Generation X or ‘Gen X’ has the key characteristic of being brought up at a time where there was almost negligible adult supervision, which resulted in them developing strong musical tastes, as well as being go-getters and achievers. They are also characterized by good entrepreneur skills and being more productive in the workplace.
