gen x vs gen y (Custom) How much does a couple of decades make in a culture? Gen X was raised in the turbulent era of the 60's and 70's, while Gen Y grew up in the peace of the 80's and 90's. But if you look at the other side of it, many of the Gen Xers are the parents of the younger Gen Y group. They've passed their religious and political beliefs and their morals on to their kids. How much of those views have been absorbed by the Gen Yers? How much of the views came from the Baby Boomers, who are also the parents of Gen Y?

Gen X are characterized by being more diverse in their thinking. They also saw the beginning of the technological era with home computers and video games. Change is the rule for this generation rather than the exception, since many of them are the children of divorced parents.

Gen Y is a generation that is more of what Gen X was. They are even more exposed to cultural and moral diversity and often consider themselves liberals. They have been raised with many more technological advances such as cell phones, internet, and social networks.

Due to financial crises that have come about during the lives of Gen Y, they are closer to their parents than Gen X and the generations before them. More of this generation lives at home to save money, but it's more than just for financial reasons. They believe their parents have better morals and values than their peers. They are willing to wait for marriage and kids until they are older and often make wiser decisions than previous generations.

Gen X believed that they could change the world by getting new leaders, whereas Gen Y is looking more to get along with each other and accept others. Gen X protested for change in a confrontational way. Those growing up as Gen Yers look to media to get their message out to the world. They join social networking sites and create blogs and webpages to speak their opinions. They prefer a peaceful means to spread their message.

Every generation influences the one that comes after it, either by creating followers of their views or by forcing opposers who are looking for change. Gen Y is influenced a little by both sides as they seek to find a middle ground for both change and acceptance.
