I got hippie. Kinda of true at the time. Still, like the Crosby, Still, & Nash, Joni Mitchell vibe.

Rat Pack.

Considering the fact I have a poster of Frank and the boys at the Sands in my office, I can dig it. The best is yet to come....

I got to stay up past midnight on Dec 31, 1969 / Jan 1, 1970, for the first time in my life. I had just started elementary school a few months prior. So, yeah, I was certainly there during part of the 60s.

In any case: The quiz gave me an interesting result (one most Xers would probably get) - Revolutionary.

The way the questions are set up, that is the most likely result for someone in my cohort.

You are a

Hippie

Life is about peace, love and happiness. You’d be at home at Woodstock or Haight-Ashbury, and it’s a good bet you’ve worn flowers in your hair

Stupid waste of time... very random references from the 80s to now are supposed to 60's culture-define us? I guess this is for younger people who get the references & not for people in their 60s who have already gone to "Poetry readings in a coffeehouse" on Fridays 40 years ago & couldn't be arsed now to go & listen to some undergrad whining into a microphone in the few years we have left.

Or maybe I'm just pissed because this Viet protesting, long-haired, pot-smoking, music-playing, Woodstock-attending acidhead was determined to be "a square"?

Oh, the ravages of time.....

Ha I came in as a revolutionary. Hmmmm certainly not a war protester. It could be right since I voted for Mickey Mouse over Jimmy Carter over Gerald Ford. It is a bit odd that as someone mentioned Paul was the only one from the 60s though Bruce wasnt not too far off.

CNN is starting a 10-part series tonight (May 29) on the Sixties. They'll probably romanticize it, but it should bring back memories.

Same here, so did not finish the quiz; appears to have been created by someone 'not' from the 60s.
