This quiz is based on a Harvard survey, and it was exceptionally accurate for me. My top 3 cities were San Antonio, Irving, and Arlington. I am from San Antonio raised here since I was a baby. The state that was colored darkest red was Texas.

Link to the quiz.

No one wants to take the dialect quiz? I thought y'all were interested in that kind of stuff.

It asks me to log in, and I'm not interested in creating an account to do so.

I would guess that it does the same for everybody else...?

I'm calling b.s. on this one. According to my results, I'm most similar with Washington D.C., Atlanta, and Columbus, GA. I've never lived even remotely close to any of these places.

However, it also says I'm least similar with Pittsburgh, Worcester, and Springfield, MA. And I did spend part of my childhood living just outside of Springfield, MA.

I'm most similar with Austin, Lubbock, and Houston. Most of the dark red are in eastern side of Texas, and West Texas. Sounds about right for me.

That's just too weird. I DID get a page requiring me to log in. Guess I'll have to miss out on the quiz.....

Took quiz after I adjusted cookie handling in browser.

I'm calling BS on this one, too.....most similar showed Birmingham/Montgomery, AL.....I've never even been to AL.
