Generation Me?   posted by ben g @ 11/10/2008 07:23:00 PM

In a recent post, Agnostic dismissed Jean Twenge's thesis that narcissism has increased over the last couple of decades. Twenge has been on my reading list for a while, so this intrigued me. Not feeling knowledgeable enough to play devil's advocate against agnostic, I sent Professor Twenge an email inviting her to join the thread. She does a pretty good job of defending her thesis against agnostic's criticisms, in my opinion. I invite anyone who's interested to check out the thread, read the studies, and share their own two cents.
