For those in college or recently out, this should not come as such a surprise: Today’s college students think they’re very special. In a poll that has been administered to American college freshman since 1966, students are asked to rate their academic ability, drive to succeed, mathematical ability and self confidence as compared to their peers. This year’s freshmen apparently have reported the most egotistical self-evaluations in 46 years. This is also in spite of the fact that they are reporting less hours spent studying and reduced demonstrated competence in reading/writing as evidenced by test scores.
