The very same.

In the process of trying to put together a piece about my generation, I kept running across how cyclical the world can be. I discovered that pretty much every generation got called the Me Generation in their youth. One article I read pointed out that maybe it’s not that the generation is narcissistic, it’s that young people tend to be narcissists and so as we age, we perceive them as such, seeing those behind us as uniquely selfish when we ourselves were the very same when we were their age.
