Generation X is variously called Gen X, baby bust generation or MTV Generation and they are the generation of Americans born between 1965 and 1980. Gen X is positioned between baby boomers (1946 – 1964) and millennials (1981-1996) and they had less adult supervision as children, which helped them to learn the value of independence and find work-life balance, per Encyclopedia Britannica. They are also regarded as resourceful and cynical and sometimes, people even call them the "forgotten generation." But the internet never lets us forget that Gen X had a gala time while growing up.
