Communication is an integral part of human life. The choice of motive in communicating is believed to affect the satisfaction of their communication and relationships. The six motives for sharing include pleasure, compassion, inclusion, escape control and relaxation. As a generation whose number is more than half of Indonesia's population, Millennials have weaknesses in carrying out interpersonal communication. The poor interpersonal communication carried out by millennials has made their level of satisfaction in carrying out communication and relationships low. This study uses a quantitative approach, with the subject of this research is the millennial generation in the Jakarta area. The data were collected using the interpersonal communication motive scale, consisting of 27 items (Rubin et al., 1988) and the Communication Satisfaction Scale, which consists of 18 items.
