~In comparison to baby boomers and generation X, the current high school and college students display more extrinsic values and motivations rather than intrinsic. More likely to value money, image and fame over community.

~Studies are finding that people who tend to score higher on Narcissistic Personality Tests also have more Facebook activity.

~May not be to the rise of social media but instead to the rise of social networks at home. Parental coddling, and the so called ‘self esteem’ movement; adults instilling a healthy sense of self esteem through manners of praise. “Everyone’s a Winner Mentality”- empty praise and congratulatory remarks that are undeserving leave children with less than satisfactory levels of self confidence.

~Self absorbed societal tendencies

Narcissism in Social Media Today:
Do Now:
Why do you post on social media?
Do you consistently check back to see how many ‘likes’ you receive?
Do you feel that the more ‘likes’ you have in a period of time define your self worth?

Look at your own Instagram account:

How many “Selfies” do you have up right now?
Not a selfie
Arguments against "Generation Me"
Not every member possesses all traits.
Each generation has viewed the younger as being foolish, self-centered and averse to hard work.
Generation Me has a greater tendency to do charity work.
Has more long-term goals other than material prosperity.
excessive or erotic interest in one's self and ones physical appearance.
The Narcissistic Personality Inventory(NPI) divides narcissism into 7 components:

Ohio State University, 800 men aged 18-40 were asked to take a survey.
Tried to link those who posted, and edited selfies with narcissism.
Also scored high in anti-personality trait and psychopathy and are more prone to self-objectification
The men who did not edit their photos were linked with psychopathy rather than narcissism because it showed the impulsive behavior and desire to see themselves.
Self objectification is becoming a bigger problem with men as well as women.
Jesse Fox, the professor, wants to continue her studies to test her claim that the same results apply to women.
People argue changes in Narcissistic behaviors have to do with the ways people respond to questionnaires.
A more honest mentality would allow people to admit to being more selfish
The University of Georgia experiment found that the United States participants produced the highest NPI scores (an average of 15.3), followed by Europe (15), Canada (14.8), Asia (14.3), and the Middle East (13.9)
could be due to the fact that cultural perceptions of individualism vary across cultures.
Western cultures value the individual while eastern cultures tend to place more value on groups
