Baby boomers expect that they can organize their retirement. A healthy, long post-professional phase and a relatively good material security contribute to this expectation. A particularly high level of education is responsible for the favorable financial situation. But even inheritances play a considerable role.
Three features characterize the baby boomers especially:
1. They´ve had to reinvent themselves several times in life, know no continuity, rather than breaks in their biography
2. They tend to atypical behavior considering typical role clichés of the traditional age generation.
3. Their self-definition is done through their own experiences, not mediated by models or worldviews.
The traditional age generation preffered:
• work ethic
• Respect authority
• sense of duty
• the classic family situation
The baby boomers have the desire:
• for changes
• to make new experiences
• try new products and
• for a new spirituality
• to not be guided by overcome Role- and family portraits
