Are you a yuppie, or just a person who happened to stumble on some money?

Take this quiz and find out!

1. If you found all these CDs in the used bin, but you could only buy one, which would it be?

a. Radiohead's "The Bends"
b. Barry White's Greatest Hits
c. The Big Chill Soundtrack
d. I don't have time to check out the used bin. They're not even in alphabetical order! I don't get why they don't just hire someone to organize them.
e. Only buy one? Why? What do you mean? I don't get it. You're confusing me!

2. When you go out to dinner with your friends, what happens when the bill comes?

a. We split it evenly.
b. I pay, because all my friends are broke.
c. Everyone pulls out their wallets and offers to pay at once, and then the guy who we all know makes the most money puts the whole thing on his corporate card.
d. Oh, god, it's so tacky to discuss that kind of thing. It's not like I even think about that stuff.
e. My assistant handles all my financial matters for me — I'll patch you through to her...

3. Which of the following sounds like something you'd put on your wall?

a. A drawing by my five-year-old nephew.
b. One of those 3-D pictures of Jesus a friend of mine found at the flea market in Pasadena.
c. This Van Gogh I really like — Starry, Starry Night? — with the words "National Gallery of Art" under it to remind me of my trip there.
d. An artsy thing of Miles Davis playing a trumpet, to show that I like jazz and black people are a-ok with me, too!
e. That's really a decision for my interior decorator — I don't pretend to know anything about design. She's the best, though — do you want her card?

Answer Key:

If you ever answered c, d, or e, you're a yuppie. But we won't hold it against you... if you pay for dinner.
