Timothy Leary had a 2T way of thinking so he influenced things in the 2T. Ronald Reagan had a 3T way of thinking so he influenced things in the 3T. I'm not comparing the two, just stating some examples.

You are absolutely right. Gen Xers liked Reagan because he was basically like them. The sci-fi author Ray Bradbury had a boomer-like outlook (pacifism, appreciation of mythical thinking) despite having been born in 1920. Tolkien was born in the late 19th century, yet he was more like a Silent than a Lost. We even had a thread about people who don't fit their generational archetypes.

I don't think I have a millennial way of thinking, that's why I'm looking forward to new prophetic generation.

What do you disagree on over the Millennial way of thinking? I think that many of them infantilize people too much and don't want to let people make their own decisions. They also seem to think learning things on your own is impossible.
