I feel like it got worse because there s new shiny objects to look at. And I would now this first hand, I have the attention span of a cat.
I like how you said the things around us distract us. Especially the new things
The attention span of a cat, lol. I think everyone does.
New objects do distract us. Eventually we get used to them and have to get the new and better one.
I agree we get distracted from shiny objects
Attention spams are getting lower and lower I think. There is so many more things to think about at once, it's hard to focus.
I agree, and I think sometimes teens like to think about more things than adults.
I agree people choose to think about so many things that don't matter and get distracted by them.
Worst. We have so many distractions in our life we can't stay focused. Even if our technology is taken away we still wonder if this person texted us. Or how many likes we got on our Instagram post. No matter what we are always concerning ourselves with other things.
I agree we are so concerned with so many things we allow ourselves to be distracted by them.
I think attention spans are worse now because we are all so involved in technology and that's where our attention almost automatically goes to.
I agree, our eyes automatically go to something flashy and interesting like technology.
Not just technology. There is the election drama, holidays, and other things we "have to" keep up with.
Definitely worse, we have so many more distractions nowadays that we have a hard time concentrating on something. Also, there are so many things that we have going on, our minds are constantly clicking and it's hard to focus when your brain is in a torrent.
I like how you said that there are more distractions and it makes it harder for us to concentrate.
I think our attention spans are worse because there is so much more to distract us now. Our worlds are constantly moving and changing and there are more sounds and actions that distract us from whatever we should be paying attention to. An example is when someone is talking and the person they are talking to is ignoring them and on their phone.
Yeah i like how you said our worlds are constantly moving.
I agree how we ignore people for our phones.
I think they are worse because now a days people are constantly thinking about other things happening in there life whether it's homework, social media, or that we are just focusing on what we need to do at home. Are minds are constantly working and thinking and processing. The fact that there's so much for us to focus on Anne think about makes it so are attention span is super short.
I agree that people are constantly thinking of other things.
I agree, I feel social media does take your attention away a lot
I think attention spans are worse. There are so many more things for distractions in this day and age. People get bored quickly and there are more things to look at like phones and signs and people. Back then there was not as many distractions, you had to focus on churning butter or training horses, one individual thing.
I agree with you that people are getting a lot quicker bored
I like how you said people get bored😂 It's so true. It's bad but true
I think it is getting worst because we have more distractions in our work then we had in the later days. We have more challenges that we could be thinking about instead of what a person is saying or what you should be paying attention to
Great point on how we have more distractions at work than we did in the past.
I think they are getting shorter. I feel like we have so many distractions like social media, technology, multi-tasking, etc.
I agree that we have a lot more distractions
We are constantly trying to get things done, so we must multi-task which doesn't help our attention span at all.
I feel your response is very short kinda like your attention span
I think attention spans are worse because we have so many other things to think about than in the past. We are constantly doing and thinking about things on our phones. Life also doesn't require as much focus as cavemen who had to think about survival.
I like how you mentioned that it doesn't take as much focus to live right now. Which is kindve true because we have a lot of things done for us such as a lot of our survival
I agree that they are worse. We have so many things to focus on and we are constantly checking things on our phones.
I think there worse because there are more distraction. Things like the buss of your phone will take you off focus. I think people don't make enough time to focus on something and not get distracted by anything else.
I agree that people don't take enough time to focus on the things that really do matter
I agree that people don't take enough time to focus on something.
I feel attention spans are worse because we have so many more to things to distract us and take our attention away from where it's suppose to be. Even if it's for a split second to look and see who u got a snapchat from, you still look and and your attention is in a different place then where it should be.
I agree that our attention spans are worse. We break away from what we are doing to check a snapchat or message constantly.
I feel like attention spans are worse than they've been in the past. We now have so much technology at our fingertips that allows our minds to wander off of the topic we were on. I also feel that the newer generations aren't raised the ways that our ancestors were and don't have the discipline of paying close attention, we just let our mind say wander and do what ever they want and don't really care about it much.
Yes, so much technology it's crazy.
I feel like attention spans are worse than they've been before because a lot of things come to us right when we want them so when we actually have to wait for something we get really impatient and just go to something easier.
I enjoyed how you said when we get impatient we go to something that's easier.
I like how you said we get inpatient when we have to wait for things.
I agree that when things aren't immediately given to us we move on to something easier or faster.
I feel like attention spans have been worse than in the past. I believe this because since technology has become faster, we have come to expect things to be almost immediate and if it takes more than a few seconds to complete, we get board and focus on other things. Also, there is so much stuff to focus on in this world.
I completely agree on the time. We have become lazy and anything that "takes longer then it should" we lose focus on.
I agree that there's so much to focus on nowadays. It makes it harder to concentrate on the things that you need to.
I like how you said that if it takes more than a few seconds we get bored and focus on other things.
I think attention spans have gotten worse because of phones and all of the technology that we have today
I agree! Technology can be very distracting and make it hard to concentrate.
I think that the attention spans of children and others today have dramatically decreased compared to the attention spans of people from past generations. People from this generation I feel like have to be constantly entertained and aren't willing to be patient. I also feel like since the pace of living has gotten faster, it just decreases the attention span people have because how quickly their lives are moving.
I agree that the pace of life has sped up and so we never take time to slow down and pay attention to the little things.
