I socred 11 - I have both a cell and landline, have a tatoo, didn't text within the last 24 hours, did watch TV, did read a paper (online), don't play video games......do have a Facebook page - to me that's quite a mix and yet the score is low - I'm 46 on the edge of Babyboomer......I think some of the answers are much more weighted than the others. All in all - not a very good survey - pop psychology. Who pays Pew for this?

With my score of 3 or 4, I guess having no cell phone or Facebook outweighs my being an atheist who supports same-sex marriage. Go figure.

LOL--I got a 74, identifying me as a Millenial. Except that I'm an Xer at 40. See how much cooler I am than you old fogies--and that was WITH the daily newspaper and no tattoos.
Boooyah!

Ha. Gotcha all beat - I scored a 2!

Oh. This isn't golf?

Must have been reading the newspaper, no text messages, and no Facebook account.

Congrats, Walt34. I did not think anyone would get a lower score than I had. I guess my not reading a newspaper clinched the low score for you!

I'm of late Boomer age and I scored 52, which means I'm a Millennial: Confident, Connected, and Open to Change. I am fulfilling my life plan of growing old but not growing up.
It helps to be a retired geek, meaning one who must dink with computers by nature.
I took up texting in order to communicate with my young relatives when I visit their town. I don't normally use a cell phone in my wonderful ERed life, but when I travel to a town with young relatives, I simply must.
So yes, kicking and screaming, I am being dragged into the 21st century.

I almost never post here, but read new posts almost every day. Apparently that's the Millennial thing to do, because I scored 94... I may need to get a piercing and tattoo just to clinch that perfect score. Born in '77, so technically a Gen X-er.

Based on the data so far, I would say that the survey has no face validity among Forum members.

No newspaper, no land line, no tattoos, no piercings

but yes to video games and Facebook

No to TV (but I have a few programs I do watch regularly on hulu or netflix but just haven't in the last 24 hours)
