  1. The test says I am from the Northeast. Huh? North Carolina born, bred, and raised. And proud of it.

    I'll be damned, they got it right. "Inland North" = Great Lakes. Cleveland born & bred. Interesting that for all the same/different questions I answered the latter.

    Judging by how you talk you are probably from north Jersey, New York City, Connecticut or Rhode Island. Chances are, if you are from New York City (and not those other places) people would probably be able to tell if they actually heard you speak.

    Got that right.

  4. When I took this several months ago, I was from "The South." I don't suspect anything's changed much.

  5. I, too, got Northeast. I was born there and lived there as a teen, so the accent must have lingered.

    I apparently have a North Central, or Minnesota accent. "Outsiders probably mistake you for a Canadian a lot."

    Funny--I am Canadian, but people often misidentify my accent.
