About This Quiz

Most sociologists agree that people born between 1946 and 1964 are baby boomers, people born between 1965 and 1980 are Generation X and people born between 1981 and 1996 are millennials. But is the truth really so cut and dried? Just because you were born in 1976, doesn't mean you're a cynical nihilist who would rather die than be a corporate drone. Similarly, someone born in 1986 is technically a millennial, but if she isn't comfortable with digital technology and thinks avocado toast is gross, is it really fair to lump her in with millennials who were born 10 years later?

In this quiz, we want to help you figure out to which generation you really belong. We're going to ask you about everything from chunky highlights to Zach Galifianakis to your ideal work style. In return for your honest and thoughtful answers, our supercomputer will calculate the exact percentage of Gen X in your personality. Whether you're practically Gus Van Zant or have the exact taste as Gigi Hadid, this quiz will illuminate your true cultural influences.
