About This Quiz

While you don't have to be young to be ducking angry when autocorrect changes your words, we think that your texting habits will give away the number of candles on your next birthday cake. You might not give much thought to the way you text, but texting has become a true art form. Everyone texts differently and your texting style will tell us all we need to know.

Younger generations have had the benefit of always being immersed in technology, while some of us still struggle to connect to AOL. As we go through our texting habits quiz, we'll ask you about the frequency you text, the kinds of things you send, and the people you text most. We will also, of course, need to know about any embarrassing mishaps you might have had along the way.

Answer our questions about your texting habits as honestly as you can stand. We won't LOL at you, but we will be able to figure out how old you are based on your text-savvy skills. All you have to do is tell us how you communicate in our technological age, and we'll figure out how many moons you've been on the planet!
