Building on regional clustering of Big Five traits in Switzerland (N = 8,414), personality–fit with one’s geographical region was shown to predict quality of life over time. Participants with moderate Euclidian distance from, but high profile correlations with their environment’s profile reported the greatest well-being. Thus, we point to the merit of fit constructs in psychogeographical contexts.
