About This Quiz

Trends have been around for almost as long as humans have. From the white faces and the top hats of the woman and men of the 1800s to the braided flower crowns and bell bottoms of the 1970s, once something has managed to become "in style" it becomes a trend. No, trends can be more than just fashion choices. In fact, they can be anything from an activity to a saying to a job to a food. 

So, we're going to ask you about them all. Did you use to say "groovy baby" back in the 70s, if you were even alive at that time? Are you one of the many people who die for avocado toast? Did you ever try the fire or Kylie lip challenge? And did you quit your job to start a YouTube channel like so many people did a few years ago? 

To guess your age correctly, we'll need you to answer these questions as truthfully as possible. We'll then analyze what you choose and come up with an age that explains why you picked what you picked. So if you're ready for us to make an educated guess as to what your age could be based on the trends you've followed, let's get started on this quiz.
