I saw this yesterday on Postcards from the Mothership, and was intrigued by the idea that you could have your linguistics assessed without anyone having to actually listen to you speak. That's kind of like having someone paint a picture of your kids by asking you random questions about hair colour and height but not letting you see what they're doing so you can correct their inaccuracies.
So here's my result:

North Jersey? New York City? Seriously??
I figured I'd end up with 'North Central' -- the Fargo-like accent that has speakers 'often mistaken for Canadians'. I have a friend from upstate New York named Paula. Once, on the phone I mistook her for another Paula, this one from Newfoundland. Both have accents. Neither one sounds like the other, and I don't sound like either. I just sound...normal.
Except in French class. Then I have a really bad English accent. Sérieusement.
