    To cut it short to an answer of that question, yes. It gives meaningless people a reason to think people care what they do day to day.

    the internet dosent exactly make people stupid, some people use it to be entertained, some to comunicate, some to learn… etc. it would be closer to the internet makes the dumb dumber, and the smart smarter. its essentially the collective knowledge of the human race at our doorstep, people will use it how they want.

    I did that.I wanted so bad to be right about everything.I prejudged so fast anytime something seemed to be negative about someone else I just didn’t listen & assumed that it was one way.I don’t think I have been listening to alot of things as I was told they were bad.I need to think for myself & not jump to conclusions so fast.I have been programmed like alot of people by my fears about people and other things without even realizing it.

    I would be interested to know if these polled see themselves as narcissistic. Meaning, they acknowledge their generations issue, but do they accept their part in the narcissism?
