Children born under China's one-child policy, which limits most urban families to a single child, are less trusting, more risk-averse and more pessimistic than children born before the policy went into action, a new study finds.
The research in some ways confirms stereotypes in the Chinese media about "Little Emperor Syndrome," which is the idea that a generation of only children in the country is growing up coddled and unsocialized. The seeming personality changes could have real-world impacts, the researchers say, creating a relatively risk-averse generation that may hinder innovation.
However, the size of the study may limit its findings, an outside researcher warned.

Considering they are like India ,in that they have been known to dump female babies into the street to die ,its their own fault they have such a huge little emperor problem .
They only want male babies .
There was a murder at a kareoke bar bar because of a fight over some little emperors behavior .Last year I think .
Duh

Miss me?

We document that China's One-Child Policy, one of the most radical approaches to limiting population growth, has produced significantly less trusting, less trustworthy, more risk-averse, less competitive, more pessimistic, and less conscientious individuals.

Who are all those guys going to marry and reproduce with?  They have something to get uptight about.
