69 for me, not really surprising. "Millenial" is the most misused, broad term for a huge group of people though...

42 for me.

I'm quite surprised by that result. I was expecting to match JP on this.

90 here, at the ripe old age of 53.

Me thinks this tool speaks more to values than to chronological age

I don't know if values play into it as much as what you enjoy or don't enjoy. The only "moral" questions were the ones about religion and politics; both of my answers were somewhat in the middle of the road.

I've had a tough time figuring out the metrics.

I'll have to go play around with some answers later to see how it affects the outcome.

Less than ideal choice of words. I was thinking along the lines of "I value my mobile phone more than broadcast television."

21. I'm just not very hip. I have to keep my landline for my older family members who know nothing else. Cannot change the fact that my parents were married. No pierciings or tattoos. I don't play video games but I autocross.

You're pretty hip! (At least according to my book!)

I got a 28, and I'm 35. No video games, no tats, no piercings, no Facebook. Good thing I only have a cell phone, or I'd be scoring in my dad's range.

I'm 26 and got a score of 57. I'm in between a Gen Xer (33) and a Millenial (73) with a slight bend toward the Millenial end of the spectrum.
