I think it's just the way he tried to copy and paste the results.

That's good enough to understand his results. His General American English is surprisingly low, or maybe mine is just really high.

Well, I've got the lowest so far. Maybe it's a result of too much reading and not enough paying attention to how everyone actually speaks. emoticon

It's an interesting circumstance. Even though the test wouldn't clearly show this by its questions/choices, my observation is that most ESL Asian people speak English with a distinctive "Yankee" accent, most noticeably by dropping R's and elongating the preceding vowel. ("Park" becomes "paaak".)

Just an idea, but perhaps your formative exposure to English was from ESL parents and other Chinese-American relatives and family friends.? Looking at your score split, it would seem plausible that you could be heavily weighted on both GAE and Y, between home and American schools, friends, and media.

45% General American English
30% Yankee

Then there's the fact I actually lived in Pennsylvania for a couple of years when I was aged four through six or so…
