About This Quiz

According to Hollywood movies, British people generally come in three types. There are posh people with names like Lord Fitzleton Bigby-Snarkley of Lower Bottomley. These folks are uptight, generally sexless, diffident and useless in a crisis - unless they are a villain, in which case they are the second type, in which case they're supremely intelligent and competent, and only ever screw up because they can't resist pausing before the climax of their evil plan to tell James Bond all about it. The third type of British person is non-posh, lives in a gutter, has a barely-real name like Dirk or Chiv or Gov, speaks in a less-than-credible Cockney or Northern accent, and despite their criminal ways, ultimately has a heart of gold.

The reality is that the modern United Kingdom is an incredibly diverse place, and not just linguistically. This means that there exists a huge panoply of types of people, all of them different. However, accent is still one of the things that does tie groups together there, in ways that both delineate and transcend class. That means a Brit's accent is a pretty decent guide to what they're like - and that's a short hop to finding a particular accent pretty darn appealing. It's time to figure out which one tickles you the most!
