Every generation has its own unique characteristics. While the baby boomers were seen more as serious and hard-working people, the millennials are seen as narcissists and selfie- obsessed generation. But there is more to this generation than their smartphones. Here are 10 things that millennials do differently that older generations do not understand.
#1. Changing office culture
Their disdain for a life enclosed in a cubicle in apparent. They aren’t fans of office politics either. And that’s why you will find most of them as digital nomads roaming with their laptops and backpacks and taking up more co-working spaces.
#2. Living With Roommates
Living with roommates is no longer limited to sharing rent and doing part time chores just to get by until you get to a certain age. This generation is fairly acceptable of people living with roommates for a longer duration probably because of an increased cost of living.
#3. Netflix and Chill
The phrase can be used in multiple ways like watching Netflix until sunrise or finishing an entire season in one go or fooling around on the couch and turning on a movie that they aren’t going to watch.
#4. Usage of words like ‘Bae’ and ‘Adulting’
The millennial language is full of short words and terms you would have never heard before. For example, they use ‘Adulting’ for the process of taking up responsibilities and becoming a grown up. Another popular word is ‘Bae’ which became popular after a song and refers to someone dear.
