A phone zombie almost walked into me a couple days ago. I got out of the way just in time, and it just kept walking, like I wasn't even there.

And in case anyone doesn't already know this:

The phone Zombies are present world-wide. These 20 or less gens, and 30sh, 40sh too in the world, are looking at their smart phone's 22 hours out of 24!

They are obsessed and high just playing or tweeting in their SNS. The smart phone gens, they all hooked as being drug addict that can't shake off the lure of smartphones.

Some science was done and the result is: the current generation is not more and actually slightly less narcissistic (compared to 90s and 00s).
http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10. ... lCode=pssa

Also a long and detailed article that destroys the other myths with data:
http://www.bbc.com/capital/story/201710 ... un-to-hate
And although it’s tempting to infer an interpretation about commitment levels in that data (or to write a headline like, “Young Americans are killing marriage”), let’s not forget in the US it is baby boomers who not only have higher current rates of divorce than any other age group right now, but who also got divorced in unprecedented numbers when they were in their 20s and 30s.
US millennials are less likely to take their allotted leave days than their elders (even though, being more junior, they get the least time off).
This infographic of generations in the US suggests each generation has been becoming more metropolitan, better educated and more ethnically diverse, and less likely to be married or to have served in the military, than the last. Other notable findings have been that millennials are having less sex than did their elders at their age; around the world, they have a more global outlook; they’re less likely to participate in organised religion and more likely to live with their partner. But even some of these trends aren’t unique to millennials. Take cohabitation: the number of cohabiting adults over 50 in the US has risen 75% in the last decade.
But as the data shows, US millennials aren’t actually living with their parents in record numbers. Interestingly, that peak happened in 1940. (Those young people would have been members of what Americans now call the Greatest Generation). And while the economy is a factor, three out of four of those who live with their parents today aren’t “idle”: they have jobs or are in higher education.
Also:
Many of the stereotypes, and studies, come out of the US, where millennials now make up the largest living generation.
Linked from there: "Every Every Every Generation Has Been the Me Me Me Generation", the same "The Atlantic" that started this thread:
