About This Quiz

For most of us, high school was a painful time of chrysalis, when we changed from our child-selves into Adult 1.0. It was a time of experimentation. We experimented with hairstyles, clothing styles, vices, friends, significant others, and through those experiments, we began to learn what really mattered to us, who we really were, and how we wanted to move on with the rest of our lives.

During this time, we may make new friends with whom we remain tight the rest of our lives, or we may only have a few passing friendships that dissolve, giving way to more meaningful ones in college. In high school, we find our first "crowd," be it a team, a club, or just a bunch of kids who sit together at lunch. Our schools give us meaningless things to rail against, like uniforms and running in the halls, so we can learn to deal with things we can't change in a space where protest doesn't result in serious consequences. We learn, in baby steps, how to be adults.

We worked out a quiz that we think will tell us what you were like in high school. Our experiences are pretty universal, so we have a lot of confidence in this. Do you think we have what it takes to ID you? We do. Take our quiz!
