iGen - born between 1995 and 2012 - has never known a world without smart phones, Amazon and Facebook (which they no longer use). AKA GenZ, they are glued to the internet, socialize in person less and have higher rates of anxiety and depression. They party less, get along better with their parents and are more open-minded than any generation before them. Dr. Jean Twenge analyzes data from decades of nationally representative studies to bring us closer to understanding this next generation and our future. Author of more than 120 scientific publications and 3 books, her work is covered in The NY Times, Washington Post, Today, NBC Nightly News, Fox and Friends, Dateline and NPR.
