The Birmingham accent is considered to be one of the most unintelligent, a ComRes poll found, with both the joint fewest people saying they find it intelligent and nearly 33% saying they find it unintelligent.
62% of people believe Received Pronunciation (the Queen's English) sounds intelligent, far ahead of the second placed Edinburgh accent, which two in five (38%) find intelligent.
