Generation Y är självupptagna jävlar

Folk blir allt mer självupptagna

We found that… college students in the 2000s were significantly more narcissistic than Gen Xers and Baby Boomers in the 1970s, ‘80s, and ’90s. The Boomers, a generation famous for being self-absorbed, were outdone by their children. By 2006, two-thirds of college students scored above the scale’s original 1979-85 sample average, a 30% increase in only two decades… The upswing in narcissism appears to be accelerating: the increase between 2000 and 2006 was especially steep.

Frågan är vad man får för resultat när man börjar mäta på dem som vuxit upp med Facebook och Twitter.
