About This Quiz

If you were born in America, or if you have become a citizen here, then you're an American. But what does it really mean to be a true American? Is there really such a thing? We think so. Whether you consider yourself a staunch conservative on the right, or a liberal on the left, whether you are all about the hustle of New York City, or the mellowness of Los Angeles, whether you're all about Southern charm in Georgia, or surviving blizzards on the coast of Maine, there are still a few things people do that most  would agree make one a true American.

Now, don't get us wrong, if you don't score high on this quiz, it doesn't mean that you have to pack up and move to Russia, or who knows, maybe you would choose Bermuda, it just means you aren't quite as in touch with doing things that make one a typical American as others might be. So, whether you're into apple pie, hot dogs, pick up trucks, country music, and football might be the kinds of things that make you a true American, there are a lot of other things that are a little more subtle about your personality that might mean you're one too. Take this quiz and let's find out where you stand.
