The Two Types of Millennials
According to a generational expert, there are two types of millennials: me-llennials and mega-llennials. The generation is divided and defined by two different life paths. One is moving forward professionally and financially, while the other feels their life has hit a wall. If you are a millennial, you might feel overwhelmed by financial struggles. Or perhaps you feel like you don’t fit the stereotypical millennial mold at all? Millennials are shaped by technological advancements and the world has labeled the generation as the brokest and the loneliest. Whichever group you find yourself in, you aren’t alone. President of the Center for Generational Kinetics and researcher of millennials, Jason Dorsey, told Business Insider about the two types of American millennials. Dorsey said the generational split has nothing to do with age; rather, it is associated with life paths and stages. Dorsey coined two terms to group them: “me-llennials” are struggling financially and might feel lost in life; “mega-llennials” are on top of their game.
