No two millennials are exactly the same

Like snowflakes, each millennial is different

Here are the top five types we’ve encountered in our office. Do you have any more to add?

The olympic texter

An unlimited texting plan might be enough for this one. With the ability to text dozens of people at a time and send a page-long text in nanoseconds, sign this millennial up for a speed texting tournament. Or give them an Excedrin—for their thumbs.

The poking warrior

This kind of millennial knows how to navigate a good ‘ole fashion “poke.” And they constantly stalk friends and family, with a variety of wall postings and messages. Their relationship status is always in the flux, depending on what happened at the bar on Friday night.

The over-tweeter

These millennials use their Twitter accounts to share every thought that goes through their mind. And what they ate for lunch. Yes, we know, we know—calzones are good, but please, we really don’t care.

The TMI Blogger

Blogging has become a big part of the millennial culture. That’s too bad. Sometimes, we just think things are better left unsaid—or written down in a diary.

The anti-millennial

To be considered a millennial, you need to be born between 1980 and 2000. But not every millennial has jumped on the social media bandwagon. These millennial-types own cell phones that are only capable of making phone calls. How quaint.
