About This Quiz

What defines a millennial? A birth year between (approximately) 1980 and 2000? A confident, assertive, and possibly entitled (sorry!)  attitude toward life? Or is it just having grown up watching "Lizzie McGuire" and waiting all year for the "McRib" to come back to McDonald's?

There are reams of research on what the Millennial generation is all about -- their politics, their attitudes toward relationships and marriage, their approach to saving, spending and home ownership. Whole books have been written about them. To which we say: How exhausting! Can't we just talk about the TV, the movies and the tech?

The answer to that is yes. Yes, we can. We've created a quiz on '90s and 2000s culture that only Millennials will pass with flying colors. Some of our questions are nostalgic, about the early technology and games that '90s and 2000s kids owned. Others are about about Millennials today, especially the language they use to differentiate themselves from Generation X and Boomers. 

Whether you're a true Millennial, an "Xennial" (an older millennial with a lot in common with Generation X), or a Boomer or Gen-Xer trying to remain young and hip, we've got a quiz for you! Grab some shade-grown coffee and a cronut, settle in, and test your cultural savvy now!
