BUBBLING UP:


Do You Live in a Bubble? A Quiz (PAUL SOLMAN AND ELIZABETH SHELL   March 14, 2012, PBS Newshour)


Scoring

You got 63 points.

See below for scores Charles Murray would expect you to get based on the following descriptions. Note that there are ranges of possible scores for categories and some overlap. In the graphic, your score is denoted by the horizontal black line, and typical scores for each range are marked with gray lines. The possible overlap is represented by the blue bars.

The higher your score, the thinner your bubble. The lower, the more insulated you might be from mainstream American culture.
