About This Quiz

Between Netflix, social media and other forms of digital technology, it feels like the world is getting smaller every day. Now that you can Skype with people across the country (or even work for them as a freelancer), the regional differences that once defined American life are rapidly disappearing. In many ways, the daily lives of a person from Louisiana and a person from Vermont are strikingly similar, even though thousands of miles separate them.

That said, some things will always stay the same, such as the fact that you're either a Yankee or you're not! Modern conveniences will never stop New Englanders from loving cold weather, being obsessed with cider and knowing more about camping by the age of 6 than your average West Coast Eagle Scout. They can't help it: That's just the Yankee way. 

So, we're curious: Are you a Yankee yourself, or are you merely wondering whether you can pass for one? We've carefully designed it to be able to ascertain your exact percentage of Yankee-ness, so don't be surprised if we sniff out any Yankee posers. Ready to do a deep dive on maple candy, baked beans and ice scrapers? Put a feather in your cap and call it macaroni, then take this quiz!
