attitude of entitlement/entitled attitude/sense of entitlement

I am answering a closed question because I honestly think that the ''demanding attitude'' is not the only option here and as far as I understand the concept, less suitable and less frequently used that the notion of ''entitlement''.

So just to put this out here.

agree  Frank Szmulowicz, Ph. D.: This is better than all previous answers. It is also known as a "me attitude" or "let me get mine before you get yours".

  -> Thanks, Frank. I've seen it frequently used for benefit claimants, teenagers, upper classes, white cis het males specifically and males in general. So quite a spectrum.
