How Southern are YOU?

I took the questions from this quiz from a book called What's your Southern I.Q. by Ellen Patrick. The book is a points-based system, but that was not an option here, so I had to use a percentage. Get the book and take the complete quiz to discover your southern I.Q. The following paragraph is taken from the introduction of this book.

"Testing one's Southern I.Q. is not a scientific study, but rather a social study of one's knowledge and understanding of a particular region of the United States: the South. Geographical and cultural characteristics differentiate the South from the rest of the country... The results of this test are not finite. If you are unsatisfied with your level of "southerness," use what you learn from this test to enhance your southern flavor."
