Boomers, on the other hand, can't get enough of being Boomers. Seventy-nine percent of adults 51-69 identified with the term. Likewise, 58% of those aged 35-50 considered themselves part of Generation X.
In addition to hating the term, Millennials also think pretty lowly of themselves. Of all the participants, 59% said they'd describe their generation as "self-absorbed," 49% said they are "wasteful," and 43% said they are greedy. Only 36% of Millennials considered their generation "hard-working," and out of all the generations surveyed, they were the most likely to think of themselves as "idealistic."
