About This Quiz
You hear people say all the time that they're an old soul. But you also hear people say that they're ahead of their time. Not the same person, of course. That would be confusing. But what do they mean by that? Someone who feels like they can't keep up with all of the new technology, slang or food trends would probably love a simpler life of another time. Or maybe they're the ones creating all these new advances in computers and medicine, but the technology to actually accomplish change hasn't been invented yet. They would fare better in a decade ahead of where they're at.
How do you feel? Great about the world you live in and like you can't imagine life any other way? Cool! There's nothing wrong with being perfectly satisfied with all the emojis you use, abbreviated words that other generations can't even begin to translate and taking photos of all of your food before you eat it. It's the world you were born into and you've adapted to it quite well. That's all anyone can really hope for.
If you're one of the many people who feel like they were born in the wrong time, or even if you feel like you're exactly where you need to be, take this quiz to find out the right decade for you!
