    We are raising a generation of deluded narcissists



    "A new analysis of the American Freshman Survey, which has accumulated data for the past 47 years from 9 million young adults, reveals that college students are more likely than ever to call themselves gifted and driven to succeed, even though their test scores and time spent studying are decreasing."

    "Psychologist Jean Twenge, the lead author of the analysis, is also the author of a study showing that the tendency toward narcissism in students is up 30 percent in the last thirty-odd years."


    "This data is not unexpected. I have been writing a great deal over the past few years about the toxic psychological impact of media and technology on children, adolescents and young adults, particularly as it regards turning them into faux celebrities—the equivalent of lead actors in their own fictionalized life stories."

    Then we sit around diddling, wondering why the culture is becoming so sadistic, the people so incompetent, and kill others or themselves.

    How old are you, Beretta? Are you a member of the generation discussed in the article? We have a narcissistic culture in general, so I'm not sure it's generational.
