Narcissism

A couple quotes from The Narcissism Epidemic:

“‘I am an important person.’ Only 12% of teens agreed with this statement in the 1950s, but by the late ’80s more than 80% of girls and 77% of boys said they were important.”

“In a recent study, 39% of American eighth-graders were confident in their math skills, compared to only 6% of Korean eighth-graders. The Koreans, however, far exceeded the U.S. students’ actual performance on math tests.”
