The snowflake generation. Have you heard such a phrase? It is often used to describe current teens and young adults. The phrase has been famous online for several years already. And many have been called snowflakes for valid reasons and not.
Have you been called a snowflake? At least once, right?
While people only mainly reveal their anger management issues and insult everybody around, this quiz determines how much of a snowflake you are. Based on your opinions and actions, not the stress level of your companion.
Snowflake Person Origins
The origins of the phrase date back to the middle of the 19th century. Throughout the years, it had a political meaning and was connected to slavery issues and so on. Of course, we all know this phrase from the iconic movie Fight Club as well.
In the 90s, it was already used in the current interpretation. Just remember the quote: “Listen up, maggots. You are not special. You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake. You are the same decaying organic matter as everything else.”
It was said in the meaning of uniqueness. So that people wouldn’t think highly of themselves as I they are as unique as one in-universe snowflake. It was used in the meaning of equality.
Today, the term has gained a more derogatory meaning. In addition to the Fight Club interpretation, it now means an entitled person who is readily upset or hurt by trivial things. It indicates a person who can’t handle the harsh reality of life.
If you want to live in a fairy tale where everyone is polite to you, the society is kind; the economic and ethical are soled once and for all, you are a snowflake. Of course, striving for all these things should be the life goal of all people, but a snowflake usually lives in a world with its own rules.
Snowflake Generation Quiz
To my mind, stereotyping a whole generation as snowflakes is too much. There are sensitive people, entitled people, and hardworking toughies at all times. We have such people currently as well. It’s hard to stereotype when you live alongside the sins of modern people. Our brain tends to remember only the best, which is why we think that past generations are better at specific issues. When, in fact, people are different overall. No matter what century they live in. You don’t think that there were no lazy, entitled snowflakes in the middle ages, right?
Anyway, this Snowflake quiz is meant to determine whether you show the snowflake signs and to what degree. Are you just a little bit of a snowflake? Which seems totally fine to me. Or are they the biggest “most unique” snowflakes out there?
