    seriously... nothing's more traumatic than to be told to "mind your manners" all the time when you're a young ESTP

    I have no outstanding accent unless I'm extremely tired or drunk, and my jaw goes all lazy on me and I revert to this weird Maine/Boston accent where R's literally drop out of my vocabulary and I sound mentally disabled. I also tend to talk like a stoner in this case on top of it all. It always starts with a simple word and I'll say, "That's queah." (Instead of queer) or "Weahd" and all my friends start to say, "Oh geez, you gotta get to bed." If i'm in another area my accent tends to gravitate towards those around me.

    I don't like Maine accents and very very strong, slow Southern accents. I dislike New Jersey accents. I also dislike accents that are so mixed that it sounds almost fake or like the person is making fun of someone. Don't mind most other accents, though!

    Ha ha ha... that is amazing.

    I actually really like the different New England accents. I one time was passing by a group of people with one of those colonial-era tour guides, a woman dressed in a period gown with a little parasol and as I got closer her words were coming out in the heaviest of South Boston accents... "and then I MEARRIED him when I was twenty-fo-ah."

    Priceless.



    I looooove hearing the different ways that people pronounce things. I actually really like American accents from the South...
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    haha. I like them too. Just not when they are really extreme. I'm also a frequent abuser of the word "wicked"
