first_imgThe Huffington Post:Young Americans have gotten a fair share of criticism in recent decades. College students in particular — and those leaving college to enter the work force — have been described as self-absorbed and entitled, grandiose in their sense of their own importance.

It’s unfair and perilous to characterize an entire generation, and indeed this narcissistic trend has been disputed by some. There is also a lively debate about what might instill a grandiose self-concept in the minds of the young. Have they been spoiled by indulgent, overprotective parents, who lavished their kids with unearned praise?Or perhaps it’s something else entirely, some uncontrollable social or economic force that’s shaping the minds of a generation.
