Three words to describe you: Bossy, compassionate, and tenacious.
What does it mean to be a Gen X-er? For myself, being a Gen X-er means being driven and hard working. We don't expect things to be handed to us; we set goals and work hard for what we want in life. We also don't think we deserve to win in every situation and actually look at failure as an opportunity to learn.
On the other hand, Gen X-ers can be stuck in our ways and leery of new ideas. It would help a lot if we would learn to listen to the younger generation and run with some of their new ideas.
