About This Quiz

Regardless of your actual age, perhaps you'll feel most at home with a completely different batch of people. This might especially be true if you don't quite fit in with your peers and you're drawn to hanging out with those from another generation.

If you're someone who prefers to shop in the big box stores in your town and you have a phone that would be best described as "retro," then you might just fit in as a member of the Baby Boomer generation. When you tell us that you're also a big fan of game shows and you yearn for the days when life was a lot simpler, and the world was a safer place, we'll feel even more comfortable assigning you to the post-war boom.

If you're pretty frugal with your spending and you rely more on word of mouth from friends than anything some overpaid celebrity says on a commercial, you could be a perfect fit for Generation Z. Should you mention that you spend most of your time on Snapchat, and you laugh when anyone mentions their Facebook account, then this connection continues to grow in strength.

Let's get this quiz started. If you're truly a Baby Boomer, you may need to call a younger person into the room to help.
