Neutrality R Us

In the D&D Char quiz that was going around again, I kept coming out as "True Neutral" (by the graphs I wasn't evil at all and only mildly chaotic, but still had more neutral answers than good or lawful). My results for the "which sort of American accent" quiz (which I found from fangirl715) seem to follow along:

What American accent do you have?

Neutral. Not Northern, Southern, or Western, just American. Your national American identity is more important to you than your local identity, because you don't really have a local identity to begin with.

Take this quiz now - it's easy!
We're going to start with "cot" and "caught." When you say those words do they sound the same or different?

Huh, what do you know, I come out as Northern, either upstate New York or western Massachusetts. Since I was born in western Massachusetts and grew up in upstate New York, I guess that's an entirely correct answer! I have a regional accent--cool!

Spot on, for you! ^_^

Pretty spot on for me, too. I grew up in Virginia, but my father was from Philadephia (yet without the strong Philly accent of some of his siblings) and I never developed much of a Southern accent. Then moved to the Boston area for college and after, but I guess was too old by then to pick up any Boston accent, "Hahvahd" or Southie or otherwise.

But my husband, who was born in Boston and grew up in western Massachusetts, somehow got tagged as having a Southern accent? weird

I guess part of it, too, depends on your ear--how you hear yourself. Plus, I do think a person can be influenced by their friends, etc. Maybe your husband has friends with Southern accents?
