Midland...How Embarrassing

Whoa, my Southern credentials are very much in question.

But my dad was from upstate New York, and my mom from Southern Indiana. It's their fault.

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana (BINGO! THAT'S THE GUERNSEY HOMELAND!), southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

Alas, the phone interview doesn't happen until the 12th. The good news is that if I get the offer from SLU I don't have to do the phone interview. The bad news is that they keep flying in additional candidates.

I don't think that quiz works all that well, to be honest.

I also had a Midlands accent. I also think the quiz must be a little off...

I'm a bona fide Southerner (11 years in Mississippi, 12 in Georgia) and the thing rated me as being from the West. I'm not even sure which answers would have made me be rated as a Southerner.
