From the demise of fabric softener to the craze for charcoal, millennials have been making headlines for a while as their desires and habits shape the new world we live in. The entire generation has been massively affected by the economic recession, causing their spending habits to shut down unnecessary industries and create new and useful products. 

While most well-known for their love of avocados, millennials are the hardest working generation. They are great at planning for financial stability, putting off marriage and children until much later than previous generations. Despite the headlines about their new and crazy trends, there are many positive things about the millennial generation that are not getting much media attention.

While millennials are defined as the generation born from 1982 to 2004, there are a lot of reasons you would identify with this hardworking generation. From their unique sense of style to their love of a good bargain, millennials have had a huge impact on culture and society. With their influence on technology and modern design, you probably enjoy at least a few of the byproducts of this generational phenomenon. 

Whether you buy charcoal soft serve or refuse to read books online, this quiz will show you how millennial you really are!
