As of the last few years, the term “millennial” has been used a lot, and usually with a negative connotation. As a 23 year old millennial or Generation Y, I constantly hear complaints about my generation.
Though I am part of the Millennial age group, I feel a good amount of disconnect from majority of the stereotypes based off the “studies” being done. I find it strange that a fairly wide age and cultural demographic (18-34 year olds) is generalized into one category with a lot of stereotypes that don’t always ring true. People come from different cultural backgrounds, upbringings, wealth, and consist of varying ages, and one may not relate well with others. Nonetheless, I have heard many generalizations of how messed up we millennials are.
So, I decided to be narcissistic for a day and made a small list of my favorite millennial stereotypes below.
