One prominent pollster, a Baby Boomer, is critical of his generation’s self-indulgence. A slacker-embracing, 41-year-old writer is unapologetic about descriptions he considers fitting for his fellow Gen Xers: ornery, skeptical, detached. And legions of Millennials, a cohort typically seen as team players, are readily acknowledging a significant self-indulgent streak.
The pollster, 60-year-old John Zogby, casts a negative eye on his fellow Boomers’ quest for perpetual youth and rues the rise of celebrities at the expense of role models. The writer, Jeff Gordinier, author of the recently published “X Saves the World” (Viking, $21.95), says Xers, many of whom have griped about being misunderstood, are actually more in danger of being overlooked.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
