This week on the Gen Y Chronicles podcast, Jasmin and I tackle some complex topics that affect Gen Y. Listen to our personal experiences and stories about the age perception gap between North America and Europe, and our opinions about the evolution of emotional maturity in Millennials.
0:40 – How do you define emotional maturity?
2:25 – Do Millennials value family less and less while career is becoming overvalued?
9:21 – Growing out of your shell of shyness
9:50 – How age is perceived differently in Canada versus Germany
17:45 – Has the infantilization of youth in North America created an age perception gap between North America and Europe?
20:59 – The “tween” phenomenon. Clarification: There seems to be multiple definitions of the word “tween”. My interpretation is based on the word’s origin from J.R.R Tolkien’s book, The Hobbit (Words you never knew came from literature). A “tween” is someone between the ages of 20 and 33.
