You Act How Old? What's Your Mental Age?


Were you born in the wrong generation? Do you have the mind of a zoomer in the body of a senior citizen? Are you truly wise beyond your years? This quiz aims to guess what generation you embody best by asking a series of questions. Maybe you’ll find that you think or act like someone from a totally different era. Alternatively, you might discover that you are a living stereotype of your age group. You could even be an uncategorizable wonder. Let go, approach this quiz with a sense of humor, and have fun with it!


Quiz WriterJoselyn

Joselyn wasn’t too keen on multiple choice in high school. She vividly remembers the first biology exam she passed by only the skin of her teeth, which dragged her overall average down into the embarrassingly low 90s (she doesn’t want to talk about it). After swearing off any high school or university courses that required multiple choice tests, Joselyn managed to get an English degree by sweet-talking her professors into offering only essay-style exams. Needless to say, this did not exactly endear her to her peers. This rocky start smoothed out in time, though, and after tumbling down a black quiz hole one day while putting off job hunting, Joselyn realized her hatred of all things a-b-or-c had faded and she actually enjoyed dreaming up new ideas for questions and dangerously correct-sounding answers. You won’t find her quizzes an easy ride, but Joselyn just wants to make sure you’re really testing your knowledge.

Did you know?

There are more generations than most people realize

A lot of people think of generations as rigid groups with definite start and end dates. This is somewhat true, but those boundaries can vary quite a bit. Culture can change so significantly in 20 years that many of the younger members of a generation may feel like they have nothing in common with the oldest members. This has driven many people who feel “in-between” generations to adopt new labels. For example, some of the later baby boomers are known as Generation Jones. Younger Gen X-ers and older millennials are often known as Xennials. Those between millennials and zoomers are sometimes called Zennials or Zilennials.

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
