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.

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....
