Teenagers' self esteem is too high
A new study has found that teenagers have way too much self esteem.
In short, teenagers think they're great.
Researchers believe that the decades of efforts to boost self-esteem may have created unrealistic expectations in today's youth, and their inflated self-esteem may lead to a sense of entitlement: "I'm great, so I deserve great things."
Despite the popular beliefs, the vast majority of teens are quite satisfied with their bodies, appearance, intelligence, and capabilities. Efforts to instill self-esteem may have done their job too well.
Who'd of thought, teenagers having a sense of entitlement, feeling like the world should revolve around them. I'm sure you're as shocked as I am about that as I've never met a self centered teenager with a huge sense of entitlement who thinks that the world revolves around them.
