Social studies: the generations, part 0

Self-tutoring about the generations we commonly encounter: the tutor begins….

As a tutor, I’ve worked with Baby Boomers (b. ’46 to ’64), GenXers (b. ’65 to ’76), Millennials (b. ’77 to ’95), and Centennials (b. ’96 →). What are some preliminary thoughts?

The individual’s personality is always more important than the generation they’re from.

In my experience, perhaps those of the current generation, the Centennials, possess an advantage: they don’t prejudge a situation as those from earlier ones might do. Put another way, the Centennials, in my observation, don’t have a sense of the absurd. Therefore, they are open-minded in a way that makes them perhaps the easiest to teach.
