The Generational Progression of Perspective


Have you ever wondered why different generations have such contrasting views? Have you ever spoken with a grandparent, parent, or teacher and wondered how they obtained specific perspectives? 


Now is your chance to gain insight about the world through the unique lens of four different generations. Over the course of a month, The Forge is going to be publishing an exclusive, limited series covering a variety of generational topics.


The goal of this series is to discuss the differing views held by four different generations: Baby Boomers (1946-1964), Generation X (1965-1980), Millennials (1981-1996), and Generation Z (1997-2012). 


Our goal is to bridge the gap between generations by creating a mutually beneficial understanding of how historical environments can result in unique views and belief systems. Each generation grew up in a different timeline, and yet it is often assumed that each generation views its timeline as “the correct” environment. Thus, it is important to understand the context behind a specific generation’s worldviews. 


In this series, we will be discussing how each generation views the progression of education, work ethic, dating, and various historical events. We will conduct a series of interviews to ensure that our research is unbiased with an accurate representation of all individuals. 


The Forge is still looking for people to interview and talk to, so please reach out if you would like to be a part of this article series!
