6 Bizarre Gen Z Trends We Simply Don’t Comprehend

Every generation has its distinct ways of doing things. The young of all ages act feisty and aggressive compared to their parents and grandparents, who have more life experiences that are useless to them in their youth.

The digitally-savvy Generation Zers are shaping their culture in ways that seem excessively weird to the rest of us.

Gen Z (Zoomers) must film everything to chronicle their daily lives and share photos and videos indiscriminately with the world. They ignore the potential downside of doing so without asking others for permission who may not seek the same attention and may hurt the feelings of others.

1. Filming Everything

Gen Z is known for documenting themselves and posting them on social media. However, this practice has become extreme when taking selfies on shaky ledges or dangerous stunts to get the best photo of themselves to post online, with sometimes tragic consequences.

2. Recording Themselves For Social Media

Prior generations tended to hide mental illness as an undesirable condition. In recent decades, mental illness is no longer stigmatized as it once was and has positively enabled those needing essential treatment.

3. The Glamorization of Mental Illness

This trend may resemble previous generations like Baby Boomers, Gen X, and Millennials. Some boomers and Gen X sought to be contestants on TV shows or at least be part of the audience for live performances, which were the earliest reality shows.

4. Going  Viral

Constantly on their phones, Gen Zs need to be more concerned about their privacy. They often broadcast where they are and going, especially when vacationing with friends and family.

5. Inviting Crime by Posting Their Whereabouts

Turning 16 and getting a driver’s license was a big deal. A recent study confirms that Gen Zers lack interest in driving. One parent said, “The world is not the same. My sixteen-year-old is not motivated to drive, and I’m not motivated to make him.”

6. Not Driving
