breaking apart the boom

846 7
Are you an early boomer or a late boomer or a generation joneser or a nonboomer? I was curious so I'm making this poll. All are welcome to vote. Also all are welcome to comment. You can choose more than one, if it applies to you.

Excuse me,

how could we choose more than one?
If you were born in the mid 1960s, you could choose more than one if you feel that you identify with more than one (generation jones and generation x). That's why I said "about 1965," to leave it open to interpretation.

Just to satisfy my curiosity, is there anyone on this forum born before December, 1941?
I think that @SirDave might be, but I'm not sure.

I was, in May; I'm a member of the "Silent Generation"

As far as I know, the most conclusive work done regarding the generations was done by Strauss & Howe. There book Generations takes into account the generations from the founding if the country to the present. America as regarding its generations has developed its own generational cycles separately and more more less apart from he rest of the world and the cycles are well defined as being about 80 years in their book.

As for the Silent Generation:
" The Silent Generation, with birth years of 1925 to 1942, has been compliant, process-oriented, and especially attuned to "fair play," toleration, and compromise. The "silenters" have two other demographic features which shape their characteristics: They are the smallest and the most homogeneous of all the generations now alive in America. This has meant an eagerness to welcome diversity as a way of breaking up the boredom, and it has meant seeking vehicles for including diverse elements without controversy or divisiveness--hence conflict management and inclusiveness.

I'm a Jonesian boomer although often when I hear boomers described it sounds more like my pre-boomer parents than like me.
