Accent Quiz is On The Mark

I found this "American accent" quiz via Manhattan Chowder. It did not fail to communicate accurate results.

What I learned: American broadcasters are trying to mimic my low-brow Midland accent.

Who knew?
What American accent do You have?

My Results: "Midland"

("Midland" is not necessarily the same thing as "Midwest") The default, lowest-common-denominator American accent that newscasters try to imitate. Since it's a neutral accent, just because you have a Midland accent doesn't mean you're from the Midland.

I have a midland accent as well. The only place I've been to in in that section is Harpers Ferry, WV. And that was only for a couple hours. I was born and raised in Los Angeles. How odd.
