About This Quiz

Each generation is famous for something different, whether it be the world wars, the internet or the incessant need to use technology. But there are also incredibly important pop culture moments that happened in each generation. But whether you were around for Beatlemania or you're just now into Cardi B, sometimes your tastes don't reflect the period you were born in. You might liken it to someone telling you that you have an old soul - or that you seem like you were born in a different time. 

Well, this is exactly that, except here, we're trying to find your generation based on what you like in the pop culture world. Will your tastes say that you're a Gen X-er? These people were born during the peace and love movement and like things with a little less tech. The millennials are the go-getters and are responsible for some of the most innovative business ideas out there today. The Gen Z-ers are just now coming into their own, and we can expect a lot from them. But which one are you?

If you want to find out which generation you're more of, based on the type of mass media you prefer, let's go ahead and get started on this quiz. You may be younger than you think!
