About This Quiz

Have you ever had the experience of watching a film that was set in another time, and you felt certain that you would fit in and be so much happier in that period? Maybe you've read a novel from the past, and the author's descriptions left you yearning to actually be transported to that place and time. 

While we encourage you to make the very best of your actual life in the here and now, let's enjoy some escapism for a while and imagine that we could insert you into any decade that you desired. Would you know which one was the perfect fit for you?

If you just want to have fun and do a bit of rebelling, the '80s might be a good fit for you. Maybe you have a bunch of neon clothes in your wardrobe, and you think that big hair look would be amazing on you. Perhaps the thought of being there at the start of video game culture gets you pretty fired up to play some "Super Mario Bros." If all of these are true, then it seems even more likely that this is the decade where we should take you.

The options are endless, but continuing on that '80s theme, Dr. Emmett Brown from "Back to the Future" is waiting for you out in the DeLorean. Let's find out what date we should punch into the computer for you.
