2011 Mindset List

Thousands of 18-year-olds are packing up and beginning college this year, and that means it's time for Beloit College's annual Mindset List. I always find it very interesting to read. To paraphrase:
The List outlines the events, social forces, and technology that shape the world views of these young adults, most of whom were born in 1989. The 70-item list highlights differences between these newfound adults and those who are older and more experienced. Some are funny, some serious, and some poignant.
Here's the list.

You know, Beth was born in 1990 - so this list is probably pretty close to her world view, too. Do you think it'll help me understand her better?


  1. I don't know if that list will help you understand her any better, but I thought it was a HOOT!

  2. Thank you for stopping by. I heard some of the items on this list today on my local radio while I was driving to work.

    You know, I remember tv in black and white...and being the remote for my parents...


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
