Here we will discuss characteristics and traits of Alfred Kinsey's generation. Of course, Alfred may not share all of the characteristics of his generation, but he is greatly affected by the tone that is set by his generation.
The first topic focuses on the subconscious and emotional drive of this age group. In this section we will describe a deeply felt urge - and even compulsion - of Alfred's age group. This deeply felt drive comes to the surface very forcefully, thereby leaving considerable upheaval and change in its wake. The second topic concerns the dreams, fantasies and spiritual aspirations of Alfred's age group. The third and last topic describes what is new and different in his age group; it highlights areas in which Kinsey's age group tends to be innovative, inventive and unusual, as well as where it may be unstable and unreliable.
The characteristics described below may affect a group of people for anywhere from a few years to about 30 years. There are one or more different astrological factors described in each of the three sections below.
The Subconscious and Emotional Drive of Alfred Kinsey's Age Group
Alfred Kinsey is part of a 30-year group of people with a carefree attitude towards life. Their subconscious and emotional needs are not as great or as complex as those of other generations. They approach life in a more easygoing manner. They know how to have a good time and they do not take life as seriously as other generations do.
This is a curious and inquisitive bunch that loves puzzles and word games. Some members of Kinsey's generation will follow these interests in great depth, and make spectacular breakthroughs in the areas of languages, mathematics and logic.
Their breakthroughs also highlight the importance of educational skills and their benefits, and Kinsey's generation is highly motivated to improve educational standards and academic skills. A tremendous push is given to ensure literacy for all, foster adequate verbal and mathematical skills, and slow down the high school dropout rate. Needless to say, these are noble goals that all generations support, but this generation puts a much greater emphasis on these issues than other age groups do.
The generation following Alfred Kinsey's is far more emotional and personally sensitive than Kinsey's group. Consequently, many of them are oblivious to the emotional support and tender nurturing that these children (who are likely to be members of this next generation) require.
Kinsey's generation had to contend with tumultuous changes, social upheaval, and difficult times in the world at large. However this affected Alfred Kinsey personally. One way it has influenced Alfred's general age group is to cause distrust of revolutionary ideas or radical departures from whatever order has been created. In other words, because of enforced changes due to the circumstances in the world as Alfred Kinsey was maturing, many of his generation fear and resist change in their personal world and lives.
The Ideals and Illusions of Alfred Kinsey's Age Group
Alfred Kinsey is part of a 14-year group of people that have a very active imagination.

Alfred Kinsey's age group has a keen curiosity about psychic phenomena, astrology, and other metaphysical sciences. Alfred's generation also takes a rather intellectual, non-emotional attitude towards religion, and is quick to detect logical flaws in religious doctrines.
While Alfred Kinsey may be interested in and even prone to experiencing unusual, heightened states of consciousness, paranormal phenomena, and the like, he is also rather uneasy and confused by such. Ungrounded idealism or "fanciful notions" are rejected by his generation for the most part.
The entire generation to which Alfred Kinsey belongs has tremendous opportunities for spiritual rebirth and awakening. This will not be forced upon Kinsey or precipitated by unavoidable events, rather it comes from an inner yearning and a natural propensity to seek the depths.
