Idaho.

I'd like to see a more scientific version of this created by aggregating huge numbers of responses to etiquette questions from people around the country, like that NYTimes dialect quiz.

I got Lousiana...interesting. Born and raised in California but maybe the Tennessee is rubbing off. :P

"You are incredibly polite on the face of it, but when someone really deserves it, you know how to be as cutting as possible. You're a good person with impeccably gracious good manners, but you're not a doormat. You just know the difference between "bless your heart," the blessing, and "bless your heart," the deadly insult. That's why you belong in Louisiana!"

I think I'm honestly mostly just a passive, patient human being that is very tired all the time, so I just let things happen around me haha.

I got Idaho.

I have to say though... the quiz is worded very poorly and seems to be aimed more at women specifically (at times).

Many of the questions did not offer me the actual path I would take.

Chicago native...of southern born parents, but Louisiana?
LOL I got Louisiana too. Ironically, I am a New Orleans native who has lived in East Texas for the past 25 years. So yeah, it was pretty accurate for me!

I am from NYC, though I have lived in New Mexico for a long time.

I got Idaho. I kind of like the description for Idaho manners, so I'll take it.

Wasn't sure how to answer the question about what kind of dress I would wear, though.
