Are We Really Getting Dumber? (research)

According to research, man has lost motivation to think and be wise and so the innovations today and all other ideas are a bit out of date and a shame for man's evolution. With the current inventions, there is hardly any reason for man to think and move anymore.

Do you really think that we have lost the motivation to think and be wise? What do you think is hindering us from "thinking"? Are we really getting dumber and dumber?

Yes where is the research?

I dont think we are getting dumber.
Kids are getting smarter in terms of how the make use of these latest toys (gadgets eg. Smartphone) to bring up creative ways to pass time or make.others laugh.
Although kids.are too getting pampered which will in turn be a bane towards their future.

Dumber, not sure. Lazier, yes. Technology have made us, humans, lazier.

No neh. Most of the kids these days are getting smarter and smarter. They seem to be aware of the surrounding when they were born.

Almost everyone faces a dental problem at some point in their lives. Sometimes dental issues are caused by the care you take of your teeth, or lack of, while other times they are caused simply by your heredity.

Then, modern technologies make us lazier and currently it making us dumber. sadly come to think of it, there's truth in it. As much as modern technologies make us smarter in certain direction, it sacrifice in another. How many of us really notice that we spell wrongly if not by the spell check function.

Re: Are We Really Getting Dumber? (research)

to a certain extent yes i would agree....

for example. now pri/sec sch students are relying so much on calculator that even my pri 5 cousin doesn't know her basic multiplication of 8x6. but when a basic math question is given to her with a calculator, she can answer it.
another example, which so happen to be math as well, my other cousin who is sec 3 currently is relying on calculator to help him do basic simultaneous equations and factorization

would i call tis lazy or dumb?

ppl of the next generation are starting to rely on technology, so much so that they have forgotten abt the basic. ppl are getting dumb becoz we are relying so much on technology that we stop using our brain.

Re: Are We Really Getting Dumber? (research)

It's a double edge sword.. you can either take advantage of technology, or be a slave to it.

Compared to last time where our parents would have to buy a set of encyclopedia and we have to constantly refer to it, today we get information with a touch of a button. I like it when I come across something i don't know and a quick google settles the doubt. Kids are also getting a headstart and some of them are writing iphone apps at ages as young as 10.

Just because information is more readily available, I wouldn't say it makes people lazier that now they don't have to walk 5kms to a library in order to get an answer, but the sets of challenges today are different now compared to yesterday. The bar is always rising. 20++ years ago if you knew how to program, you could have started another Apple. Today if you know how to program, you're just one of the millions of other who know how to do it also. We all start from scratch when we are born, so the learning curve of today is much higher and is always rising, an added tool or advantage in that sense is always welcome.

unfortunately you have alot of people who don't know how to utilize and take advantage of the technology, but instead choose to use it as a quick and convenient means of entertainment.. then they become addicted and as a result daily productivity decreases..

Re: Are We Really Getting Dumber? (research)

I guess we're all too used to the comfort we had since we're young. That's why we started relying on the comfort instead of moving out from it.

And I don't feel that inventions is the one that's stopping our creativity. I feel it's the society and how society has made us to view ourselves. Instead of thinking ourselves as an individual, our mindsets have been changed to view ourselves as minions in a society. We are being controlled by higher ups to do what they want. We have been controlled by money to do what we dislike.

We did not evolve from monkeys to be like this. We are not born to do this. A book was suggesting that we have anxiety disorders because the world is advancing before we are evolved to fit in this world.

The process of natural selection is basically ruined by modern advancements. And yes, technology is disabling us by providing convenience in every way possible.

To stimulate the economy, we (Central bankers aka Ben Bernankie/ Janet Yellen) switch on $$$ printing presses as they would their sex vibrator toy. Ultimately, the only people happy are those within their lewd circle of orgasm, and everyone outside suffers: hyper inflation, increased taxation to pay gahmen debt, unaffordable public housing prices etc

Maybe only pain (joblessness, hyper-inflation) causes people to think, but for now, central banks and their money printing vibrator sex toys are switched on round the clock...and it wouldn't take too long for them to be found out...



$$$ printing/ Abenomics:

in a way,i feel we are gettting dumber..not because educations make us dumb but thru the lazy character that most people have in them..there are many duplications and imitations out there trying to be the best when they did not work hard for it..however,there are still clever n hardworking people out there..but very few...

Having reached the apex of the food chain, we have face less danger and are guaranteed survival. As such, going by logic, over time complacency will set in as we lost the motivation to adapt to changes and dangers around us and instead go in pursuit of insignificant things. So of course, we'll all be becoming dumber as a whole race...
