Follow up: Delusional and Narcissistic?


I wanted to post a follow up on this topic of whether American university students are increasingly delusional and narcissistic. The BBC Magazinepublished a nice article on the topic last week. The following graph is informative. I don’t know much about four of the five traits but so far as “Writing Ability” goes, writing is one of my students’ shortcomings. I don’t know why. Perhaps they don’t take writing classes or perhaps they never learn their grammar. But, the writing could use a lot of improvement.

About Mike
A resident of the “30 square miles surrounded by reality,” I spend most of my time teaching economics and statistics to undergraduate students. I enjoy, naturally, economics and business, but also science (I was once an astronomical observatory assistant), politics, photography, food, travel and sports. Madison has grown quite a bit since 1978 when Governor Lee Dreyfus made that remark. According to Wikipedia, Madison is 67.3 square miles of land and 16 square miles of water.
