Millennial Stereotypes: How Soon You Forget, Gen X…

No matter what circles you travel in I can almost guarantee you’ve heard a Millennial stereotype. “They’re so entitled!” or “They think they deserve a trophy for anything they do.”

Or my personal favorite, “They don’t respect authority and think they know it all.” While some stereotypes are founded on reality, these stereotypes struggle to hold weight as being unique to Gen Y or universally correct. 

In this episode of The 2 Minute Millennial we’ll focus on one of the biggest and most unlikely contributors to the wave of millennial bashing: Gen X. You’ll find some very interesting parallels between the generations and how they were viewed by their predecessors.

I also provide some meaningful ways for the middle child and the fledgling younger siblings to play nice.

So sit back and enjoy the trip down memory lane. We want to hear some of the millennial stereotypes you’re hearing and how you feel about them in the comments. If you’re a gen x’er and you feel like the stereotypes are true, share your experiences that validate your feeling. Thanks for tuning in.

I help brands bridge the gap between who they are and who they want to be. I speak fluent #millennial and can be found agitating traditional thinking on a daily basis. My passion is finding new and innovative ways to understand consumer preference and then turning those insights into business ideas that help deliver the right message/product to the right person at the right time on the right platform.

    There’s a more human way to do business.

    In the Social Age, it’s how we engage with customers, collaborators and strategic partners that matters; it’s how we create workplace optimism that sets us apart; it’s how we recruit, retain (and repel) employees that becomes our differentiator. This isn’t a “people first, profits second” movement, but a “profits as a direct result of putting people first” movement.
