I came out at 55% which I think is about right. Did feel a bit of a foreigner when I went back to the UK just recently.

70% but to be fair I was wearing my pith hat and singing Jerusalem when I took the test.

Congrats, mate. You're are probably British.
(If not, definitely Australian. Or Kiwi. Or Canadian.)

Got 60% but it said the above - so I'm well chuffed!

70% and it said I DEFINITELY not Aussie, kiwi or a boring Canadian - I am so happy I'm off for a cup of tea, Earl Grey, and a jam sandwich.

And you think I'm kidding

I was 55% too, did you read what it said though, which isn't all that surprising but spot on

You enjoy most aspects of mainstream British culture, without being stereotypical about it.
You also have a typical British temperament. You wouldn't dream of being impolite.

Default Re: How British are you these Days.

Well, that's a turn up for the books, I scored 55%. More than some of the Brit expats here But it does say, if you're not a Brit then you're probably Australian, Kiwi or Canadian.
