63% Dixie - I guess Ohio, Guam and Vermont rubbed off on me a bit

And where did this term "dixie" come from? First time I ever heard it.
That's a joke, right?

Apparently the origin of the term is not known: Dixie - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Wow, all three theories sound plausible to me, GG!

Thanks for posting the link, and thanks, pacanis, for asking a question that never occurred to me!

A short version is…. "'Dixie'" was a currency issued by banks in French Louisiana. They were $10 bills that said Dix (French for 10) on one side… To the people in the South, and flat boatmen who had floated down the Mississippi to sell their goods they were called Dixies...So the area became known as Dixieland…This is the accepted origin of the term around here...What ever.. It's Where I was born. in..Early on One Frosty Mornin...

77% (Dixie). That is a pretty strong Southern score


Hmmm and I was born and raised in Cleveland Ohio, not Cleveland Georgia

I think the whole purpose of the test is to confuse everyone, LOL. If you are a Yankee it makes you think you are a Reb, and if you are a Reb it makes you think you are a Yankee.
They're just messin with us, which is what makes it fun, LOL.

Which part, the part where I put the laughing smiley, or the part where I said I never heard someone referred to as a dixie?

I really don't know who created the test, but it's pretty funny that being a "dixie" seems to be pretty common, even for us northerners....

I've heard of leaving my heart in dixie, and dixieland of course, but no, no movie I ever saw, book I ever read or person I ever talked to referred to a southerner as "a dixie". That's a new one on me.

I have to agree with Pacanis, I have heard of Dixie, Dixieland, etc but never someone being referred to as a Dixie.. so let's coin it and make some fame!
