Mistaking The Youth

Being young and being a Gen Y (or an iGen for that matter) are not the same thing. The two are correlated, not dependant. Don’t confuse a mistake of youth as a Gen Y characteristic.

Every generation makes mistakes when they’re young. Don’t stereotype on something that applies to everyone. Even you.

    Youth "is in the eye of the beholder"

    I think there is a post surrounding this point being the difference between demographic and psychographic segmentation, & the usefulness of the latter.

    And the complete lack of usefulness of the former. ;]

    Well said! It happens all too often these days and is really quite annoying.

    I agree – us Gen Yers are often mistaken for old people!

    Get over the generation divide. Seriously dudes. Can we stop the buck here – or thereabouts? It's another 'divide' in society that has become increasingly, annoyingly, injected into everyday-speak.

    I am a gen nothing – i refuse to be labelled when Half of one generation are geriatrics and the other half of the other are over-confident, do-gooding little freaks. We are entities, existing in a time – space continuum, born in our each respective year. Damn marketers! :p What has happened to music, will happen to us…

    Punk rock ska core emo pop thrash thrash core skate core ska core soft rock rock pop pop rock screamo….. what a joke.

    What happens after Gen Z? Does it reset to A? That's not fair.
