Take this non-BuzzFeed quiz that skewers BuzzFeed quizzes
The best recent quiz to hit the Internet, mercifully, was not posted by BuzzFeed. Called “Which Absurd Consumer Psychographic Are You?” the quiz is brought to you by Twixt, a media-planning tool that’s part of AppNexus, and it skewers the ever-popular BuzzFeed-style interactive with questions like “What’s your perfect Saturday night?” or “Which Beyonce are you?”
So do as the site instructs: “Scroll and take the quiz, ya millennial,” and let us know if you are the “The millennial’s millennial,” “The cupcake baker,” “The woman who does yoga” or some other parodic consumer psychographic group. On second thought, please don’t let us know.
