Jean Twinge psychologist calculated narcissism in millennial. According to her research millennial put forward that the origin of their narcissism is their societal or cultural changes particularly by extended focus on individualism. Jean twinge’s researches emanate on Narcissistic Personality Inventory. She and her colleagues halted by, narcissism were found more in two-third of Millennial.
In 2013 Twinge ceased, the evidence strongly shore up the idea that individuals who born between 1985-1995 (young generation) is more ‘generation me’ beside ‘generation we’. Christian Jarred (2017) enlightened, low self-confidence is because of mental and psychological problems. Jaffrey Arnett disagreed with Jean Twinge and believed that young generation are vaguely entitled. Also, he questioned that either Twinge’s NPI estimated narcissism or not. He trusted that ‘millennial are unprecedented and philanthropic, they work for ameliorate the world’.
Along with his teammates he believed that millennial are slighter narcissist. Brent Robert and his co-workers studied narcissism in different separate zones. They did not only outlook the narcissism trait directly but also saw other related traits like leadership quality, egotism and appropriation. They approached that heterogeneous generations elucidate the statement differently. Concluding of Brent Robert and collaborators, ‘the Millennial are moderately narcissistic than the other’s’. The difficulty that was emerging and view by Brooke lea Foster (2014) is the elucidation of the item in NPI.
For instance the item ‘I like assertive’ or ‘I wish I were more assertive’ ascertain narcissism, self-worthiness, or directorship quality. Robert and his fellow workers trusted that definition of items in NPI becomes different across the time. From this shift in signification of items they came to end that narcissism is slowly decreased from 1990s to 2010s. Personality expert Brent Roberts along with his colleagues, by several cohorts studies on three American Universities in three different eras; 1990s, 2000s and early 2000s.
Brent with his colleagues sliced the findings and disclosed that narcissism has been contracted or lessen among young people since 90s. Which shows that narcissism was found excessively in 80s and start 90s. Joshua Grubbs at case Western Reserve University expressed, Millennial himself and old generation accorded that narcissism were found higher in them (Millennials) as juxtapose to other generations.
Grubbs measured narcissistic behavior in Millennial over social media. He vocalized them to choose between the emoji and cartoon faces which best ensembles their feelings. Grubbs concluded that people who were high narcissistic must choose happy emoji and less narcissistic people choose sad emoji. Grubbs have a confident over that still millennial show more aggression, frustration and sadness as contrasted to other’s. Few researchers stated, narcissism found increase in amount among Millennials than other generation because of this Grubbs accepted ‘narcissistic’ label have an effect on the attitude , behavior, emotions along the mental well-being of millennial generation.
Neil Petersen (2017) declared that narcissism exist in a small amount amid Millennials, he further conversed that in one study researchers foregathered data from various age groups and finalized ‘narcissism were found less in Millennials than other generations’. In last they stated that standard upgrading in narcissism is reduced over time. Coyle (2012) assumes that when people experience stress or tightness because of physical, spiritual and psychological changes than they gain autonomy from parents. Bland et al. (2012) did research on undergraduates and asked them about their stress. The students delineated that the most stressful events of their life are their school, parental presumptions and change in standard of life.
From this study Bland and his colleagues said that stressful situation some time cause mental problem in people and leads them toward less resiliency but they (Millennials) also have the ability to cope with stress full events. Brook Anderson (2015) said that millennial vary in characteristics from other generations in certain aspects like in communication with other peoples, in decision making. According to Anderson recent studies reveals that millennial manifest more resiliency in cultural and socioeconomic changes. Wood concluded that Millennials are more optimistic, they had a good attitude toward friends and colleagues that make them resilient. Millennials work hard, also they care about their work.
Millennial have experienced difficult time, unemployment, low income level but except all these difficulties they live their life happily. This means that they have the ability to handle all difficult situations in preferable and positive way which revealed the resilience. Study conducted by Ben Pauling revealed, there is a greater deviation among Millennial and I Gen, it’s because the flow of social media and technology in viability of those who born after 2000s.
Pauling observed that entire generation Z are autocratic and opposed to in-person interactions (Revelant, 2016). A recent study conducted by Dr. A.P.
Sing and Jianguanglung Dangmei in 2016, from which they came to end that Generation Z incline of being snippy, dearth of progressiveness and instant minded than the rest of generations due to highly dependency on technology they have procure attention deficit disorder and low attention span, self-directed, acquisitive, individualistic, materialistic, entitled and self-directed generation. In 2014 Jean Twenge conducted a study by using Narcissistic Personality Inventory which reveals that youth (18, 19 years) are highly narcissistic than teens of previous cohort groups or generations (Riseman 2017). By conducted interviews with youngsters and paper’s polling Noreena Hertz concluded that Generation Z are pessimistic that something good will be happen in their future life. 79% of them are fret about how to get their jobs while 72% distressed about debt and have extremely flurried and deeply distrustful towards the government (Stillman). According to Emile Anatole (2013) Millennials are optimistic while Generation Z are realistic.
They comprehend how terrifying the world can be, having grown after the 9/11 which was the time of great recession and amid innumerable reports of school violence. I Geneneration also have discern the direct out-turn of economy and are highly aware of troubling time. All these pitch-black events will indubitably make them security minded and highly cautious, and also persuade them to enhance the world. Their nurturing has made them realistic and resilient. Instead of battering from snags they have capability of facing difficult situations and able to understand and confront that difficult times.
In spite of terrible time they have faced, 6% only in them are frighten about their futures. Generation Z have grown up in focussed social evolution and major upheavals which widen and more clear their knowledge regarding to multiple of phenomena’s also they are inclusionary aware, intrigued and offering advices or suggestion, become more analytic and are able to face uncertain, unresolved situation and how to respond in stressful circumstances.2.1 Objectives of the study?

Every age group have faced some hard times and traumas in their lives, some of them considered as unable to cope while others learned a lesson and learn the ability to directed themselves in a troubled situation. The extent of positive way of thinking towards adverse condition are increased gradually along with generations, previous one’s are grown up in a healthy environment but today’s generation which are born in 2000s faced more troubled time, which make them strong and able them that how to faced antipathetic situation and how to cope with that. Because of positive attitudes the strenght of narcissism which were exist higher in former generations (considered themselves as a centre of attention and attraction) were slightly tend to decreased in today’s generation. Accompanying individual’s own ability ‘environment will also matter in structuring personality, beliefs and attitudes’. If individual’s live in collectivist society most probably there exist the concept of ”we” than ”me” in contrast to those grown in individualistic fraternity.
The purpose of conducting this study is to discern the interconnection between resiliency and narcissism with three different age groups additionally its effects on one another.
