Add up your score! Let’s see what you’ve got!

400-600+: You are either Amish, or so ridiculously old-fashioned, even I can’t beat you. You are my idol.

200-400: Not bad. Old ladies love you, and you them, because you have so much in common. Younger people are apt to think you slightly eccentric.

50-200: Old-fashioned stuff is interesting, but it’s not your main focus.

0-50: I’m sorry. You just aren’t an old-fashioned girl. Just give us lots of praise for our phenomenal cooking/sewing/knitting/tatting skills, and we’ll love you anyways.
