A regular topic around the dinner table and in social scientists’ research, the differences in behavioral, emotional and social characteristics between generations is a subject that fascinates many. Viewers will learn what social scientists have observed about how our personalities are, and are not, influenced by when we were born. During this webinar, Dr. Chris Barry from WSU’s Department of Psychology will discuss three primary perspectives on generational differences: cohort, developmental, and individual. A brief discussion of the influence of sociocultural factors in psychosocial development will also be included.
