How Millennial Are You?

You can quickly take the 14 question Pew Research Center quiz here to find out. The typical Millennial who takes the quiz scores a 73 out of 100 while a typical Gen-Xer (my own cohort group) only scores a 33; typical Boomers and their parents barely register with 11 and 4, respectively. I surprisingly scored an 86. I'm not exactly sure how to interpret these results other than to posit that my enthusiasm for politics and new technology are most likely major factors. How Millennial are you?

I got a 70. How are you more millennial than I am??

Oso said...

I got a 60-so Shannon beat me by 10 points. Is there a consolation prize?

I got a 34. With the limited question set, I am not terribly surprised.

one L said...

...it kind of stinks that my parents getting divorced the year after I left for college is held against my millennialism.

Nicole said...

I got a 76. Quite respectable for being 38. Yay!

I got a 72 and I'm old.

I'm not trying to out-Millennial anybody but I totally out-Millennialed you guys! Lose your land line, send more texts and email your congressman; that's how I roll.

55...and I was born in 1940. The questions seemed to be limiting.

Can someone please explain this voicemail thing to me? Every time I try to send a cassette tape in an envelope the Post Office tells me to knock it off cuz it keeps jammin up their sorting machines.

Interestingly, I scored a 96. I do NOT watch any TV (except the news & 24), play video games, or have Facebook (just Twitter & Linked In). I do have my Congress reps numbers in my cell (which is my only phone. . . For me, it's the year I turn the big 3-0 (sigh).

JBW said...

I assumed that my lack of any tattooing and the fact that I hadn't turned my TV on in the last 24 hurt me as well, kelly.

Since you beat me though, I'll simply dismiss any significance this test proves as I simultaneously dismiss anything else you say by denigrating your lesser age and lack of wisdom. Snap, young one.

You know, I am a little bit surprised that I have the lowest score here. I have a really hard time believing that in "real" life (outside of limited surveys) that I am the least millenial person here... and especially that I relate to Gen-X more closely.

I think Gen-X sucks! Generally speaking, of course.

JBW said...

As has been noted already one L, this survey is fairly limited and most likely doesn't dissect people very thoroughly. That said, and speaking as the resident Gen-Xer here: Gen-X rules, yo! And I still totally out-Millennialed your white ass, kid.

Now why don't you go watch some A-Team reruns or something...
