On the other hand, I believe that this is true:
I had the impression that the quiz was mostly trying to tell whether I was from Arkansas or Wisconsin, not whether I was from Brooklyn or the Bronx. It would have been better if it had branched out into different questions, depending on your answers to previous questions.
As for my accent, I have a "Midland" accent. Here's what it has to say about that: "'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."
TV and radio! Nice! The two places I spent most of the time (Boston and California) come in 4th and 6th out of 8 on the strength of my accent.
