Almost everything anyone does could be linked to the encouragement of attention-seeking.

***I can tell they are REAAALLY struggling to grasp any valid point. The only evidence that I feel any of this supports is that these people are jealous that the newer generation is overpowering their generation. Just because we have modern equipment, and have been given a eduacation that in many ways has improved, does not make me (or anyone else) narcissistic ***

All that page said was "Being narcissistic is a bad thing....but it can be good."

Then it goes on to say how bad it is to be narcissistic without really making any point in the first place of how we are narcissistic.

The new report follows a study released by UCLA last month which found that nearly three-quarters of the freshmen it surveyed thought it was important to be "very well-off financially." That compared with 62.5 percent who said the same in 1980 and 42 percent in 1966.

hmmm... isn't 62.5 percent "nearly three-quarters" (75%)? The rate of increase is actually decreasing. As for the importance of being well-off financially, anyone with common-sense knows that pertains importance!
It said all these VERY vague statements like: Current technology fuels the increase in narcissism," Twenge said. "`By its very name, MySpace encourages attention-seeking, as does YouTube.`"
That is in no way a valid point. Almost everything anyo

How about worrying more about getting more people into college than worrying about the ones that are already in college if they're conceited or not

Another thought: the only people who care what people on I-Am-Bored think about this article....are the people posting the thoughts themselves. IF you do something better than surf the web then maybe someone worth taking seriously will take your opinion seriously, but perhaps not. I've been alive long enough, and have been both intelligent and stupid enough, and have paid my dues enough only to be forced to give it all away to spoileys.....to know that so very much of what people have been doing in the past 70 years is pure narcissism and bs. I can see where we went wrong but guess what, it can`t be fixed. Congratulations, chances are you don`t matter. If you want to matter then get above this sordid minstrel show and do something that matters. End of tirade.

There is a difference between " i'm special" and " i am the most important thing on the planet"

The blurring of the lines is the problem, not the " i am special"
