Default Generation Me: Increase in Nacisssism

The July/August issue of The Atlantic cites a new study claiming that today's children are far more self-centered than preceding generations. The researchers argue that this growing group of narcissists will have trouble forming meaningful relationships, tend to be materialistic, and are prone to higher levels of infidelity, substance abuse, and violence.

The university researchers are confirming what Adler stated seventy years ago about pampered and neglected children.

Default Re: Generation Me: Increase in Nacisssism

Thank you for bringing this to the forum. I remember when "self-esteem" meant the way that we "esteem", or estimate ourselves. (Not the way that we make false claims of superiority over others) True estimation requires that we estimate ourselves and others with accuracy, and with mutual and self-respect. True estimation leads to "significance", and away from the mistakes of over-superiority or inferiority.
