4 Millennial Stereotypes Decoded

mill-stereo

Millennials face constant stereotyping, with it mostly negative. Every time I blink a new article about millennial stereotypes pops up in my feed. I decided to find the most common stereotypes and decode them to be more like reality.

Not Entitled, Ambitious

Entitlement is probably the number one most common stereotype of millennials, but it is really that they are ambitious and have clear ideas of what we want out of our lives and careers. We have an idea of what we want and are willing to ask for it.
Not Sidetracked, Savvy

Older generations view technology as a major distraction for millennials, but with technology becoming a major piece of our world now, the knowledge and skill that millennials have with tech is actually a benefit.
Not Hopping, Growing

Millennials are criticized for job hopping and not committing to a position for more than a couple years. This happens because millennials are always searching for new opportunities that fulfill their ambitious goals, and if their current job doesn’t meet that, they move on.
Not Lazy, Rested

Millennials are getting more sleep than previous generations, and while older generations find that being lazy and unmotivated, it’s actually that they care about their health and wellness and find that getting full night’s sleep and rest is beneficial for their lives.

What stereotypes of millennials have you seen? Let me know with a comment.

  2. As a millennial and someone who has lived outside of this country, I have respectfully disagree. There are positive things about millennials, and I do agree that with the world being more technologically advanced our knowledge of the technology can greatly influence our society. Anyway, thanks for sharing your view!
