Absurdly Driven looks at the world of business with a skeptical eye and a firmly rooted tongue in cheek.

Millennials have minds of their own.

They certainly think they do.

And why shouldn't they?

The world's a mess -- I hope Donald Trump hasn't trademarked that phrase yet -- and yesterday's life rules are the mere stuff of bad history books.

Or 80s rock songs that millennials are just catching up with.

Surely, though, when asked who their roles models are, millennials will still point to their parents, won't they?

After all, these parents coddled them, gave them a stress-free life and made them understand that they're the most important people on the planet.

For all this, would a little respect go amiss?

It would.

I am moved and numbed by a new piece of research that wondered about the future of work.

Conducted by GoDaddy and Morar Consulting, the researchers asked 7,291 professionals around the world to speak with their hearts.

This would be a rare thing for many professionals, as so many prefer to speak with their venal minds.

More than a third of these professionals said they would soon be starting a business.

But it's millennials we care about most.

We've taught them well and now we're letting them lead the way.

We've shown them all the beauty they possess inside.

We've given them a sense of pride to make it all easier.

And still they don't see their parents as their biggest role models?

Well, 30 percent of them did.

This was, however, a relatively paltry number when compared to the 40 percent who declared their undying admiration for someone else.

Was it for a dynamic leader of men, an apogee of all that is caring, good and emotively human in the world?

I submit that the answer to this is: Not quite.

As NBC reports, 40 percent of these millennials chose Mark Zuckerberg as the man they look up to most.

Yes, the Facebook CEO, who moves audiences to raptures with his magnanimous eyes, witty turns of phrase and elegant openness to all, is the one human being whom millennials admire above all others.

I am concerned.

But you can probably tell that already.

Zuckerberg has, indeed, built a very powerful company.

But has he really done it with insight, ingenuity and a feel for the innards of human beings?

Or was he in the right place, at the right time and watched potential rivals stumble like drunks at dawn while he made fewer mistakes and copied anything he saw others do that was successful (and sometimes not very well)?

Is he someone who has brought the world together in a spirit of glorious openness?

Or is he someone who tried to talk the Indian government into letting him give its people free access to the internet, as long as Facebook could heavily influence which sites they got for free?

What, indeed, is Zuckerberg a role model for? For making oodles of money while very young? Certainly. For posting nice pictures of his dog and baby? Of course.

For not cursing at strangers? More surely.

But is he a role model for how companies should be run in the future and for how social responsibility can make everyone a happier human?

Or he is a role model for running a company that behaves like a media company when it suits it and denies it's a media company when it doesn't suit it?

Is he a role model for creating a company that sometimes looks beyond the dollar to the greater good?

Or a role model for doing exactly as so many of his forefathers did and making as much money for his company as humanly possible?

Look, I don't know.

I'm not a millennial, am I?

All I do know -- if I choose to believe this survey, that is -- is that 50 percent of millennials say they'll soon be setting up their own businesses.

Reminder: their biggest role model is Mark Zuckerberg.

These will all, therefore, be extremely human-focused, progressive, fun businesses indeed.

Unless, of course, they're the Uber or Facebook of (insert a random service here).
