Are you living in the ‘wrong’ country for your personality?

<***>

I wonder if something can be said for one’s individual personality traits and the type of traits that are rewarded in different societies. For example, if your nature is to be extremely generous, then you might be happier in a place where this is encouraged and given the highest social value, compared to a place that simply recognises it and welcomes it.

So we can say that your happiness and well-being may partly depend on if you ‘match’ the society you live in. You may be in a society that matches your personality, or you well-being may be improved if you lived in a different one. Would love to get your thoughts on this!
