Generation Y

Psychology
Tutor: None Selected Time limit: 1 Day

It has been asserted that Generation Y is more self-centered, and some would say, narcissistic, than other generations who came before. With the advent of social media, "selfies," and other Web 2.0 integration, this perception has gained more popularity in recent years.

Assuming this is the case, what does this mean for the future of this generation, and perhaps the future of Humanities? Provide any relevant examples to support your claim.

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Gen Y is the most photographed, videoed, informed and technologically savvy generation so far. Having that information and technology at their fingertips will allow them, and they may well demand it, to work what is currently considered non-traditionally. They will work from home, the car or the soccer field, but they will be informed and plugged in at all times.

So what skills will the generation need in future? They will need to be flexible and adaptable with such skills as critical thinking, problem solving, creativity and entrepreneurism, all of which can be applied across many different career paths. According to a Timesarticle, The Future of Work, the next big thing will come from entrepreneurs that have the skills and ambition to start companies up quickly. They will need to learn how they can turn their passion into profit by using their critical thinking skills and creativity. Youth in this generation will develop the skills to venture out and create new products and services very early.
