About This Quiz

Even if you're not from California, you probably know a bit about the culture of the nation's third-largest state. But do you know enough to ace this California-isms quiz? There's only one way to find out. Let's get started.

With an economy larger than many countries, California is in a class of its own, with mannerisms that are unique to the people who live there. From a blase view of earthquakes (not if you've ever watched a doomsday movie on Netflix) to liberal politics, the citizens of California make their own rules and set their own pace. And, assuming that the entire west coast is not going to slide off into the Pacific Ocean any time soon, California and the people who live there are going to be minding their own unique business for a long time to come.

So, yeah, brush up on your California stereotypes (hey, they come from somewhere, right), and let's find out which ones are true and which ones aren't. And, if you're a California native, no offense, man, but those Beach Boys told the rest of us all we needed to know about you.

Do you think you know enough about California and its people to ace this quiz? Let's find out.
