Okay, all I hear about now is the economy's favorite new target group, Generation Y, or those born after 1980 and the children of the Baby Boomers.

It's said you are the most studied group in history, mainly because you are as large as the Boomers in size and are the one's who are now defining the consumer culture (in other words, you're making the old guys rich).

This is what is said of you. Do you agree or disagree?

1. You spend more time on the Internet than watching TV.
2. Your parents are your best friends.
3. You don't like dissidents. You are very much more about the group than the individual.
4. IPods are your other best-friends.
5. Your musical taste is "hip-hop pop" with stars as Brittany, Jessica and Avril your role models.

Anything to add or delete from this list?

Well, to keep the sport in this as well. I think we're the generation of the body art as well. As for more nudity in everyday life. Same goes for Idolizing sport stars... I mean, all this was already there, but this generation took it to another level for sure!

Hah! This has been fun reading the posts. Regarding the pop stars, someone must like them, are they would be selling million$ of records.

Yah, I know but I don't like being mean. :p

Why are you unlikeable? Do you have fangs? I don't have friends either, but it's not because I am unlikeable (people seem to be drawn to me for some strange reason), it is because I am antisocial and I find it annoying that they want to converse with me all the time.

well thanks ;)

oh yes. fangs. bad breath. thick brown fur covers all of my body. it's scary.

i'm unlikeable (aside from the previously mentioned reasons) because of my astounding shortage of tact, sensitivity, and empathy for others. i'm also quite antisocial...but not because i don't want to talk to people...but because they don't want to talk to me :)

Ah, I see your point. No matter how atrocious one's social skills, tact to me is essential.

I am surprised so many people disagree with number three. They have actually done a few studies that show that because our generation (I am a 1983 baby myself) worked in groups MUCH more in school, and many times actually did teamwork units, we are extremely collabarative in comparison to our counterparts. That doesn't mean that there are not individuals or those who do not work well on teams. Its just in comparison to other generations, we work well together.

Well I was born again in 1985, and then again after the earthquake in San Francisco in 1989. Does that count?

I will answer since I barely made it:

1. You spend more time on the Internet than watching TV. Agree, epecially since my remote stopped working.

2. Your parents are your best friends. Disagree. I tell my mother a lot of things though.

3. You don't like dissidents. You are very much more about the group than the individual. Disagree. I care more about the individual and self-progress/self-preservation.

4. IPods are your other best-friends. Disagree. I'm not exactly sure what an Ipod actually does.

5. Your musical taste is "hip-hop pop" with stars as Brittany, Jessica and Avril your role models. Disagree. I listen because sometimes this popular stuff is unavoidable.
