An interesting read from Dr. Keith Ablow. Ablow is “an American psychiatrist, expert witness, New York Times best-selling author of fiction and nonfiction, assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Tufts Medical School and television personality who hosted a national, daily syndicated talk show.”
He also writes for Fox News.
A new analysis of the American Freshman Survey, which has accumulated data for the past 47 years from 9 million young adults, reveals that college students are more likely than ever to call themselves gifted and driven to succeed, even though their test scores and time spent studying are decreasing.
Psychologist Jean Twenge, the lead author of the analysis, is also the author of a study showing that the tendency toward narcissism in students is up 30 percent in the last thirty-odd years.
This data is not unexpected.
