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.
The five generations 0:57
The Traditionalist generation 1:49
The Baby Boomers 2:30
The Gen Y 3:24
The Millenials 4:30
The Gen Z 5:31
What Millennials and Centennials have in common 6:35
-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.
