China's Post-90s Generation Open-minded, Frustration-prone

China's new generation of freshmen, born in the 1990s, were more open-minded than their predecessors but less able to cope with frustration, a survey has found.

The survey covered 800 students at Wuhan University in central China's Hubei Province, who entered in September from all over the country. They answered questions on consumption, psychology and social issues.

They were found to be neither as selfish nor as difficult to get along with as people generally believed to be, according to the survey, released on Wednesday by the China Youth Daily.

In the survey, 77 percent said they were self-confident and 64.8 percent considered themselves open-minded and ready to try new things.

However, 72.3 percent said frustrations would have a negative impact on them.

Xiao Yongping, dean of the law college of the university, said the post-1990s students were more independent in thinking and choosing than those born in the 1970s and 1980s. He said their childhood environment -- the Internet age with abundant information -- had made them precocious, self-confident and passionate.
