When you think about the generations, you have Baby Boomers, Generation X, Millennials, and Generation Z.
The youngest kids are part of Generation Alpha, which starts in the early 2010s.
Instead of using all of those “fancy” names, we separate the four adult categories into three: Boomers, Doomers, and Zoomers.
Each one has unique characteristics to consider.
Who Are Boomers?
Boomers are the generation that came right after World War II. They’re broken into “early” and “late” categories.
Although there are always exceptions, the average Boomer prefers ignorance to knowledge. They spend money instead of saving it. Their beliefs about the world are often outdated and discriminatory.
The younger Boomers aren’t moving on from their perspectives, even though the older ones and the Doomers are. That means you can find them gathering together, sharing conspiracy theories, and wringing hands because they see the youth and their video games as the problem with society.
Who Are Doomers?
Doomers tend to be the Gen X’ers and Millennials who see misery and doom on the horizon of every decision. When suffering occurs, it is a mark of the generation. Although it seems depressing and overly critical, they are also the first generation in American history to be worse off than their parents.
Doomers were just getting going financially when the Great Recession hit in 2007. By the time most of them recovered, COVID-19 took everything away again.
Since their Boomer parents are often still working, they have no room to advance. If you think about it, that does seem a little depressing.
Who Are Zoomers?
Generation Z is the first 100% online generation. They represent the first attempt at a global, instantaneous culture. You’ll find them playing Minecraft, vlogging on their YouTube channel, and sneaking cryptocurrency behind their parent’s back.
