Well that was weird....
Even though is seemed every answer favored the Great Lakes region, northeast area, etc, where I have lived all my life, I'm only 45% yankee.

I know Uncle Bob.... That's a good thing....

Jeeze, I was born in Iowa, lived most of my live there except the last 15 years spent in Illinois. Never lived in the south but visited there once for 5 months on business. And yet, I get a score of 58% Dixie (barely into the Dixie category).
I think I should have gotten Yankee there, ya think?? LOL.

Yea, which is what surprised me about my results. A lot of my answers got "Great Lakes Region or Northeast", a few got "Midwest", and only a couple got "southeast" or "southern".

But hey I guess UB will be proud!

I think a "dixie" wrote that test to mess with us

And where did this term "dixie" come from? First time I ever heard it.
Isn't it still politically correct to call them Johnny Rebs

Mine came back as 45% Yankee with emphasis on the Northeast where I have never lived.

It's a fun test, but I don't think I'll take it too seriously

Okay, Uncle Bob, we're waiting for you!

Yeh, me too Pacanis. Spent 43 formative years in Jersey, yet they say 59% dixie, barely into Dixie Catagory.

And I never heard of that bug. Still don't know what they're talking about.
