Psychologists say more and more Millennials are entitled

The psychological trend comes from the belief that you are superior to others and are more deserving of certain things.

Research has discovered that large amounts of young people are developing an entitlement complex.

This form of narcissism has some significant consequences such as disappointment and a tendency to lash out.

Psychology Today reports that some examples of entitlement range from the disregard of rules, freeloading, causing inconveniences and like to assume the role of leader when working in groups.

So called millennials, who were born roughly between 1988 and 1994, tend to have this characteristic as a 2016 study found.

The University of Hampshire found that youngsters who were studied on issues of entitlement scored 25 per cent higher than people aged 40 to 60 and 50 per cent higher than those over that age bracket.

... "At extreme levels, entitlement is a toxic narcissistic trait, repeatedly exposing people to the risk of feeling frustrated, unhappy and disappointed with life.

Often times, life, health, ageing and the social world don’t treat us as well as we’d like.

Confronting these limitations is especially threatening to an entitled person because it violates their worldview of self-superiority.

When people think that they should have everything they want — often for nothing — it comes at the cost of relationships with others and, ultimately, their own happiness."

Boomfucks didn't raise them. The TV did while the parents smoked dope in the garage and fucked their neighbors' spouse's and pets.

Normally, problems like this one would be resolved by mandatory conscription of some sort. That isn't a realistic possibility due to our present politics so I'm thinking we're going to have a wild ass son of a bitch deep recession to break their backs and for the most part get rid of this. We live in Danville (affluent SF Bay Area suburb) and several retired CIOs I've met all say the same thing, that the one chink in these kids' armor is having come of age during a period of money printing and never having seen or even thought of a recession. We met a thirtyish young lady this week who is a sales rep for a software company and when I asked her "the question", her response was the same as all the others...a recession, what's that?

We're gonna have a bad one. We are due. Real estate on the coasts has gotten completely out of line. It's time.
