I scored a 39. I saw it coming. I grew up in NW DC (although, back in the 80s, DC was hardly what it is now), have never watched a full episode of Oprah, Dr. Phil, or Judge Judy, and don’t have the attention span to be a big movie buff. But I do own a Jimmie Johnson shirt (it was more of a drunken purchase at NASCAR than an ironic one, too).

What’s your score?

I got a 56. I grew up super rural, blur collar breadwinner, the whole nine yards. Some of these questions are pretty hilarious. I wonder if a milking parlor counts as a “factory floor”?

I got a 38. Guess DC has yuppified the shit out of me.

35…some of these are unfair though…I live in a bubble for choosing not to hang out with smokers? I’ll take my clean lungs and not worry about your judgment, sir!

64. Have no idea what that means, but this is kinda fascinating. 

16

69. Not sure if that’s my middle class, very rural upbringing or my deep dedication to market research.  

47…I think those Vater factory summers kind of skewed this. still, interesting.
