What American accent do you have?

Once upon a time, I spoke like Matt and Ben in "Goodwill Hunting". However, spending 3 years in Atlanta, GA after college beat most of the Boston accent out of me. I spent most of the first year in Atlanta repeating myself endlessly because people could not understand what I was saying to them.

Word choices like "tonic" meaning soda or talking about my cahhhhh perplexed and confounded everyone I met. Eventually I subdued my accent (although it can manifest at the most inconvenient moments).

I thought it was interesting that although the quiz notes I have a "midland" accent - the next most likely accent was from Boston. Take the quiz and let me know your results.
