I don't know...you get different types of people within each generation, so it's difficult to say. But I will say that I admire people that choose not to follow the crowd.

Yeah, the Baby Boomers are mostly those born in the late '40s and throughout the '50s. Some cut off the Boomer generation as early as '61, though '65 seems to be considered the start for Gen X in most sources I've read.

Anyway, I tend to relate to Gen X the best even though I am part of Gen Y.

The dates on the poll should be tweaked.

Gen X technically really starts in the mid-60's.
Boomers occur earlier.

(If I'm gonna be pigeon-holed, darn it, let me be pigeon-holed correctly! :D)

I'm Gen X, totally, by personality, and deal better with Gen Y than the Boomers, although I've had to live in Boomer culture for so long I "get them" pretty well.

Why is it that once Generation X comes along all creativity in naming goes out the wiindow?

100 years from now Generation M5XHC3 will think Generation M5XHC6 are all a bunch of rebellious punks.

That's because they are, dagnabit!!!

I think the tribal instincts between Boomers and Gen Y/Z is pretty cool.
Gen X'ers tend to be far more focused on the individual.

The Boomers are socially conscious, but it's more about conforming to the "right image."
Gen Y/Z seems to be far more tribal than Gen X, where group interactions are very common, except that everyone retains their own individuality within the collective. It's much more about variety and building something out of that, rather than building by trying to get everyone to conform appropriately.
