Do you think that you’re a pretty up to date person? I would like to consider myself to be caught up with the times, but the future is always coming quickly. It’s amazing how fast one can become outdated without even knowing it. Sometimes I watch TV shows from a few years ago and think the clothes look modern… and I realize that I’m the one who isn’t being modern. Scary!
Is it a bad thing to be outdated? I’m not sure. I think it’s important to think carefully about any trends we adopt, and there’s a lot to be said for sticking with what’s tried and true. There’s also something to said about not being stuck in a rut and suffering from future shock. Hmmm… I suppose that I’m saying that it’s good to be open to all influences: past, present, and future. Whatever your best mix is depends on you personally 🙂
Of course, no one is ever going to be completely outdated or up to date. I have some friends who are very up on the latest fashions and technologies, yet they still only listen to 70s and 80s music. And then I have friends who are up on the latest music, but I’m not sure that they’ve really figured out how to use Facebook yet. I’d say I tend to be rather up to date with technology, books, and TV … but my taste in music and clothes is more, well, classic.
I decided to write this latest quiz (which I believe was suggested by one of my lovely quiz takers a while ago) to test myself every so often: How Outdated Are You? I feel that it’s important to clarify that there aren’t any right or wrong answers to this quiz. It’s not necessarily bad to be outdated, and it’s not necessarily good to be up to date 🙂
Go ahead and take How Outdated Are You? and let me know what you get. What do you think of this one? Was it right or wrong about how outdated you are?
