About This Quiz

Each major period in history has featured its own unique qualities and has emphasized different priorities in life. While one period may have required much harder physical labor, those times also tended to offer a much more simple and basic lifestyle, free from many of the complications of modern life. If you yearn for a time when there wasn't so much information inundating you on a daily basis, we might have a better alternative for you.

Maybe you're a highly spiritual person who finds that the modern age is filled with evil and debauchery. If you're someone who would give away all the modern conveniences to return to a period where the church led the way, the Middle Ages could be just right for you. Should you mention that you feel drawn to living in a monastery, we'll be even more confident in our choice.

On the other hand, maybe you feel right at home with computers and modern technology. If you always seem to have the latest and greatest smartphone, and you are drawn to the electric car and other cutting-edge innovations in green technology, it seems clear that you'd only truly be happy in the modern age.

We're firing up the time machine. Hop in; we're about to take you to the time where you'll be at your best.
