    Hybrid Years and Sub-Generation Theory

    To me, generations don’t make sense. I changed my mind on how I see them as I can never understand how people who are ten years apart can be in the same generation. So a more realistic way of looking at generations is by shortening them to a maximum of 4-6 years called sub-gens. However, there are some years that wouldn’t necessarily fit into a single sub-gen. These years would be known as hybrid years as they tend to be very unique from the other years by being a border between the two sub-gens. Another thing I changed my mind on is this classification would not go by the class you are in and what year your graduating because that tends to be very difficult to define universally as many countries and even states have different cutoffs for grades. Instead it would go simply by years from January to December.


    Core Millennials: 1986 - 1990 (Peak Year: 1988)

    Late Millennials: 1992 - 1996 (Peak Year: 1994)

    Early Gen Z: 1998 - 2002 (Peak Year: 2000)

    Core Gen Z: 2004 - 2008 (Peak Year: 2006)

    Hybrid Years: 1985 (Early/Core Millennial), 1991 (Core/Late Millennial), 1997 (Late Millennial/Early Gen Z), 2003 (Early/Core Gen Z), 2009(Core/Late Gen Z)

    I actually agree with this.

    The only problem is that '98 borns aren't really Early Z, given that they were never in high school under Trump and could vote in 2016. To me, 1999-2002 is more Early Z.

    But the way you broke up the years is probably one of the most accurate I've seen.

    The reason that made me pick 1998 of being Early Z is that it’s closer in age with the Early Z Peak Year 2000 than it is with the Late Millennial Peak Year 1994. While the hybrid years are in the same distance between both peak years. For example, the 1997 borns are in the same distance between the 1994 borns as it is with the 2000 borns. Or the 2003 borns are in the same distance between the 2000 borns as it is with the 2006 borns, etc.

    I feel like 2000 babies have more in common with 1997 babies than 2003 babies.

    I’d say 2000 borns have just as much in common with 1997 borns as they do with 2003 borns. It’s literally the exact same distance. It may seem like that now since 2003 borns are in high school now while 2000 borns and 1997 borns both have graduated. But once 2003 borns graduate high school, the similarities between them and then 2000 borns will show more

    Well, 2000 babies were alive before 9/11, they had core childhood in the mid-2000s (2005/06), are 2000s kids, were in school before the iPhone launched, the 7th generation of console gaming begun, and the electopop era begun, will be able to vote in the 2020 election, became a legal adult in the 2010s, began high school in 2014, the first half of the 2010s, and was in high school at the time of the 2016 election. All of which don't apply to those born in 2003.

    1997 borns were able to vote in the 2016 election, graduated under Obama, while 2000 borns graduated under Trump, going by the 5-11 main childhood definition, 2000 borns actually had their core childhood mostly in the late 2000s (2005-2011) while 1997 borns mostly had it in the mid 2000s (2002-2008), 1997 borns mostly grew up with 6th gen consoles while 2000 borns mostly grew up with 7th gen, 2000 borns spent most of elementary school after the iPhone launched while 97 borns only spent one year of elementary school after it was launched, 2000 borns were in elementary school when Obama was elected while 1997 borns were in middle school, 2000 borns spent half of elementary school during the electropop era (2008-2011), while 1997 borns spent that era in middle school, 1997 borns were born in the 90s while 2000 borns were born in the 2000s, 2000 borns were in high school during the March For Our Lives and the 2016 election while 1997 borns were in college, 1997 borns entered high school in the early 2010s when Facebook was the biggest social media platform for teens, while 2000 borns entered high school in the mid 2010s when Instagram was the biggest social media platform for teens, 1997 borns entered elementary school in the early 2000s when the Powerhouse and Klasky Csupo eras were still going on, while 2000 borns entered elementary school in the mid 2000s when those eras were gone, 1997 borns entered middle school in the late 2000s, while 2000 borns entered middle school in the early 2010s, 1997 borns were in middle school during half of the Great Recession and its 2009-2011 aftermath, while 2000 borns were still in elementary school during that time. 1997 borns are just as different from 2000 borns as 2003 borns are just as much different from 2000 borns

    Same with 1994 and 1997 babies differences.

    A 3 year gap in many cases is large. Until you reach adulthood.

    Everyone who is 3 years older will always have as much in common with you as someone 3 years younger. That doesn’t necessarily mean their similar. Their will always be an equal amount of similarities and differences between every year thats 3 years apart

    I agree. That's all I have to say really.
