About This Quiz

Hippies were a life form that existed mostly in the mid to late '60s and early '70s. They weren't hung up on bathing too frequently, were known to indulge in recreational pharmaceuticals and had some interestingly unconventional attitudes about romantic relationships. 

Like many subcultures and groups of like-minded individuals, they had their own lingo and terminology, words they used to describe the world around them that were filtered through their own lens (which was clouded by pot smoke frequently).

Yesterday's hippies are now today's accountants, chairpersons of the board, public officials, and titans of commerce. This should give hope to all of you who despair over the state of today's youth. The hippies also introduced themes of ecological consciousness and tolerance for all that are still powerful parts of the best of our society.
