Young People Today More Stressed Out, High-Strung

Take a look at the differences in opportunities for a college grad a generation ago from today and you'll know why they're stressed. Competition for jobs. Unaffordable housing. Sky-high expectations from parents and of themselves.

Instead of labeling these kids as narcissistic, perhaps it would be good to look at why students have to be so extremely self-assured and confident to get in the door to the job they want - or have the ambition to be an entrepreneur. I'd be curious to see the research that discusses the new skill set needed to "make it" and would bet self-confidence is on that list.
