A Better Model

This generation chart was brought to my attention on Twitter:

Generation XYZ

On the plus side, this model includes Generation Y. On the downside, it makes the common mistake of identifying Gen Y with the Millennials. A closer look also shows the tail end of Generation Jones appended to Generation X, the usual misidentification of Gen Y as “Late Gen X”, and the same blurring of the line between the Millennials and the Zoomers.

B- for effort.

I took the liberty of correcting the overwrought model above according to my painstaking generational research.

Here’s the result:

Generation XYMZ

Much cleaner, more efficient, and communicates the key ideas at a glance. Not only is this model more rhetorically sound, it conveys age demographic facts more effectively.

The next time confusion arises as to when Generation Z began, or someone denies that Gen Y exists, share this handy infographic.

And as always, don’t give money to people who hate you!
