If you’ve ever wondered if you’re actually living in right place, the geniuses over at Time magazine have devised a quiz that will tell you the best U.S. state for you to live in, based on a 10-question personality test. The quiz assesses qualities like openness, creativity, and discipline to come up with a range of states that best suit your demeanor.

As the map illustration suggests, every state has been rated and ranked by mood and temperament by a “multinational team of researchers” at the University of Cambridge in the U.K. They  “literally mapped the American mood, with state-by-state ratings of personality and temperament.” By answering the 10 questions in the quiz, the algorithm matches you up to the states that would best suit your personality and lifestyle. For example, the most neurotic Americans, apparently, live in West Virginia; while the most open-minded people live in Washington, D.C.
