About This Quiz

Generation X, much like the previous Baby Boomers, and succeeded by Millennials, is a demographic born between the mid-1960s to the early 1980s. Also referred to a "latchkey kids," people who grew up during that time were known for growing up with little parental supervision, often returning home from school to an empty home. 

They were also known for being independent, artistic, and family-oriented. On the negative side, they have been called slackers and are also blamed for the current state of affairs in the western hemisphere. 

Like all generations, Generation X had its fads and trends; from Farrah Fawcett's hair and bikini to mood rings. From and tie-dye to VHS tapes, MTV, pagers, and shows like "The Dukes of Hazard" and "The Brady Bunch." There were many things that made this generation one of the most fun.
