    I got high scores in the Northeast and South. Currently living in Staten Island and worked very hard to ditch that accent when I lived upstate NY. Hope I don't get it back, because it's the worst accent of all. I kinda like Southern

    I worked for a major company and worked with people from all over the country. Got really good at guessing what area they were from. Even guess a gal where she was from that had been in the midwest for over 30 years but one word gave her away.

    Mine was way off, too. I was born and bred in New Orleans (now live in TX and have lived in the south, all my life) and it pegged me as being from The Midland.
