It's my guess that the writer is 30 or younger and has no comprehension of the 60's.
Yup!

Well, that was weird. I got "Revolutionary". Ain't nothing 'bout me that is revolutionary, unless maybe they were meaning the Reagan Revolution.

Revolutionary would mean you were like say Jane Fonda who openly supported the north Vietnamese. Most I know who protested against the war were just against being in that war; not calling for anything else. There were of course those that burnt flags and took over building but that was most just a relative few. Actually it was what convinced me I didn't want part of the protest; just wasn't for being in Vietnam. That is why I think perhaps the author of the test had a movie version of reality.

Square, but I couldn't answer half the questions. Have no idea who most of those people are. I don't watch commercial television and haven't for several decades.

Well, I came up Square. That's funny, because I was a solid 'hippy' in the 60s.

Of course, most of the choices were unanswerable. I never saw 'The Breakfast Club', don't listen to modern music, don't go anywhere on a Friday night, etc.

Maybe the quiz was meant to be answered IF it was still the 60s? Was Beyoncé even born yet? LOL

OK, I re-took the quiz and came out 'Hippie'.

I answered (the ones I could, anyway) as if I were still young!

It's funny because, I was familiar with all the people movies, music, stars reference and picked more of the modern choices, I even chose to go out on a weekend to a charity event what more did I need to do to break out of the box. LOL I like music of today, the 60's music isn't my choice to listen to by a long shot, though some of it I remember from childhood rather fondly.
