Not very close for me, the test makers probably don't realize that there are old people who grew up in southern Palm Beach County and still live there.

It identifies your dialect, not where you were born.

Ahhh yes, the THT "Brain Trust"....

If you call a sub sandwich a hoagie, you are most likely from around the Phila area.

Born and raised in Atlanta but it picked Indianapolis and St Louis. Irish and German ancestors were from the mid-western states and we didn't speak Southern at all growing up so that probably fooled it.

It thinks I'm from Tacoma, Washington when in fact I'm from a city in a whole other country...

...about 50 miles away from Tacoma.

Most similar: Greensboro, Chattanooga, and Montgomery.

Least similar: Worcester



I'd say nailed it. I'm from Winston-Salem/High Point. And certainly don't talk like a Worcester Yankee

Not sure where Chattanooga comes into play...

Mine said either Pittsburgh or San Jose/Freemont CA. Basically, the entire US was red/orange except for New Orleans and Massachusetts/Rhode Island. Even Area 51 in Nevada was red - maybe that says something. I answered at least 3 things 'I have never heard of such a thing'. I found it more interesting that it asked me different questions than my wife - and they had where she grew up within 30 miles.

Not even the right state, but at least it got The South correct.
