Richard Linklater's critically acclaimed film Boyhood (2014) is his latest paean to what sociologists call the Millennial generation. This presentation argues that the sociology of generations finds its psychological counterpart in typology, and that Millennials more precisely correspond to the INFP type, or what Jungian analyst John Giannini calls the sensitive soul. Film clips and director interviews illustrate that the sensitive soul is presently emerging out of the collective unconscious in compensation for an otherwise unhealthy and one-sided heroic orientation to life.
