It's bloody quantifiable enough in my world....two kids, 19 and 20. 

My son is the younger and living in his own apartment, full time job, credit card, vehicle loan, etc.  Doesn't expect anyone to give him anything (except maybe a little "help" from dad once in a while that he doesn't ask for). 

Now my daughter?  Totally different situation - living with her boyfriend, no job, no education past high school, no interest in finding a job or getting her license, and thinks the world should pay her for her efforts.  Big into "social causes" whether they affect her or not (or whether she even understands them or not!)  I remember her getting all worked up because my son said he couldn't give a damn one way or the other if someone is gay - she started going off how "that's illegal!!!"  I had to set her straight on "the law".  Hate to say it, but my girl turned out to be the epitome of a "snowflake" as did a whole pile of the people she went to high school with.

Parents and teachers jointly created these types of people.

The boy is proud of what he has because he earned it.  The girl has no respect for anything really and I think it's because things were just given to her without any effort on her part.  This would be the very definition of "entitlement culture".
These are called personal anecdotes that are embedded in your biased opinions on the situation. This is not empirical quantification.
