9. "Boomeritis"
Ken Wilbur wrote a book on the narcisstic "boomers".

Here is some info on it.

"Boomeritis divides the soul: a desperately narcissistic reliance on the sophistication and comprehension of one's mind over the force of life that animates our hearts. And this division destroys the possibility of the spiritual transformation that our collective evolution demands. "
