Just the Answer

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, 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.

How could they possibly know I have a good voice for TV or radio from a 13 question quiz? I'm not doubting the results. I'm just saying it's a rather presumptuous statement. The data are accurate enough, the methods are suspect.
