The Boomers developed a value system based on a sense of entitlement and that the values of individuality. Because they have these values, Boomers respond differently to each stage of life than other generations. You can see these values reflected in scenes like the television programs of the 1950s and early 60s. According to Smith and Clurman, four important characteristics of the value system of Baby Boomer are: Selfishness: baby boomers (once called the "Me" Generation) have the reputation of being more narcissistic than other generations. Due to the times we grew up, they have always been fascinated with themselves.
An indulgence that we live in the 1950s and the seemingly limitless possibilities created a fascination with the world itself and a feeling of being special. Sense of entitlement: a generation, boomers are considered superior to others. Who have always assumed that life could have his way and that the rules were made for others, but not for them. Feel entitled to rewards and see themselves as winners. They expect success and can not accept failure. Need for control: the baby boomers need to feel safe and that are in control of life. They have a difficult time dealing with uncertainty.
Reflection: Baby Boomers have always valued introspection and the pleasure of asking questions . For most people, life at the age of 45 or 50 does not match the dreams I had at the age of 20 or 30. When people reach the age of 45 or 50 and even a little disappointed by their achievements and experiences, feelings may be aggravated by these factors of self-absorption, sense of entitlement and a need control.
