Which Generation Are You?

 

 

Hey there guys. How was your day? I hope you all are doing well. Today we will be discussing an important topic Which generation are you? Humans have a natural tendency to form groups. Even if it is not for a reason. This is why you might have been labeled during your schooling years like nerds, freaks, jocks and so on. Essentially, they all do the same thing stereotyping.

Now I was shocked to know that we also label people according to the generations they were born in. It is one of the most useless labelings I have ever seen in my entire life. Labels I have so far come across are GI generation, Generation X, baby boomers, and millennials. They also tend to change names over time. Firstly, I don’t know who names them. Secondly, why do we have to change the names of some of the generations? For example, Generation X were previously known as Baby Busters.

The Baby Busters generation was named so because the birth rates dropped after the Baby Boomers era. Generation X was used by some authors and news publications which later became popular and hence it replaced Baby Busters. Baby Boomers were named so because of the boom in the economy and the fertility rates after World War 2. There was also a silent generation like the ones during the World War 2.

The problem marketers often tackle is that not everyone identifies with the label chosen for their generation. They were named so because they have seen the horror of a World War at a very young age. It was the most appropriate name given to a generation because it helped to define the collective attitude of people of that generation. They were much more mature than our present generation. Our generation have all the freedom in their life and yet they are unhappy. We are much more entitled then our previous generations.
