About This Quiz

Age is nothing but a number. Sure, if you're born between a certain set of years, you're definitely a member of Generation Y, who are also known as millennials, but we don't need the calendar to figure out whether you're a part of Generation Y or not. We think we can tell just by asking you some questions about your experiences. Do you love avocado toast? Do you think that the old Nickelodeon was the best TV channel ever? Have you ever been to Coachella? Did you live at home for a while to save money for a house? Do you use the word "Salty" a lot and not because of food? If you answered yes to most of these questions, we think you're probably a proud card-carrying member of Generation Y.

Generation Y gets a bit of a hard time from other generations, but we don't think they deserve it. We happen to think that Gen Y is one of the coolest generations ever. So if you've finished eating your all organic breakfast and you aren't too hangry, maybe you should take this quiz and let us try and guess if you''re in Generation Y or not. After all, YOLO. #coolquiz.
