About This Quiz

In terms of classifying people, there are so many ways of doing it. But from a sociological standpoint, experts have outlined several generations that have appeared on this planet since the 1900s. However, we seem to be more familiar with three prominent ones, since most of us are in them, one way or another!

If you look at the way each of these generations is characterized, you could then understand fully and deeply how certain types of people think, behave and feel. That's because people in certain age ranges have shared cultures, shared events and shared traditions that we all grew up with. One could say we are all victims of circumstance, for sure. But we are all definitely the products of our specific times.

So what are these three generations? There's the so-called Baby Boomer generation, of course, which most of our parents or even grandparents belong to. Then there's the Generation X, the batch that helped made the digital world possible before entering the digital age. Then, of course, there are the Millennials, who all grew up within the digital era already. 

We know enough about these three gens, so we're confident we can tell where you're at, here! Let's start this quiz, shall we, and see!
