Were you born between the years 1977 and 1983? Have you ever felt like you don’t exactly belong to Generation X or the Millennial generation? Good news, you’re not alone and there’s a sub-generation that has got you covered: Xennials.
So what exactly identifies a Xennial? We found a perfect image floating the internet that can help explain.
Xennials had to grow up without the inventions of social media and advanced technology, but as adults they now can handle new tech easily and on a daily basis. They have had exposure to the best of both worlds: before and after digital advances. Those born in the late 70s and early 80s appreciate this term due to the fact that being lumped into the millennial category is not something seen favorably nowadays. Millennials are considered to be a selfish generation, who want instant gratification and overestimate themselves from constantly being told they are “special”. Gen X was not much better, while hard working, the generation came about during hard times and is marked by an apathetic attitude towards things and highly skeptical and cautious. Finally Xennials have a generation of their own where can identify with.
