Which “Generation” are you? And do you “overlap” with any or all of them?
Generation Y has become the popular nickname for current teens and young adults.
Millennial Generation refers to those born after 1980, the first generation to come of age in the new millennium.
Generation X covers people born from 1965 through 1980. X-ers are often depicted and described as savvy entrepreneurial owners.
Baby Boomer is drawn from the greet spike in births that began in 1946—following the end of World War II the year before—and ended almost as abruptly in 1964, around the time the birth control pill first went on the market.
Silent Generation describes adults born from 1928 through 1945. Children of the Great Depression and World War II, their “silent” label refers to the conformist and civic instincts that we associate with many of them. (It also makes for a nice contrast with the noisy waves of the anti-establishment boomers.)
Greatest Generation, those born before 1928, is the generation that fought and won World War II, both overseas and on the home front.
