    hah. I'm a decade younger than you and I am in agreement. Don't worry.

    My jaw nearly dropped off when i saw my 7 year old cousin whip out a cell phone. When i asked him about it, he said all the kids have them. I was like "Whaaaaa-----?!?"

    What I don't understand is why the parents actually roll with that. I mean, the parents are creating these monsters (lol... sorry). The parents are MY generation. *ick*

    people my age are like that too, but yeah, wikipedia says so. I suppose my age would be labeled borderline Generation Z.
    Everything that I express is simply an opinion with varying levels of support

    If I seem like a different type to you, I hereby give you permission to type me however you want.

    I actually have all of these values except for soft spokenness. I'm actually pretty agreeable and live well with other people and know how to share and work as a team, I've managed to get myself adopted into several other families since I left my grandparents home. Agreeability, I think falls into that.

    But I'm not afraid of confrontation either, obviously, anyone who is here knows this.

    I was described yesterday by a lady old enough to be my mother who knows me IRL as "the sweet, shy girl with a surprisingly strong backbone who doesn't break under pressure."

    I also can do things with one hand by virtue of being an ENFP Gemini. Multitasking is my life.

    BTW, I'm actually on the "cusp" of Gen X and Gen Y, so I don't relate 100% with either generation, I sincerely feel like I'm part of both. Especially "first wave" Gen Y and "third and fourth wave" Gen X.

    While I do think these things are generally overrated, I don't know how these things are specifically Generation Y related. If anything they are more rooted in the past generations....

    Yeah equality is a value of Gen X too.

    I think the "softer" values of Gen Y are more of a backlash against the blatant selfishness of the Me Generation and especially the Yuppies in the 80's.

    I'm not saying Gen Y isn't selfish, but I think that's why they have more collective consideration for other people.

    I thought Generation Y is often termed "Generation Me"?

    The Me Generation was in the 1970's. Might as well say they were in the Greedy 80's, as well.

    That's the last half of the Baby Boomers. They're the ones who have used up the world's resources, et al, and leaving us to pay for it.

    I'm not a big fan of Baby Boomers, btw, from their audacity to call Gen X the generation that did nothing, to their blatant self-serving "I'm gonna live forever!" I'm not a fan.

    That's why I don't criticize Gen Y too much, even the ones who are younger than me. Baby Boomers were the one who created "the monsters" if there are any.

    So many Baby Boomers didn't even raise their own kids, they left us with our grandparents and other relatives, et al.
