Geography of Personality

By Richard Florida

MapScoll links to a series of "new and improved" maps of Big Five personality types from the expanded (Canadian) edition of my book Who's Your City?. Based on data collected by Cambridge University psychologist Jason Rentfrow and his collaborators, these new maps ignore state and national boundaries and include the U.S. and Canada.


The first maps agreeable types.

The second charts conscientious personalities.

The third is for extroverts who are more likely to move according to Rentfrow and company's research.

The fourth maps open-to-experience personality types, also more likely to move.

The fifth is for neurotics.
