"Accompanying these monumental tasks is egocentricity. The acute self-consciousness of adolescence incites increased levels of narcissism and grandiose levels of paranoia."

I have certainly seen this in adolescents but you see the same sort of thing online with the anonymous baby Boomer, or any generation-types, who are so angry about everything. Not saying this observation isn't valid, just that the addition of widespread social media has completely complicated Jung's non-tech view of society, role models, etc.
