Calling millennials the “Me Me Me Generation” is like writing a biography of Neil Armstrong called “The Nice Guy From Ohio”. It may be true, but it misses the point. Neil Armstrong is remarkable because he landed on the moon. Millennials are special because we have access to more information, and therefore choices, than any other generation before us. That’s the trait that most defines our behavior and sets us apart from previous generations at our age. Not narcissism.
Call us the “Decisions Decisions Decisions” Generation Instead.
