A study has found that millennials are developing an entitlement complex.
Millennials are most likely to feel superior to others and that kind of narcissism can lead to bad behavior- from the disregard of rules, freeloading, causing inconveniences and like to assume the role of leader when working in groups.
The study reported that “at extreme levels, entitlement is a toxic narcissistic trait, repeatedly exposing people to the risk of feeling frustrated, unhappy and disappointed with life.”
XYZ University CEO Sarah Sladek said Baby Boomers and Gen-Xers are the ones to blame. While they were raised to be self-sufficient and independent things, they didn't raise their kids like that.
“We saw parenting shift from that hands-off parenting model to extreme hands on, or helicopter parenting,” said Sladek.
Sladek said Baby Boomers and Gen-Xers raised their kids to have a voice and interact with adults. Now, they expect that in the workplace.
“And, they’re saying I really want this great relationship with whomever I’m working with or for; and I want to feel positive and appreciated and respected. And, I want to feel happy,” said Sladek.
Sladek said when that doesn't happen, they feel a void and disengaged.
She added millennials are the most protected, supervised, provided for generation in history.
