How much flower power do you really have? Take this quick quiz and find out! Mark one point for each item you relate to, then tally your score and see how big of a hippie you really are!
You know you are a hippie when…
- You belong among the wildflowers (RIP Tom Petty).
- You have more than one “Dead Head” in the family.
- Thanksgiving dinners consist of huge Cheech-and-Chong-style joints being passed around the table.
- You can’t seem to have enough yogurt and granola in the house.
- Your siblings have far-out names like Starr, Feather, Robin or Ezekial.
- Friends you grew up with are more like a gypsy tribe of “cousins.”
- Love is all you need.
- Rose water spray, coconut oil and aluminum-free deodorant can be found in your bathroom cabinet.
- Your fair-trade, hand-woven basket comes loaded with tinctures, vegetarian snacks, B-12 pills, and accompanies you everywhere you go.
- Dried sage, cedar or mugwort is readily available for your home purification needs.
- The smell of body odor comforts you.
- Running out of nutritional yeast is a travesty.
In love with Mary Jane
- You sing to your plants.
- You use cannabis oil lubrication for a special romp in the sheets.
- The powers of CBD continue to astound you every day.
- Herbs are the healing of the nation.
Mover and shaker
- Your crystal and artifact collections are your most valued possessions.
- You know all the words to at least 10 Bob Marley songs.
- Being barefoot is your go-to.
- Your boss tells you that you are a hippie.
Knowledge is power
- You release spiders outside instead of squish them.
- “The Man” can’t hold you down.
- You have gone dumpster-diving.
- You are pro-feminism and make moves to smash the patriarchy.
- Pure water is more precious than gold.
- You believe in conspiracy theories.
Now tally up! Take away one point if you are a white person with dreadlocks. Sorry, that does not add to your hippie credibility. Subtract another point if you own a pair of Chacos or Tevas. They may be practical, but I know you can do better.
- 0-10 points: Yippee. Give yourself a pat on the back, you are making a difference in the world! You make good choices for the environment and pass along knowledge to those around you. Keep up the good work!
- 11-20 points: Are you trying too hard, or not hard enough?
- 21-27 points: A Royal Radical. You can be found weird-ing out at music festivals or at home meditating to spiritual teachings. You surround yourself with positivity and languish in the natural environment. The world needs more people like you!
- 28 points: Highest of Hippies. You are soaring above the rest in an eco-friendly cloud of cannabis smoke. You probably have reusable glass straws, zero plastic use in your house, and practice yoga daily. Well done, your highness!
