Abstract

In this chapter, we argue that making housing decisions with which people feel comfortable will partly depend upon people knowing themselves and using that knowledge to decide whether, when and where to move. We give examples of people who judged whether housing options suited their personality, would allow them to pursue their chosen lifestyles and would enable them to keep in close contact with people who make their lives meaningful. In terms of lifestyles, people spoke about significant routines, hobbies and activities.
