probably because of my quiet, independent streak. Haven't ever been there, but with Glacier National Park, I think I would be happy. However, I do like big cities so....
