The tiny tip is : NO group of people is purely monolithic or completely homogeneous.
It takes all sorts to make this world, but different groups of people can have a few broad common qualities.
Just remember to consider other question requirements or key words to decide which sub-groups you want to discuss. Stay relevant, or ‘game over’ for you !
If the question is about YOUTH or YOUNG PEOPLE, you can consider:
– the educated or more privileged
– the poor or lacking in avenues for socio-economic mobility
– the politically aware or apathetic, free or repressed
– singles, married without children, young families, those trapped in the three-generation sandwich
COMMON QUALITIES OF THIS GROUP : They have dreams to fulfill. They want to exert their identities, since most have been under the charge of other institutions, like the family and schools. They want to make a niche for themselves.
If the question is about THE ELDERLY, you can consider:
– the able-bodied or the sick
– the self-reliant (financially secure) or the poor, uninsured, unsupported
– educated, or not
– the single unmarried senior citizen – a growing trend
– seniors living in societies with varied support systems such as government aid, favourable labour laws, non-government organisations etc.
COMMON QUALITIES OF THIS GROUP : They are looking for safety and care in all forms. The more established may look for legacies to leave behind.
If the question is about WORKERS, you can consider:
– the educated or unskilled
– the mobile transnational worker – a phenomenon of the modern times
– nature of work : those working from home, regularly commuting/traveling, self-employed, business owners, more menial or intellectual
– with family to support (type of family : three-tier, young children, teens etc)
– phase of work life : fresh out of school? mid-career? nearly retired?
COMMON QUALITIES OF THIS GROUP : They are building their future and preparing for the next stage of life. They are looking for a combination of stability to fulfil their responsibilities, and room for personal growth.
