How millennial are you? Take Pew Research’s quiz

Just how millennial are you?

The Pew Research Center has a quick quiz so you can find out. Most of the 14 questions focus on technology and your priorities in life, except for one that comes out of left field that basically asks whether you are racist or not.

If you are a Gen Xer, you are likely to score around 33, and 11 if you are a Baby Boomer, according to the quiz results. This reporter scored an 80, for what it’s worth. And no, I’m not racist.

But I am religious and moderate in my politics, which skews somewhat against the norm for Millennials, according to center’s findings. Millennials are more ethnically and racially diverse, less religious, less likely to have served in the military and are "on track to become the most educated generation in American history."

"The American teens and twenty-somethings who are making the passage into adulthood at the start of a new millennium — have begun to forge [their personalities]: confident, self-expressive, liberal, upbeat and open to change," the center reports.
