When the respondents were asked for their view on this statement "I'm willing to work as hard as I would if I ran my own business to promote an enterprise that is beneficial to my country and the people", 85 percent of the new century generation agreed with that.

But only 44.2 percent agreed with this statement "I will work hard for the honor of my class or school at the cost of my own benefit", which indicates that the new generation places equal importance on society and individuality.

Another trend is that more children from wealthy family agree with those two statements than those from less wealthy or poor family, with 5 percentage points of more rich kids agreeing with both statements.
