who are also known as the Me Generation who then produced the Me Me Me Generation whose selfishness technology has only exacerbated Whereas in the 1950s families displayed a wedding photo a school photo and maybe a military photo in their homes the average middle-class American family today walks amid 85 pictures of themselves and their pets Millennials have come of age in the era of the quantified self recording their daily steps on FitBit their whereabouts every hour of every day on PlaceMe and their genetic data on 23 and Me They have less civic engagement and lower political participation than any previous group This is a generation that would have made Walt Whitman wonder if maybe they should try singing a song of someone elseThey got this way partly because in the 1970s people wanted to improve kids’ chances of success by instilling self-esteem It turns out that self-esteem is great for getting a job or hooking up at a bar but not so great for keeping a job or a relationship "It was an honest mistake" says Roy Baumeister a psychology professor at Florida State University and the editor of Self-Esteem: The Puzzle of Low Self-Regard "The early findings showed that indeed kids with high self-esteem did better in school and were less likely to be in various kinds of trouble It’s just that we’ve learned later that self-esteem is a result not a cause" The problem is that when people try to boost self-esteem they accidentally boost narcissism instead "Just tell your kids you love them It’s a better message" says Jean Twenge a psychology professor at San Diego State University who wrote Generation Me and The Narcissism Epidemic "When they’re little it seems cute to tell them they’re special or a princess or a rock star or whatever their T-shirt says When they’re 14 it’s no longer cute" All that self-esteem leads them to be disappointed when the world refuses to affirm how great they know they are "This generation has the highest likelihood of having unmet expectations with respect to their careers and the lowest levels of satisfaction with their careers at the stage that they’re at" says Sean Lyons co-editor of Managing the New Workforce: International Perspectives on the Millennial Generation "It is sort of a crisis of unmet expectations"(Income Inequality: It’s Not Just for Older People Anymore)What millennials are most famous for besides narcissism is its effect: entitlement If you want to sell seminars to middle managers make them about how to deal with young employees who e-mail the CEO directly and beg off projects they find boring English teacher David McCullough Jr’s address last year to Wellesley High School’s graduating class a 12-minute reality check titled "You Are Not Special" has nearly 2 million hits on YouTube "Climb the mountain so you can see the world not so the world can see you" McCullough told the graduates He says nearly all the response to the video has been positive especially from millennials themselves; the video has 57 likes for every dislikeThough they’re cocky about their place in the world millennials are also stunted having prolonged a life stage between teenager and adult that this magazine once called twixters and will now use once again in an attempt to get that term to catch on The idea of the teenager started in the 1920s; in 1910 only a tiny percentage of kids went to high school so most people’s social interactions were with adults in their family or in the workplace Now that cell phones allow kids to socialize at every hour–they send and receive an average of 88 texts a day according to Pew–they’re living under the constant influence of their friends "Peer pressure is anti-intellectual It is anti-historical It is anti-eloquence" says Mark Bauerlein an English professor at Emory who wrote The Dumbest Generation: How the Digital Age Stupefies Young Americans and Jeopardizes Our Future (Or Don’t Trust Anyone Under 30) "Never before in history have people been able to grow up and reach age 23 so dominated by peers To develop intellectually you’ve got to relate to older people older things: 17-year-olds never grow up if they’re just hanging around other 17-year-olds" Of all the objections to Obamacare not a lot of people argued against parents’ need to cover their kids’ health insurance until they’re 26(MORE: I’m Not on Facebook

People Begin to LeaveMillennials are interacting all day but almost entirely through a screen You’ve seen them at bars sitting next to one another and texting They might look calm but they’re deeply anxious about missing out on something better Seventy percent of them check their phones every hour and many experience phantom pocket-vibration syndrome "They’re doing a behavior to reduce their anxiety" says Larry Rosen a psychology professor at California State University at Dominguez Hills and the author of iDisorder That constant search for a hit of dopamine ("Someone liked my status update") reduces creativity From 1966 when the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking were first administered through the mid-1980s creativity scores in children increased Then they dropped falling sharply in 1998 Scores on tests of empathy similarly fell sharply starting in 2000 likely because of both a lack of face-to-face time and higher degrees of narcissism Not only do millennials lack the kind of empathy that allows them to feel concerned for others but they also have trouble even intellectually understanding others’ points of viewWhat they do understand is how to turn themselves into brands with "friend" and "follower" tallies that serve as sales figures As with most sales positivity and confidence work best "People are inflating themselves like balloons on Facebook" says W Keith Campbell a psychology professor at the University of Georgia who has written three books about generational increases in narcissism (including When You Love a Man Who Loves Himself) When everyone is telling you about their vacations parties and promotions you start to embellish your own life to keep up If you do this well enough on Instagram YouTube and Twitter you can become a microcelebrityMillennials grew up watching reality-TV shows most of which are basically documentaries about narcissists Now they have trained themselves to be reality-TV-ready "Most people never define who they are as a personality type until their 30s So for people to be defining who they are at the age of 14 is almost a huge evolutionary jump" says casting director Doron Ofir who auditioned participants for Jersey Shore Millionaire Matchmaker A Shot at Love and RuPaul’s Drag Race among other shows "Do you follow me on Twitter" he asks at the end of the interview "Oh you should I’m fun I hope that one day they provide an Emmy for casting of reality shows–because you know I’d assume I’m a shoo-in I would like that gold statue And then I will take a photo of it and then I will Instagram it" Ofir is 41 but he has clearly spent a lot of time around millennialsI have gone just about as far as I can in an article without talking about myself So first yes I’m aware that I started this piece–in which I complain about millennials’ narcissism–with the word I I know that this magazine which for decades did not print bylines started putting authors’ names on the cover regularly in 2004 and that one of the first names was mine As I mocked reality shows in the previous paragraph I kept thinking about the fact that I got to the final round for 1995’s Real World: London I know my number of Twitter followers far better than the tally on my car’s odometer; although Facebook has a strictly enforced limit of 5000 friends I somehow have 5079 It was impossible not to remember the whole time I was accusing millennials of being lazy that I was supposed to finish this article nearly a year ago(MORE: Young Americans Won’t Pay for TV Will They Ever)I moved home for the first six months after college When I got hired at Time my co-workers hated me for cozying up to the editor of the magazine I talk to one of my parents every other day and depend on my dad for financial advice It’s highly possible that I’m a particularly lame 41-year-old but still none of these traits are new to millennials; they’ve been around at least since the Reformation when Martin Luther told Christians they didn’t need the church to talk to God and became more pronounced at the end of the 18th century in the Romantic period when artists stopped using their work to celebrate God and started using it to express themselves In 1979 Christopher Lasch wrote in The Culture of Narcissism "The media give substance to and thus intensify narcissistic dreams of fame and glory encourage common people to identify themselves with the stars and to hate the ‘herd’ and make it more and more difficult for them to accept the banality of everyday existence" I checked my e-mail three times during that sentenceSo while the entire first half of this article is absolutely true (I had data) millennials’ self-involvement is more a continuation of a trend than a revolutionary break from previous generations They’re not a new species; they’ve just mutated to adapt to their environmentFor example millennials’ perceived entitlement isn’t a result of overprotection but an adaptation to a world of abundance "For almost all of human history almost everyone was a small-scale farmer And then people were farmers and factory workers Nobody gets very much fulfillment from either of those things" says Jeffrey Arnett a psychology professor at Clark University who invented the phrase emerging adulthood which people foolishly use instead of the catchy twixters Twixters put off life choices because they can choose from a huge array of career options some of which like jobs in social media didn’t exist 10 years ago What idiot would try to work her way up at a company when she’s going to have an average of seven jobs before age 26 Because of online dating Facebook circles and the ability to connect with people internationally they no longer have to marry someone from their high school class

Pacific and one in the Atlantic theater One became a pilot; one became a doctor When you grow up during the Great Depression and fight off the Nazis you want safety and stability" says Tucker Max 37 who set an example for millennials when instead of using his Duke law degree to practice law he took his blog rants about his drunken lecherous adventures and turned them into a mega-best-selling book I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell that he got an independent publisher to print "Everyone told you that everyone above you had to s— on you before you got to s— on people below you And millennials didn’t want to do that"In fact a lot of what counts as typical millennial behavior is how rich kids have always behaved The Internet has democratized opportunity for many young people giving them access and information that once belonged mostly to the wealthy When I was growing up in the 1980s I thought I would be a lawyer since that was the best option I knew about for people who sucked at math in my middle-class suburb but I saw a lot more options once I got to Stanford "Previously if you wanted to be a writer but didn’t know anyone who is in publishing it was just Well I won’t write But now it’s Wait I know someone who knows someone" says Jane Buckingham who studies workplace changes as founder of Trendera a consumer-insights firm "I hear story after story of people high up in an organization saying ‘Well this person just e-mailed me and asked me for an hour of my time and for whatever reason I gave it to them’ So the great thing is that they do feel entitled to all of this so they’ll be more innovative and more willing to try new things and they’ll do all this cool stuff"Because millennials don’t respect authority they also don’t resent it That’s why they’re the first teens who aren’t rebelling They’re not even sullen "I grew up watching Peanuts where you didn’t even see the parents They were that ‘Wah-wah’ voice And MTV was always a parent-free zone" says MTV president Stephen Friedman 43 who now includes parents in nearly all the channel’s reality shows "One of our research studies early on said that a lot of this audience outsources their superego to their parents The most simple decision of should I do this or should I do that–our audience will check in with their parents" A 2012 Google Chrome ad shows a college student video-chatting all the details of her life to her dad "I am very used to seeing things where the cliché is the parent doesn’t understand Most of my friends their parents are on social and they’re following them or sharing stuff with them" says Jessica Brillhart a filmmaker at Google’s Creative Lab who worked on the commercial It’s hard to hate your parents when they also listen to rap and watch Jon StewartIn fact many parents of millennials would proudly call their child-rearing style peer-enting "I negotiate daily with my son who is 13 Maybe all that coddling has paid off in these parent-child relationships" says Jon Murray who created The Real World and other reality shows including Keeping Up With the Kardashians He says that seeing regular people celebrated on TV gives millennials confidence: "They’re going after what they want It can be a little irritating that they want to be on the next rung so quickly Maybe I’m partly responsible for it I like this generation so I have no issues with that"Kim Kardashian who represents to nonmillennials all that is wrong with her generation readily admits that she has no particular talent But she also knows why she appeals to her peers "They like that I share a lot of myself and that I’ve always been honest about the way I live my life" she says "They want relationships with businesses and celebrities Gen X was kept at arm’s length from businesses and celebrity" When you’re no longer cowed by power you are going to like what a friend tells you about far more than what an ad campaign does even if that friend is a celebrity trying to make money and that friendship is just a reply to one tweetWhile every millennial might seem like an oversharing Kardashian posting vacation photos on Facebook is actually less obnoxious than 1960s couples’ trapping friends in their houses to watch their terrible vacation slide shows "Can you imagine if the boomers had YouTube how narcissistic they would’ve seemed" asks Scott Hess senior vice president of human intelligence for SparkSMG whose TedX speech "Millennials: Who They Are and Why We Hate Them" advised companies on marketing to youth "Can you imagine how many frickin’ Instagrams of people playing in the mud during Woodstock we would’ve seen I think in many ways you’re blaming millennials for the technology that happens to exist right now" Yes they check their phones during class but think about how long you can stand in line without looking at your phone Now imagine being used to that technology your whole life and having to sit through algebraRelatedExerciseThese Are the Cities Where People
