The  difference between the Generational gap … the way of Thinking, and things that truly matters in life.

The lessons of the past are ignored and obliterated in a contemporary antagonism known as the generation gap.” ~ Spiro T. “Agnew

Right now, we are going through a combination of doing, or some people will die. Yet I have read That many Nightlife hotspots were packed With people partying and drinking, as If nothing is happening, I was taken aback:

because those who don’t take the fact that the coronavirus is severe. They don’t believe it; what it comes down to is …their way of thinking.  In their mind…I  shouldn’t have to give up something, to save any old person.

In my opinion, it is the generational gap.

More specifically, a generation gap is the differences in actions, beliefs, and tastes exhibited by members of younger generations, versus older ones.

My Knowledge of the Generation Gap is that it plays a big vital role in industries; because companies must find ways to balance the needs and views of individuals from different age groups.

However, when it comes down to thinking critically–there are significant differences. Each generation has its characteristics regarding workplace attitudes, general consciousness, and ways of life.

For Example:

 

The Traditional Generation

 Traditionalists are commonly born between 1927 and 1945 and grew up during the Great Depression.

After World War 2, and the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941…the Great Depression survivors were instrumental in building the United States into an economic and Military Sovereignty.

This group is defined as being Patriotic…that had the cooperation, drive, tended to obey rules and respected authority.

Generation Baby Boomers

They are people who were born between 1946 and 1964.
History suggests that in 1946, it was the first year of the ‘boom,’ according to static, there were a million babies born in the United States during a 1-year period;

and the numbers steadily increased to roughly four million babies born between 1953 and 1964.

Consequently, I am delighted to be able to say—I can be labeled as ‘baby boomer because I was born in 1955.

My parents during this period, were successful significantly in helping to increase the number of births that occurred.

As a result– social and economic equality infiltrated the country —as it was being torn apart by the difference of opinions on politics, war, and  Social Justice.

Meanwhile—a Myriad of Baby Boomers participated in some of the greatest social changes in the country’s history—during the 1960s and 1970…with the Civil Rights Movement and the Women’s Movement.

Generation X

It is considered to be born between 1965 and 1980; Gen-Xers grew up with developing technologies and political and Institutional incompetence. The Watergate scandal, the Three Mile Island, and the Iranian hostage crisis.

Nonetheless, there were major technological advancements in high-speed copiers, fax machines, and emails.

Not to mention having heavyweight adding machines replaced by handheld calculators, and computers shrank in size and processing speed.

OMG…The Millennials

Those Born between 1980 and 1994, the era of cable TV, pagers, answering machines, laptop computers, and video games.  They are—I want it now generation driven by their expectation for proximity.

They are between the ages of 18 and 25 and, still have not become totally self-sufficiency. During this period of time— there were tragic events like the Columbine High School shootings of 1999 and the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

KEY TAKEAWAY

The older adults have advice on successful niches, and the young ones don’t want to hear about it.
