If you scroll through Google for a while, you'll probably find about a thousand and one articles that explain how Millennials all love avocado toast and Gen Xers are "Breakfast Club" throwbacks who're just realizing they're adults. Of course, the world is a lot more complex than blogs make it seem sometimes, and no one is fully defined by their generation. Instead, we tend to be influenced by them and the culture they produce. Each generation is born into a time of specific technologies and politics. Certain tastes and ideals. Awesome snacks and cool music that, by the time the next generation rolls around, are all terrible. And many people will fall in step really easily with that time and place, while others among us tend to march to the beat of a different drum.
If you've ever felt like you just didn't get your own generation, maybe there's a reason for that. Maybe you don't belong in this time at all. It happens! Some of us are just more in step with a different time and a different way of looking at the world. If you want to know what generation you actually belong in, why not take the quiz and find out?
