Generation X is filled with unique individuals that were unlike any generation before or after them. They were the generation in between the Baby Boomers and Millennials. Just like any other generations, they have their own stereotypes and generalizations. They grew up with different ideas and feelings than their parents and felt the same way when they had their own children.
Do you know what a short form term for the generation is? What about how the generation felt towards the topics of work, play, and the world? Do you know what they were like throughout their childhood, adolescence and now in their adulthood? Although it is hard to describe them as individuals, as a collective group they do have certain traits, values, and feelings.
Do you know how most Generation Xers evaluate their success in life? How about their buying habits or how they handle their finances? Can you name what they love, what worries them and what they hate? Generation X has a valuable and unique perspective on life that no other generation really shares.
The world would be ordinary if there were just one group of individuals who thought and acted the same way. As time goes by, generations experience different times and situations that make them different. Generation X was no exception. If you think you truly know and understand them, test yourself with this quiz!
