    Good article! I never considered myself a millennial, but according to the dates given, I am. I’d add one more: many of us grew up in “progressive” families and schools, where we called the teachers by their first names, and the like. We were not told, “Be deferential and quiet JUST BECAUSE this person is older than you.”. My parents taught me to be respectful of everyone, but only obey/trust/give allegiance to those who have shown they deserve it. Therefore, when I am in a job, I will be polite and respectful to everyone– from the janitor to the CEO– but just being “the boss” does not earn you additional favor until you show me that you are competent. I think that is common among people my age.
