Subject: There is no point in arguing about exact generational cutoffs

Written By: GuapitoChico on 08/29/19 at 12:32 pm

Take a look at this color spectrum. You can definitely see regions of cyan, red, green, blue, yellow, etc. However, if you were to divide them into specific block-cut sections per color, you would have a difficult time. Where would you draw the exact line between the oranges & reds? Between blue & cyan? You can't, at least not that objectively.

Generations are like this. From afar, you can definitely see differences between age groups. However, the exact cutoff per age group is indeterminate.
Even Pew says that generations are a lens, not a box.
