What kind of accent do I have?

I was talking about accents with someone the other day and they sent me this quiz. I tend to tell people that my accent is pretty neutral, "I don't have an accent" but, the fact of the matter is that I pick up accents. Wherever I go, I start speaking like the people there.

Who knows how accurate this is except that the top two influences "the West" and "the South" fit my theory. I've spent the most time in the West but, most recently I've lived with a whole bunch of Southerners (and loved it) and their accents started to rub off on me.
