I'm a 2. What do I win?

I'm also a 2 and proud of it but I do wonder about my fellow Baby Boomers skewing towards Millennial lack of personal interactions.

I got 86. And I was born after 1981, so I guess that makes sense.

Interesting.

No texting...

No piercings...

No tatoos...

Married parents...

I get a 5...

Is there really a correlation?

I scored a 51.

I am almost 65 years old.

I would have scored higher except for:

No tatoos
No piercings
No texting (I refuse to pay extra for it)

My father and mother were married until he died (just before I was 17) so I counted it as married.

I'm a perfect (for me) 10.
I think the tat pushed me away from a 2.

I scored 83 and was born in the 60's. But some problems with the questions in terms of implications:

Re: TV, I have business news on most of the trading day, plus I watched some Olympic coverage. They should have asked about reality tv shows or Youtube videos.

Re: newspapers. The local rag is the LA Times so a waste of time. But I love reading the paper when I travel.

Re: text messages. I hardly ever send or receive personal text messages, but I do get notifications from my financial accounts, and I get Google calendar notifications for appointments. They should have asked how you most commonly contact friends - in person, phone, email, or text.

Re: a profile on a social networking site. Younger colleagues kept pestering me to create one so I did. Plus I'm self employed, so it's somewhat helpful in networking.

No tattoo, no piercings, parents married, conservative, and a couple other factors that must be more common among millenials than people would think. I ran through trying to score lower, and it seems some questions are scored jointly rather than having absolute scores independently. So perhaps conservative, low importance on religion, tattoed is characteristic of one generation.

Born in the 70s, scored 28.

48, born is 1964, so I am technically a Boomer. Apparently being conservative and thinking religion is important dropped my score dramatically.

Had a hard time answering that last one....conservative, moderate, liberal...

oh; 76, and I was born in 78.

21. About where I'd expect to be, with a foot in the boomer camp (where I nominally am) and a foot in the Gex-X camp (which I self-identify with -- though born in 1959, I was a "bleeding edge Gen-Xer", and, at 16, was always on the "conservative-libertarian" side of social discussions, generally surrounded by liberal twits.

I'm a 57. Having been born in 1984, I apparently don't identify with my peers very much.

For newspapers, I usually do read at least one of the four major dailies around here, but yesterday as chance had it, I read the two local weekly papers. My true score is probably even lower than 57.

I notice their graph doesn't include Gen-Yers. (I'm trying very hard to not ask "Y?".)
