a new study backs you up!
Researchers say, compared to college students of the 1970’s, those in post-secondary school today are 40% less empathetic. They’re more likely to deny the feelings and opinions of others. The study claims the current era of me-me-me social networking that avoids actual face-to-face interaction is partly to blame. They also cite over-exposure to other media including reality television and video games.
I’m no scientist but it seems to me that every generation has its self-centred dolts who don’t really care about anyone but themselves. From Hugh Hefner down to Paris Hilton, they are fodder for media blather because of their ego-centric personality types. I guess I’m just lucky. The young women of college age whom I know are caring, sensitive, responsible, ambitious, peanut-butter-cookie-baking sweethearts.
