They don't talk as much as Boomers or know as much about technology as Millennials, so sometimes they're just... there.
Generation X grew up when kids were allowed to stay home alone. They didn't need constant care when they were younger, and they don't want it now.
They don't spend all their time fighting like the Boomers or staring at their phones like Generation Z.
Gen X has seen it all, from records to CDs to VHS to streaming, and has changed with little trouble. Maybe not loud enough
While people in other generations are trying to figure out who they are, Gen X is more interested in living life without having a label.
Younger, more vocal people often have Gen Xers as parents.
Gen Xers don't like to talk about it as much as they like to do it. They would rather show than tell.
And they’re not always eager to share those “dark ages” stories with everyone.
Gen X went to work after the industrial revolution but before the tech boom. They have been working regularly without making a big deal out of it.
Gen X is happy to do their thing in the background, making quiet but important changes, while other generations fight for the attention.
