My step-brother is solidly in Gen X, and my impression of them is that they're (by far) the most comfortable, both with themselves and the world at large. They're progressive enough not to be Boomer-esque Dinosaurs, but not so impulsive and unrelentingly angry as to have contributed significantly to the hyper-polarized state of the world today (that's all on boomers and millennials).
Personally I'm in a weird place, generationally. Technically I'm a Millennial, but born in 1983 right on the cusp separating them from Generation X. Add to that, growing up with my step-brother, who's about 12 years older than me, means I was exposed to and have nostalgia for all the things from both groups. I tend to think more like a Gen X'er, but have most of the Millennial problems.... namely, the cost of living (housing) making it nigh impossible to comfortably progress past a certain point in life, which means I get to live the lifestyle of an unmarried, childless 26-30 year-old with a full-time job in perpetuity. I guess that could sound good on paper (for a while), but the Gen X part of me is starting to maybe think about eventually wanting a kid now that I'm in my mid-30s.
