The most Gen X Xer Ever: David Goggins
#1
I think I found someone who embodies every characteristic of Generation X: David Goggins (EDIT: born 1975):


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTHzmRA_ZZw


This man had a very tough upbringing. He believes that suffering is what’s needed to truly overcome obstacles and to achieve greatness. He realized that nobody was there to help him at a young age and that he himself needed to rise to the occasion to become successful. 

Probably the most quintessential Gen Xer I have ever witnessed.

Correction: David Goggins was actually born in 1975, not 1976.

My friend was also born in 1975 and he is also a quintessential Xer. Grumpy, tough and a radical individualist. My online friend born in 1980 is another, but he insists that he is an Xennial.

Also, thank you Snowflake for the video. A great piece of advice. "No lying moments between you and yourself".

Me, I'd get along just fine with that guy.
