Growing up with MTV certainly puts me in the Millennial camp. From following the latest drama going down in the Real World house to jamming to the newest videos hosted by Carson Daly, I came of age with an appreciation (in this case, meaning knowledge) of overly dramatic spats and overly constricted clothing. I’ve moved past my MTV days though, as Pimp My Ride didn’t really do it for me.
That said, I was very pleased to see MTV issue a press release rebutting some of the fresh claims about “Generation Me” aka Millennials. A recent academic study purports that my generation is minimally interested in “participating in a community action program” (Millennials, 36%), and sees a decrease in “developing a meaningful philosophy of life” (Baby Boomers 73.0%; Gen X: 46.9%; Millennials, 44.6%).
