STUDY SHOWS TODAY’S KIDS THINK THEY ARE ENTITLED TO EVERYTHING

Research  shows that large amounts of young people are developing an  entitlement  complex. A 2016 study from the University of Hampshire found  that  Millennials, who were born roughly between 1988 and 1994 and were   studied on issues of entitlement, scored 25 to 50 percent higher than   people aged 40 and older. This form of narcissism has some significant   consequences such as disappointment and a tendency to lash out.Examples  of Entitlement Tendencies:

1. You expect the same rules  that apply to others shouldn’t apply to  you. For example, other people  might need to start at the bottom and  work their way up but you  shouldn’t have to.

2. You feel massively put upon when other  people ask you for small  favors but expect that when you ask people for  favors it’s no big  effort.

3. You expect other people to be more interested in you than you’re interested in them.

4.  You disregard rules that are intended for everyone’s comfort. For   example, you ignore signs to please not put your feet on the chairs at   the movies.

5. You freeload. For example, you use bittorrent programs to download movies rather than paying for them.

6.  You inconvenience others without thinking. For example, you cancel   appointments or reservations repeatedly. Or, you make plans with  friends  and then bail on those plans

7. You think it’s okay to upset or offend other people

8.  You cheat in environments that are based on reciprocity. For example,   you ask loads of questions in your favorite internet forum, but you   don’t spend the same amount of time answering others’ questions

9. When working in groups, you think you should be the leader or get the most credit.
