About This Quiz

So many of us live our lives happily in this current day and age, but still, a lot of people wonder what things would be like if they were born in another era. We all have different things that we are good at, but in which era would we thrive, and in which era would our skills not work out very well?

For example, if you are the type of person that could learn to survive really well in the Stone Age and the Iron Age, then you might not do all that great during the age of Classical Antiquity. And if you were meant to be one of the great scholars, poets or thinkers of the Renaissance, then you probably would not fit in all that great during World War II. 

Of course, there may be a lot of different eras that you could do okay in - you are quite resourceful after all - but where do you really belong? Are you the type that would be instrumental in the incredible industrial progress of the Machine Age, or would you feel way more at home in the free-flowing '60s, when so many changes were made in our society and culture? Take this quiz to find out.
