if you have an accent, do you know it?

I've always wondered about this. Certain areas of the US have regional accents that are fairly strong, but that is the way everyone talks in those areas, so it must sound normal. Do the people in those areas think they have accents or do they think they speak correctly and everyone else has an accent?

I live in Northern California and so everybody I hear talking sounds like they have no accent,  however everybody from the South sounds like they have a strong accent. Do people who live in the South think the same thing? Do they think there is a "California accent"?
