notheywillnot has earned the respect of peers.

I was born in the late 90s making me Generation Z.

My generation seems to span from young people who just entered adulthood to young kids still in school. My generation is still being formed by today's world. The people of my generation embrace modernity but are arrogant due to us having little understanding of the real world.

In hopes of being able to answer your question about why post-millenials: I think that one of the greatest makers of the generation is that we are still enjoying life at youth. The "younger older-half" is aware of politics but do not bother enough to express themselves publicly probably because our lives are not being much affected by politics directly; many of us do not get direct politcal information but rather through social media; my friend and I often discuss politics and express our political views with our other friends and acquaintances, but never publicly. The oldest of our generation have just taken their step into true adulthood and need to focus their time on matters such as education, work and getting started in life and in their spare time they prefer relaxing and enjoying youth (hanging out, going out with friends etc..).

I can get along with millennials and the mid and older half of the post-millennials (I don't really get along with the younger ones). I have a small overlap with the X generation but nothing significant.

My parents are from Generation X.

I have a question. I've noticed that I am very young compared to some of you and wanted ask how young do users get here / how young are the youngest users here in the community

These generations are arbitrarily defined, and honestly the assumption is bogus. Social changes affect pretty much all of society simultaneously.

Its the sociological counterpart of MBTI tests in psychology - junk people think of as though it were fact.

Chlodovech has disabled reputation

Before I knew the generation of my dad was called "the Silent Generation", I already had come up with that term myself, it seemed so apt. They're silent. They never caused a ruckus. They're conservatives at heart. These people were born too late to fight in WW2 or to even have conscious memories of it. The hero generation, the veterans of WW2, should've teamed up with the Silents and crushed the Babyboomer insurgency. The Heroes could've given the Silents leadership. I know the generation of my dad fairly well and my conclusion is that leadership is mainly what these fellows lack(ed).

MarsOsix shows some promise.

I'm not really sure whether I'd be "millennial" or "post-millennial". I notice a big cultural difference between people my age and the cohort just maybe a year or two below that I don't see going up, so I'm inclined to think the former.

I would bet anything they plotted this out decades ago as stages in their destruction of our people and culture. The "boomers" were the "sixties" generation, who they brainwashed to believe that being "counter-culture" was cool. "millennials" are their targeted generation to be outright anti-white, since beginning in the late 80s and early 90s, the music industry, led by (((Sumner Redstone))) and (((Edgar Bronfman))) only promoted white artists if they were the most pussified whiners like Beck and Radiohead, and only promoted black artists if they were hardcore "gangstas." This gave impressionable teenage white girls the idea that white men were weak and poor choices for mates, while black men were strong and masculine. Trust me, this was 100% intentional social engineering.
Hmm, I understand what you mean, and I agree that we shouldn't use generation as a primary identity factor, however I think it's indisputable that certain general generational traits exist, of course they're generalisations like the traits of an era, nonetheless history can also be divided in eras, and generations have specific traits related to the time and age they developed in. For example, Gefjon mentioned the "MTV generation". Like Juthunge, I can't really identify with most peoples from the millennial generation and I get along better with peoples who are older than me, or with traditional, "old fashioned" peoples. Sometimes I have a feeling I was born in the wrong era. But my lack of identification also emphasizes the dominant mentality. But that said, I'm not a generationist, and won't discriminate someone just because they come from a certain generation.

Some other interesting informations to the topic of generations:

Quote:
The Strauss–Howe generational theory describes a theorized recurring generation cycle in American history. However, the authors have also examined generational trends elsewhere in the world and described similar cycles in several developed countries. It identifies four generational archetypes as Prophet, Nomad, Hero, and Artist (who repeat sequentially).

Summary

An average life is 80 years, and consists of four periods of ~20 years
Childhood → Young adult → Midlife → Elderhood

A generation is an aggregate of people born every ~20 years
Baby Boomers → Gen X → Millennials → Post-Millennials ("Homeland Generation")

Each generation experiences "four turnings" every ~80y
High → Awakening → Unraveling → Crisis

A generation is considered "dominant" or "recessive" according to the turning experienced as young adults. But as a youth generation comes of age and defines its collective persona an opposing generational archetype is in its midlife peak of power.

Dominant: independent behavior + attitudes in defining an era

Recessive: dependent role in defining an era

Dominant Generations

Prophet: Awakening as young adults. Awakening, defined: Institutions are attacked in the name of personal and spiritual autonomy

Hero: Crisis as young adults. Crisis, defined: Institutional life is destroyed and rebuilt in response to a perceived threat to the nation's survival

Recessive Generations

Nomad: Unraveling as young adults. Unraveling, defined: Institutions are weak and distrusted, individualism is strong and flourishing

Artist: High [when they become] young adults. High, defined: Institutions are strong and individualism is weak
