Small minded and self-serving people will use any excuse to discriminate.at the soul level there might be a ''generational difference'' and that is... I might not know all the latest tech or trending stuff which someone a lot older than me somehow knows. The question though, do generational differences matter? It matters if a differentiation is made and when it's negative and discriminatory.
So, as time goes by, each generation advances, grows up, and experiences new things that put them in a different demographic or category. Our experiences of the world change, just as the world changes, and technologies we use to relate to each other change. But, I'm curious to know if generational differences have a real, significant impact on how we understand and communicate with each other? Does it matter in some contexts but not others? Which ones? Have generational differences affected you in any way, at work, school, friendships, etc.? Are you noticing significant differences among generations and how they approach work or life that you never noticed before?
Here's the breakdown of the Generations:
Yes generational differences matter, especially if we are talking about socio-economic differences among non-peers of different generations. They are all going to have a very different outlook on circumstances affecting the young adults and youth populations of the current age. Honestly, I really don't care. When I hear millennials talk about the unfairness of the situation that has been handed to us by the boomers, which much of what is said is true btw, I really can't see any practical positive response to the situation other than "Sucks to be you, but hopefully you can make it better somehow?". It probably sounds like whining to older generations. I don't think either side completely understands the other. All I can say is, I feel compelled to understand as much about the current times and how it got this way so I can best navigate the environment to accomplish my own goals and plans. I don't care how annoyed I get everytime I hear a "boomer" say "You just need to work harder", I'll never say "Ok, boomer". I'll just accept there's a difference in perspective; and I generate my own excitement for the terrible, awesome, and spellbinding future that awaits all of us. Times are changing; it's just very different than the past.
One way I like to say it is that for those boomers their mindsets dates back to when gas was 35 cents a gallon and one could afford a middle class life style on an single working class income including a home, a new car
severy two years, stay at home wife, kids, and the occasionalyearly vacation.
