About This Quiz

Sure, maybe the battle between the North and the South reached its peak during the Civil War, but there are still way too many differences to count between these two regions of our country.  Of course, the North is a bit more varied. You're going to find a lot of cultural differences between a cop walking the beat in New York City and a lobsterman working out of Deer Isle Maine, but there is no doubt they are going to be a lot more similar to each other than they would to anyone from the South.

Do you say that things are "wicked cool" or do you say "Y'all'?" Do you pride yourself on your hospitality or do you wonder why people won't get the heck out of your way? When you see a snake, do you get a little creeped out, or do you run for your life screaming? Are you more likely to be found at a Dunkin' Donuts in the morning or would you be at a Bojangles' Famous Chicken 'n Biscuits? Do you root for the Red Sox or the Braves? If you have a pickup truck, is it because you're going muddin' or because you need to plow your driveway? Take this quiz to find out whether your personality belongs more in the North or the South.
