I love this quote -
For those hiring members of Gen Y, Harvey suggests asking the interview question, "Do you feel you are generally superior to your coworkers/classmates/etc., and if so, why?" He says that "if the candidate answers yes to the first part but struggles with the 'why,' there may be an entitlement issue. This is because entitlement perceptions are often based on an unfounded sense of superiority and deservingness. They've been led to believe, perhaps through overzealous self-esteem building exercises in their youth, that they are somehow special but often lack any real justification for this belief."You mean a very cool tattoo doesn't make you special? Custom ear rings, what allow people to see light through your ears doesn't make you special? I have always felt that outworking everyone made me special, that has mostly worked.
How about you, are you special? Did you earn that, or are you just entitled?
