File This In The “Duh” Department
Shocking results from a new study:
Today’s college students are more narcissistic and self-centered than their predecessors, according to a comprehensive new study by five psychologists who worry that the trend could be harmful to personal relationships and American society.
Wow. Up next: According to a new study bloggers are more narcissistic and self-centered than non-bloggers.
Anyway, it looks like t.v. can teach kids valuable lessons. Or the movies can anyway.
The solution offered by the study’s authors:
“We need to stop endlessly repeating ‘You’re special’ and having children repeat that back,” said the study’s lead author, Professor Jean Twenge of San Diego State University. “Kids are self-centered enough already.”
My favorite line in The Incredibles:
Helen: Everyone’s special, Dash.
Dash: [muttering] Which is another way of saying no one is.
