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.
