You need a small Gen Y at the early 80s.

    1776 to 1861 (100 years pretty much one peer group)
    1861 to 1917 (65 years pretty much one peer group)
    1917 to 1946 - 30 years
    1946 to 1964ish - 20ish years
    1964ish to 1980ish - 15ish years
    1980ish to 2000ish (some went to the mall to shop with paper money, watched 4 OTA tv channels growing up, had to plan ahead of time and used paper maps, others will rarely use paper anything, will never know what it is like to be lost, and can communicate with almost anyone on the planet instantly at any time, last few years will probably have self driving electric cars on the road when they turn 16.)

    Seriously, I recommend the book 'Generations' by Strauss and Howe, because there's a whole 'nuther layer of generational dynamics and analysis, which is where the real meat is.

    i think the delineating events between gen y and millenials are...

    1.) columbine - if you can remember columbine affecting rules at your school (post columbine everyone had to wear student IDs at all times, have clear backpacks, no long coats, etc)
    2.) iraq 1 - if you can remember watching live coverage of desert storm or the actual push into iraq
    3.) 9-11 - if you can remember travelling without post 9-11 rules

    if you can remember all of those, you're Gen Y.

    I was at a party talking to the 24 year old daughter of another person at the party. She got a degree in RTF in May and lives in Austin. I said, "so how is the job search coming?" She told me that she couldn't get one. Realizing that a) the unemployment rate in Austin is about 3% b) she's reasonably intelligent and c) she's quite pretty, I asked if she'd had any offers. She said that she'd had working for a film "production house" one but it only paid 15 dollars per hour and that they wanted her to work full-time and she wants to work 25-30 hours per week.

    So she's 24, has a degree in RTF, is unwilling to work for "only" 15 dollars per hour and unwilling to work full-time.

    She's going to be waylaid in the forehead by a 2 x 4 known as reality at some point but right now her parents are still subsidizing her.

    I don't give a $#@! if she's "smart".Being so $#@!ing hand-held and hovered over her whole life kills her value as an employee. She's 24.

    Definitely the best way to NOT make things better for the next bunch, which will have a nice little catch phrase to disparage the new generation. My dad always said that every generation thinks this $#@!...until they get old.

    I wonder how the generation of kids born 2010 and onward is going to be. The ones who learned how to navigate an iPad at 2 years old, who watch Minecraft youtube tutorials and then replicate what they've learned at 5, and rarely get to eat things like McDonalds or Hershey's or Fruit Loops or Capri Suns, but instead are growing up on Annie's, Honest Kids, Simply Balanced and 365.

    Will they be superheroes or will they be a generation of people who have amazing and talented people with drive intermixed with $#@!-ups and idiots and lazy people like every other generation that ever generationed?

    I really wonder about this. I interviewed a Millenial a few months ago and when I asked him where he thought he'd be in 5 years, he said "CEO of this company." I don't get it.

    I still say there is a huge difference between the kids that can remember a time before the internet versus those who can't. 1992-3 or so as a birth day.

    I would like to stress to everyone in the thread that not all younger people are like this and it's probably more irritating to have these people as your peers than watch them from a distance.

    No not all for sure, but definitely a larger number than pre interwebz/cell phone. I cannot even imagine hearing some one say they would turn down a full time job opportunity right out of college because they didn't want a full time job, even with $#@!ty pay. It was called paying your dues.

    I'm not sure some kids can even mouth those words today.

    Of course college didn't cost what it does today either.

    I agree with these criteria though as an aside, I was a junior in high school at the time and I don't recall a single rule change at school post-Columbine.

    I have one of those kids. I am insisting she limit tube time, read, draw with a pencil and crayons, memorize poetry. I intend for her to learn cursive and diagram sentences. I figure she'll get enough of the computer stuff on her own.

    I am a Millennial with several Gen Xers who work for me. I don't even know how to turn on a computer, I tried to figure it out one time and got dizzy and had to lie down.

    I pretty much just play Pokemon all day while Snapchatting my friends about Instagrams and make the old people do all the work.

    I make mine do all the trendy things for the bumper stickers so other parents know who they are dealing with when I pull up to the scene, like Art class at Oil & Cotton in Bishop Arts, Dallas children's theatre, a myriad of early childhood programs at Perot, Fantasia dance co., Dallas zoo Safari pre-k etc. Not including private school tuition (which isn't high for the location and grade), kids of millennial's are too expensive and I'm poor to begin with.

    btw this is how I see it (at least based on me, which is probably a bad representative)

    GenX - "Let's find a problem and fix it"

    GenY - "Find me a problem and I'll fix it"

    Millennials - "Find me a problem, and help me fix it"

    Which is the "me" generation? "These are the problems I've found, fix them for me (now)."

    I work in IT support. The 20-30 age group here is mind bottlingly stupid at all things. Not just technology. The most common ticket I get is for PC speaker issues. 99 times out of 100 the idiot doesn't have the volume turned up.

    So learning the fine points of triggering and micro-aggresion isn't the best education you can receive? Who woulda thunk it?

    3.) 9-11 - if you can remember travelling without post 9-11 rules

    if you can remember all of those, you're Gen Y.
    When I was in high school, clear backpacks were catching on -- not because disaffected suburban youth were shooting up schools, but rather the nation was caught up in the mid-90s drug gang hysteria.

    That may differentiate tail-end Gen X from Y/Millenials.

    P.S. When did Gen Y and the Millenials become two different things? I thought Millenials were Gen Y.

    you went to westlake right? you guys didn't have to wear IDs or have visitor restrictions etc? i was a jr at plano when columbine happened. my senior year we had to be wearing visible student IDs at all times, we couldn't have friends from other schools on campus, and we weren't allowed to wear hats or long coats on campus and in classrooms we weren't allowed to wear even normal waist-length jackets.

    i think that's what we're trying to differentiate. b/c there's a big difference between a someone born in the first few years of the 80s and someone born in the first few years of the 90s.

    A bunch of old people in the workplace suck too, for a lot of reasons, some stereotypical, some not. Every generation has something about them as a whole that sucks. I'm in the lost early 80's births. Not Gen-X, but not Millenial. I remember a time before the internet which is the dividing line, as discussed above. I have worked with good millenials and bad ones. I always laugh when people bitch about entire generations based on an experience with the stereotype. Especially when they ignore the weaknesses in their own generation. Don't hire $#@!ty employees, or fire them when they turn out to be $#@!ty. It's pretty simple and universal and spans employees of all generations.

    So true. The number of kids I take classes with that showed up to their internships for example, and $#@!ed around until people gave them things to do is just incredible. They couldn't understand why I was exhausted with a lot of work. I went looking you little $#@!s.

    Trick question. They all are.

    Boomers - "It is not my problem."

    GenX - "I found a problem and fixed it or gave it to person Y to fix"

    GenY - "Find me a problem and I'll fix it"

    Millennials - "Find me a problem, and help me fix it"

    There is a reason everyone loves the Mormons ... those kids are unicorns among the idiocracy of the millenials. That's because they actually have to work hard and give back. If I see a kid from BYU I'll hire sight unseen. They're respectful and responsible.

    We had rules against non-students coming on campus (at least without first checking in at the office) prior to Columbine, but no, we didn't have to wear IDs or have clear backpacks and I don't recall any changes to the dress code.

    Who picked the test takers for each age group and what assurances do I have that they are representative of each generation? I guess this is the semi-frequent thread where we can all bitch about a generation of people while painting with broad brushes, however.

    "Every generation but mine is terrible", said every generation for all of history. Am I doing this right?

    Kidding aside, I quietly have total respect for them. The overwhelming majority are good, kind people who practice what they preach. I think their beliefs are silly but..not saying a damn thing so long as that is the case.

I have to say things like "before you come ask me a question, write down the 3 things you've done to solve the problem first". A good part of it is that she's laaaaazy as fuuuuck. 90% of her questions could be answered by the goddamned googles. Why would she figure $#@! out when I can just do it for her?

    I don't give a $#@! if she's "smart".Being so $#@!ing hand-held and hovered over her whole life kills her value as an employee. She's 24.

    Can't imagine anything more pathetic than making blanket statements about an entire generation because you want to feel better about whatever age you were born in.

    You are a $#@!ing moron if you have participated in this stupidity.
