I was born in the 70's which means that my personality was really molded by the 80's.
I'm not going to say, I miss the 80's or things were great. Frankly, I don't remember much of it, except the whole playing with my Transformers, GI JOEs and Voltron toys.
But, it definitely wasn't all fun and games. The 80's was still the time during the cold war, there were problems in Africa and the middle east. Peoples mentality towards money and the superficial were blatantly apparent. Basically, do whatever it takes to get it. So if you were take only these influences into consideration, personify them all together, you could get some dung hole kind of person, who's pretty untrusting, suspicious and greedy.
Luckily, that's not me.
I'm truly a result from all things geek. With movies like TRON, Star Trek, and Blade Runner... mix that with TV Shows like the A-Team, Knight Rider, Growing Pains, Facts of Life... throw in the ATARI 2600, Magnavox and the Commodore VIC20 ... those greedy characteristic listed earlier had no chance against the GEEK influences I was exposed to.
