6 Signs You Have An Entitlement Complex
By tanuadmin, 02/13/2016
You make unrealistic demands.
Entitled people want the moon, they want it in a specific color, they wanted it 10 minutes ago, and they know you know they wanted it 10 minutes ago. If you make unrealistic demands of people, chances are you have a bit of an entitlement complex going on.
You've been called a bully.
Bully, ruthless, egotistical - have people you loved ever called you these names? It's probably true if so. They're hallmark signs of people who feel entitled.
You don't feel sorry for others.
Not enough money? Should have worked harder. Now feeling well? Tough luck. Can't feed your family? Stop being so poor. Why should my tax dollars have to pay for you? Is this ever your line of thinking? It sounds like you have a sense of entitlement.
You expect others to feel sorry for you.
Not enough money? Please loan me some money! Not feeling well? Come on, give me the day off. Having trouble feeding your family? I've earned the help! You never feel sorry for anyone else but you demand all sorts of help when you're down on your luck.
You have trouble admitting mistakes.
People with entitled tendencies tend to push blame off onto everyone else for everything, even things they know full well they themselves did wrong. It's an ugly personality trait.
You are easily offended.
I'll leave this section to Stephen Fry:
“It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so f*cking what."
