Lived in Scotland (Highlands) until I was 12 then moved to England (Midlands) so I have a hybrid Scottish-English accent. Everyone thinks I'm American ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

Depends. Because I'm Swedish, and moved to the UK for school some 10 years ago now, I have a standard British or sometimes RP accent. Standard British most of the time when I'm out and about, intertwined with RP sometimes. Generally RP when someone's annoyed me and I want to intimidate them, like rude customer service, or this is the one I'll use in job interviews as well.

In my head, however, I have a neutral accent, because in Sweden I went to a friskola, that taught the curriculum both in Swedish and English, so subsequently I had a lot of American teachers, so that's the accent I used to have. That's also the accent I generally have when I'm drunk lol.

Just international tings, innit, you're able to pick and choose which one you want to use whenever it fits you best.

Mind, I'm not some sort of natural accent mimicker lol. I speak in standard British or RP through conditioning, I wouldn't be able to do a roadman, or chav accent because that's just not how I grew up.

Haha I said mildly.

I grew up in Leeds. We Leodians don't have strong accents.
BUT I've lived in Barnsley for 11 years, so very occasionally I'll sound slightly more rural than usual. Sometimes it takes me by surprise and I'll correct myself into saying it less Yorkshire-ish.

I really don't. Folk in Barnsley can tell I'm not one of them.

Bland.

I'm from Manchester/Oldham. I'd prefer to have a Manc accent because it's a big part of my identity but I'm glad I escaped the Oldham one at least. Win some lose some.

Mild North-East Scotlandish. Its become stronger since I stopped hanging about posh people and moved back to the slums.
