What generation are you...really?

According to Penelope Trunk, if you want to know how old you really are, look at the media you use rather than the generation you were born into.
I have been feeling very young but Gen Y?  I like this test...now your turn!
Add up your points to figure out what generation you're really a part of:
Do you have your own web page? (1 point)
Have you made a web page for someone else? (2 points)
Do you IM your friends? (1 point)
Do you text your friends? (2 points)
Do you watch videos on YouTube? (1 point)
Do you remix video files from the Internet? (2 points)
Have you paid for and downloaded music from the Internet? (1 point)
Do you know where to download free (illegal) music from the Internet? (2 points)
Do you blog for professional reasons? (1 point)
Do you blog as a way to keep an online diary? (2 points)
Have you visited MySpace at least five times? (1 point)
Do you communicate with friends on Facebook? (2 points)
Do you use email to communicate with your parents? (1 point)
Did you text to communicate with your parents? (2 points)
Do you take photos with your phone? (1 point)
Do you share your photos from your phone with your friends? (2 points)

0-1 point – Baby Boomer
2-6 points – Generation Jones
6- 12 points – Generation X
12 or over – Generation Y

  1. I scored a 13 (Gen Y), but I KNOW I'M NOT that young! LOL! It does make me feel good, that's for sure! ;-)

  2. You are definitely an early adopter John, just the fact that you follow and comment on blogs is huge!


Would love to hear from you!
