I don't usually care for quizzes, but this one was interesting.

What American accent do you have?

Midland. The Midland (please don't confuse with "Midwest") itself is the neutral zone between the North and South. But just because you have a Midland accent doesn't mean you're from there. Since it is considered a neutral, default, "non-regional" accent you could easily be from someplace without its own accent, like Florida, or a big city in the South like Dallas, Houston, or Atlanta.

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?

Yes, I do live in a big city in the South (Houston), but I don't talk like Houstonians. Honestly, the white people around here sound like Texans. (The black people sound, well, black. Very strongly black. I guess that's a Deep South accent?)

I talk like my mom, who's from Cincinnati. So, this quiz was spot on! (Well, multi-state-region on.)
