Below is a summary from a scholarly article about the differences between two generations.
The article describes the differences between Gen X and Gen Y (millennials). Some of the differences are risk taking, positivity, technology and the need for power. The authors point out that Gen Y are more likely to try new things as opposed to Gen X who likes to play it safe.
Gen Y also has a more positive outlook on life according to the authors. Generation X is perceived to be more cynical, less optimistic, and less idealistic and bound to traditional value systems (p. 73). Another difference is the use of technology. Generation X relies a lot on Web applications whereas Gen Y prefers collaborative tools such as cell phones, laptops, multimedia, instant messaging and social networking platforms. And lastly, the need to be in power. According to the authors, Gen X wants to be “in charge and to have control of critical organizational resources and decision-making mechanisms at work.” However, Gen Y prefers teamwork and collaboration.
