Millennials are Uncertain, not Entitled

I loved this read from the Huffington Post. ‘Millennials are Uncertain, Not Entitled”

“Stories about entitled, apathetic millennials just keep coming. A sense of entitlement is one of the diagnostic criterion for narcissistic personality disorder. Further criteria are a sense of superiority and grandiosity – other charges lobbed at millennials. By itself, researchers have linked ‘trait entitlement’, to feelings of frustration, unhappiness and disappointment with life, leading to a host of psychological and relationship problems.

But what I think employers and teachers are seeing and complaining about these days, is not an entire generation beset with a personality disorder. It’s simply a cohort of young people unsure of where they stand and what to expect.”
