Another complaint about

What do older people think is
wrong with Millennials?
“The boomers don’t like the Millennials because they think the
younger generation are feckless,
whiny snowflakes who are
scared of hard graft and obsessed by status, more interested in posting a selfie to social
media than doing anything useful” (The Independent, Feb 9th,
If you were born any time after
roughly the mid-1980s, you fall
into the category of people referred to as the “Millennials.”
This page will give you a quick
overview of some of the things
that have been written about the
Millennial generation.

For starters, they’re
prone to narcissism.
According to figures
from a survey of
35,000 people that was
funded by the National
Institute of Health, 2029 year olds display
extreme narcissism at
three times the rate
that people older than
65 do. One
psychologist has used
the term “selfie
syndrome” to discuss
the “often-inflated
egos” of children born
since the ‘80s.

Millennials is that they’re
technology-obsessed. One
journalist recently summarized
the results of a European study
as indicating that “young people
are so addicted to their
smartphones that being
separated from them causes
post-traumatic stress disorder”
It’s fair to be skeptical of such
claims, but there is a common
belief that Millennials can’t
handle being without
technology. Writing in Time,
Joel Stein reports that 70% of
Millennials check their phone
every hour and spend the whole
day interacting with others—but
“almost entirely through a
screen.” A 2016 survey by Bank
of America found that 40% of
Millennials “interact more with
their smartphones than they do
with their significant others,
parents, friends, children, or coworkers .”

Two other common beliefs about
Millennials are that they are lazy
and entitled. A New-York lawyer
describes one Millennial colleague
who “billed 12-hour days — six
hours playing on the computer, the
other six doing work.”
Marianne Miles, owner of a UK
media management company
expresses something similar, saying
that “Millennials are lazy and think
basic tasks are beneath them,” while
James Roberts, manager of a travel
industry organization complains
that Millennials are “so full of selfregard...that they see their very
presence in a company as a privilege
for their employer.” Author Simon
Sinek suggests that Millennials are
the way they are because their
parents “told them they were special
all the time,” and “gave them
medals for coming in last.”
