Dr Keith Ablow: “We are raising a generation of deluded narcissists.”

 

Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.comFrom FoxNews.com:

A new analysis of the American Freshman Survey, which has accumulated data for the past 47 years from 9 million young adults, reveals that college students are more likely than ever to call themselves gifted and driven to succeed, even though their test scores and time spent studying are decreasing.

Psychologist Jean Twenge, the lead author of the analysis, is also the author of a study showing that the tendency toward narcissism in students is up 30 percent in the last thirty-odd years.

This data is not unexpected.  I have been writing a great deal over the past few years about the toxic psychological impact of media and technology on children, adolescents and young adults, particularly as it regards turning them into faux celebrities—the equivalent of lead actors in their own fictionalized life stories.

Please read the rest of the story here.

With the nation, now, led by the Grandest Narcissist of them all.

So grand, in fact, that by the sheerest dint of his own Imperial Hand he plans to suspend your very Constitutional rights.  The media lapdogs and electorate will roll over to have their collective bellies further rubbed, giving up their freedoms for a dog biscuit.

Now: don’t you feel better?

Because, after all, if you’re a Demorat or a Leftist, it’s not about facts — it’s all about feelings.

    • T-ball, spelling doesn’t count, awards for merely showing up, a membership card in the Religious Left, and instant insertion into a six-figure first job.

  1. Have you ever fully considered that *OATH* that so many of us took? To defend against ALL enemies, foreign and domestic? That oath?

    Has it occurred to you that the biggest enemy we face IS a domestic enemy?

    At least HALF of this nation has become DRUNK on the Kool-Aid, and IF this nation ever falls into an *American Spring* type of violence, the enemies that will have to be eradicated, I mean completely wiped out will be those DOMESTIC enemies.

    Otherwise, there is no point in fighting. If this Progressive Liberal SCUM isn’t removed completely, they will return, just like roaches…

  2. My late father grew up hard and rough in the Great Depression. He and his brothers shared a dugout in a hillside as a bedroom. The family survived one winter on horse meat and beans.

    My father was a great believer in the “Belly Flapping Principal” as a change motivator.
    If our economy collapses, these deluded narcissists may well have that experience. They won’t like it!

  3. It’s called the “entitlement mentality.” Something my boys will never have. They are disciplined and not spoiled. They earn their allowance, etc.

    Parents need to stop babying their kids.
