I’m a “boomer.”  So are most of my friends.  They’re boomers too.  Boom boom.  But I have to admit to being a little dense about the other generational monikers that are assigned to different age groups. Soooooo, I figured that this would be a good opportunity to learn.   Since this is all new to me – and may be to you – here’s the scoop . . . .

Born between 1900 and 1924?  You’re in the G.I. Generation (not many of these folks left)

1925-1945 — You’re in the Silent Generation (endured Depression and war)

1946-1964 — You’re a Baby Boomer (off the charts IQ, multi-talented, handsome, suave, debonair, glib, trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent).

1965-1979 — You’re a Generation X (the “lost” generation.  First generation of latchkey kids.  Exposed to lots of daycare and divorce.  Lowest voting participation of any generation)

1980-2000 — You’re a Millennial or Generation Y (tech savvy.  Exposed to “it all.”  Very segmented, racially, ethnically diverse)

2001-Present — You’re a New Silent Generation or Generation Y (the jury is still out)

I would sure like to be a Generation Y . . . . knowing what I do today.
