Top 10 Positive Traits of Millennials

marmalade_skies
Millennials are generally people born from 1980 to 2000. Generally, at the core, people from age 20 to 30 fit in the group. The word millennial tends to carry a negative stigma but there's also a lot of good traits that our young generation has.

Just to clarify, THIS IS NOT A GENERALIZATION OF ALL MILLENNIALS. This is simply talking about averages, and on average millennials are more likely to be...

The Top Ten

1 They learned from their parents mistakes V 1 Comment
2 The recession will make them resourceful

The recession that has plagued millennials just entering the job market will have many negative effects but it will also build their character. Our generation knows not to abuse our credit cards and we know how to say "I can't afford that right now so I'm not going into debt." - marmalade_skies

3 They place a high value on education

High school graduation and college enrollment for our generation is the highest it's ever been. - marmalade_skies

4 They question conventions

There's a lot of beliefs and traditions in society that have been accepted by past generations but we look at them more objectively since we don't have the nostalgia of the good old days. - marmalade_skies

5 They are politically independent

Compared to previous generations, less millennials identify as Democrat or Republican in the United States. Maybe in a few decades, third party candidates might actually stand a chance. - marmalade_skies

6 They're more tolerant

We more tolerant of homosexuality, soft drug use, people of different races, cultures, sexual orientations and lifestyles. - marmalade_skies

7 They delay big decisions until we're prepared

We're getting married and having kids at later ages. Granted, it is due to economic concerns. But also, it's a good thing in that marriages after age 25 tend to have a lower divorce rate, and a parent that's older/more stable can provide more for their children. - marmalade_skies

8 Averse to dangerous risks

Drugs, crime and casual sex are at all-time lows for millennials. - marmalade_skies

9 They are pragmatic idealists

Neither as blindly optimistic as baby boomers, nor notoriously cynical as Gen X'ers. They do expect big changes in the world and our social norms, but they are also aware that progress does not come easy. We know that progress comes slow no matter how hard we work at it, but we still expect things to change. - marmalade_skies

10 Are savvy with technology

We basically grew up with high-speed internet, microsoft office and other applications. We're well familiar with it and computer illiteracy in general practically does not exist. - marmalade_skies
