About This Quiz

One thing is sure when you talk about the different generations: The generation before you gave you a bad start and the generation after you is screwing up everything you worked so hard to fix from those before you. Does that sound familiar? Well, the truth of the matter is that generations are cyclical, and if you wait long enough (75-100 years) the ideals, thoughts and themes of your own will make a comeback.

From how you address strangers, Daddio, to what you consider is the bee's knees, our slang, jargon and colloquialisms are a big part of our generation. Whether you think its rad to do the "Macarena" or far out to do the "Hustle," cultural gaps are often closer than you think, with only a few distinct differences.

Your generation is your fingerprint on the world. It is the mark that defines who you are and tells the world where you are heading or where you've been. Are you a baby boomer? Are you Gen X? Perhaps you're a millennial? Or maybe you're in between and have the clear understanding of multiple generations or a lack of understanding of all.

Answer these questions on your likes, dislikes, fads, slang and more, and we'll tell you which generation you grew up in.
