About This Quiz

Can you differentiate the generations? Do you know where to locate Generation X between the years? Let us help you there.

Different organizations and companies peg the years differently. But their markers aren't that too far off. That's why it's safe to assume the birth range of each generation.

For instance, when we say millennials, that's the kiddos born during the '80s and the '90s. They're way past coming of age now; they're already the young faces of today's workforce. The generation that came after them is "Generation Z." They're the ones about to join the workforce or currently in school. 

Baby boomers came way before everyone else. This is the population born after World War II or thereabouts. They know life after the war, and it was a hard life for many. But they persevered and made something out of themselves, too. Creating a nuclear family was a priority (hence the term); it was also a natural reaction from a society recovering from the losses of war. 

After the boomers, there's Generation X. People who belong to this category saw the world change from being analog to being digital. They were at the forefront of the booming computer era. They were also responsible for creating some of this tech advancements. They know the value of hard work and realize the importance of relaxation, too. Does this sound like you?
