3 Cultural Divides Between ’80s and ’90s Millennials
We're just as annoyed by these illiterate, tech-obsessed narcissists as Boomers and Gen-Xers are...

Are you “typical” for your generation or are you a “freak?” Well, now you can find out.
The Pew Research Center has a quiz, “How Millennial are you?” It surveys your beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors and compares them to other Americans who have taken a national survey. Intriguing.
I took this quiz. Although I was born in the late 1980s, I wasn’t very “Millennial.” The Millennial point spread is from 73-100, with 100 being the “most Millennial” you can be. Below 72 points, you leave the Millennial spread and enter into Gen Xer range.
I received 80 points on my test, putting me on the low end of the Millennial attitude/behavior range. A good friend from college also took this quiz. She received 40 points; putting her in the Gen Xer range (the Gen Xer range is 33-72 points). I know many of my other friends would either be on the low-end of the Millennial scale or a Gen Xer.
Honestly, I’m not surprised. I’ve noticed that there isn’t just a difference between generations, but also within them. Sometimes, I look around at my generational peers and think “who are these people?”
