About This Quiz

Were you talking "coupon" or "diversity" lingo out the womb? Immerse your thoughts in this generational challenge to see what these keywords mean. And if you're not feeling the keywords thing, you're probably from generations that experienced simpler, non-tech times. All generations have made significant accomplishments in this complex life. Let's sort out who did what, shall we?

You're a Millennial or have Millennial tendencies if you could text before you could write. You're Generation Z, or Gen Z, if you texted before you could talk. Gen Zs are usually the offspring of Millennials, so since birth, they have learned their futuristic culture know-how from the techie source. If you haven't noticed as yet, technology is what defines these two generations best, just like major international conflicts amidst times of increased plenty defines the Baby Boomer generation. 

A baby boomer may not know much about tagging and sharing on social media, but pull up a chair and lend your ear whenever you younger generations out there are awarded the occasion to speak with baby boomers about practical finance or proper ways to balance work with interpersonal relationships. And speaking of leisure, no generational analysis challenge would be complete without including Generation X, those who seem to be caught in a pleasant purgatory between their awesome boomer parents and equally awesome Millennials.

Peep how the Gen Xers deal with their mid-generational status. Find out where and how your own era tendencies linger!
