About This Quiz
Have you ever forged iron? How about made your own clothes from the skin of a deer/moose/elk? Probably not, right? Yet, those ancient life skills were the very foundation of a society long since past. Today, we're more well-versed in how to troubleshoot a computer, find the best seats at a concert or sporting event, or make our own cold brew at home. Not all that long ago even, maybe our parents' and grandparents' generation, people could do things that have almost become a lost art these days: driving a stick shift, balancing a checkbook, finding a date without the help of a smartphone app. Some people – maybe you! – possess a variety of skills that cross what we might consider generational boundaries. Maybe you're really adept at sewing, but you can also craft a mean tweet! That makes you pretty well-rounded, doesn't it?
Ever considered how what you excel at might give away your age (or your age at heart)? Choose the best answers in the quiz that follows, and sit back and watch as we narrow down your age based on your answers. It might surprise you ... or you might surprise us with your gnarly know-how of how a card catalog works. Choose the answer that best represents your skill level and find out if you're aging gracefully or young at heart.
