Generations X, Y, and Z: Which One Are You?

Generations X, Y, and Z: Which One Are You?

Since you’re on the Internet right now you’ve probably already noticed that this space is pretty much dominated by a younger crowd. You’ve likely heard them referred to as “Millennials”. Or is it Gen Z? And how are they different from Generations X and Y? And how can you make heads or tails of which one you belong to, and what defines your generation?
According sociologist Karl Mannheim, it all comes down to “generational location,” meaning that all members of a generation share a similar collective experience.

SUMMARY
-As of now, there are five living generations in the US: the Traditionalists, who were born before 1945. Then there’s the Baby Boomers, born between 1946 and 1964. Anyone born between 1965 and 1979 are considered Generation X, while Millennials, or Gen Y, were born between 1980 and 1995. Finally, there’s Gen Z, or Centennials, who were born from 1996 to the present.
-Most Traditionalists value hard work, commitment, and practicality, and they don’t like to be wasteful.
-Boomers started out liberal, when they were involved in all the political and social movements, but then grew more conservative as they aged.
-Gen X got to experience the aftermath of all the changes the Boomers made. The use of computers also took off during these years, making Gen X more entrepreneurial than their parents and grandparents.
-Other generations complain that Millennials are selfish, entitled, narcissistic, addicted to their phones, lazy, impatient, impulsive, overly sensitive, weak-willed, and the name-calling goes on and on.
-Gen Z also tends to value collaboration more, in both school and work. They have a very different relationship with digital devices than previous generations.
-Millennials and Centennials share the most similarities and collective experiences out of all the living generations, so there’s a lot of debate about the exact range for each of them.

    No, Gen X is from 1964 to 1982 (an argument could be made even 1984)… Look, if you were 13 or older before the internet was "standard" (1995) then you’re Gen X, your childhood was way more similar to someone born in 1975 than someone born in 1985 . I was born in 1980 and I have little in common with Millennial’s, at least with childhood experiences. Millennial’s grew up with the internet, cell phones and other tech, but if you were born before 1982 you didn’t experience the technology boom until you were a teenager if not a young adult, I mean technology wasn’t part of your childhood beyond Nintendo, arcade games at the local bowling ally or if you had a computer it was MS DOS hence essentially a word processor…

    So yea, I mean the internet changed everything so I think there needs to be a distinction made for pre and post internet, so if you were 13 or older before the internet was a "thing" then you’re Gen X or a Boomer because you have memories from a "long gone era", lol – an era when kids would be outside all day and the only rule was you had to be home before dark, when kids would explore and wonder, where they would find things to entertain them that had nothing to do with "advanced" technology..

    So yea, I’m not a Millennial, lol…

    All of us born in 80’s let’s be rebellion now , let’s start living for us only , no more comparmise , no more killing of our personal desires ,
    Move forward spend majority of our money on us , car we like , whiskey we want to drink , no more listening to wife and kids , they should be treated totally secondary in life .
    Self enjoyment should be primary air of life to us , no more compromising in life 👍👍👍

    How about different countries/geographical clusters have different types of generations or the timeline of the named generations above is different regarding the country?

  28. Dante Toshiro64 on January 6, 2022 at 4:44 pm

    Just want to know exactly what year does 1999 define or would be set in for such a generation???

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

  29. carwashfreak97 on January 6, 2022 at 4:44 pm

    Gen 97

  30. Star_Amathyct_Fren~~ on January 6, 2022 at 4:45 pm

    Gen Z 2011 why we so depressed?!?

  31. Fernando † on January 6, 2022 at 4:48 pm

    Gen z had the easiest from all generations

  32. J F on January 6, 2022 at 4:49 pm

    Millennials remember the internet in its infancy which is on thing that sets us apart from gen z. I find that each new generation seems to be getting more book smart, but lose common sense.

  33. Kc Mullins on January 6, 2022 at 4:52 pm

    1987 here 😉 gen Y aka millennial

  40. Drippõ on January 6, 2022 at 5:01 pm

    What about generation alpha?

  41. lucid_delirium on January 6, 2022 at 5:05 pm

    If people today are identifying with opposite sexes, I think it’s fair for me to identify with gen x even though I’m born in 1981. I ain’t no millennial..

  42. Laila's fun Time on January 6, 2022 at 5:09 pm

    I’m a gen alpha

  47. Connor Kingston on January 6, 2022 at 5:10 pm

    We also never had technology growing up till the end of high school when we were leaving for high school. So I don’t know why you think we are more lenient with technology fed up with it.

  48. Troy Hayder on January 6, 2022 at 5:10 pm

    GenXoYZity…

  49. Rocco Colella on January 6, 2022 at 5:11 pm

    I’ll say between 1980 to 1990 acts more like a bridge. I was born in 81 and I can relate to both. My sisters are 10-12 years older than me and their upbringing was way different than mine. And my nephew is 10 years younger than me and his upbringing was way different than mine. I was just a child throughout the 80s so I don’t remember much and throughout the 90s my teens and high school. So I knew what it was like without much technology. We didn’t have computers in school until I was in the 10th or so. I remember when the school used to have to drag a big box TV into the classroom. Also rap wasn’t really popular in the subs until I got into 9th grade or so.

  50. Diamond Dia on January 6, 2022 at 5:11 pm

    Im a ? generation = human … period lol
