About This Quiz

The questions in this quiz were created using a random question generator. So, in every sense of the phrase, this is a random quiz. That being said, we think that we can guess your generation from your answers, no matter what the questions are.

For example, if we get the sense that you're a bit overwhelmed by the pacing of modern society and you yearn for simpler days when people actually talked to each other, it seems clear that you are a Baby Boomer. When you start throwing in cultural references from the '50s and '60s, we'll be assured that we're on the right path.

On the other hand, if you use the word "gnarly" at any point in the conversation, that will be a red flag that you're likely a Gen Xer. When you begin making references to the pop culture of the '70s and '80s, it will be pretty clear that you've worn plenty of flannel and listened to more than your fair share of grunge music.

Alternatively, maybe you're part of the generation that everyone seems to be using as a scapegoat for the world's problems. If that statement resonates with you and you spend more of your life in a virtual world than the real one, we're likely to go with a "Millennial" guess.

The time it takes you to figure out how to start this quiz will give us a clue as to which generation you belong to.
