    Is it possible for me to sort my a certain field, to see for example a set of data that is for everyone who chose their city to be Seattle on a drop down menu question of locations?

    Yes, this is possible in several ways.

    1. You can filter/search your submissions directly on the submissions page of your form:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/269-How-to-view-Submissions

    At the bottom, under the grid/table with your submissions, you can simply enter whatever the term you want to filter your submissions for:

    If you enter "Seattle", it will display only those submissions that have the term "Seattle" in them.

    2. Alternatively to using the submissions page, you can also set up a Visual Report:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/187-How-to-Create-a-Visual-Report-with-your-Form-Submissions

    On the Visual Report of your submissions, you can simply set up a filter to display only specific submissions, based on question and answer:
