Attention spans are a lot worse nowadays because i feel like people have technology that they can decide to use instead.
I agree technology is distracting
I like how you put their choices into the situation.
I totally agree. People are always on their phones.
I agree that people are deciding to have a low attention span
I feel that my attention span has gotten worse than it was in the past due to having my phone as a distraction.
I agree. Technology can be very distracting.
I had the same idea
in my opinion they are worse because they want to be on their phone and talk to friends or think they have better things to do
Attention spans are probably worse now days due to technology.
I like what you said.
I agree, technology can be very distracting
In my opinion, I think attention spans have generally gotten worse over the decades. That's because humans invented more and more constructs that could be considered by some to be distracting and unnecessary.
I agree with that.
I agree with that
I agree that there are more things that are unnecessary distractions.
I feel like it’s worse because people are more distracted nowadays. There is now social media and that can be distracting. Also I feel like people just don’t care some days to listen.
I agree that social media is a distraction.
I really like how you said this.
Pretty much anything with technology can be distracting.
I think it’s because we have so many things to entertain us.
I like that you noted that listening isnt a skill most people have. And that they are choosing not to care.
I think that people’s attention span has gotten worse because we have more things in our world today that distract us from what we are trying to focus on. We think that there is always something bigger and better which can cause us to go off topic or not want to pay attention to what is in front of us at the moment.
I agree with that
Could this be considered as paying more attention to the future than the present? If so, is it really a bad thing?
I agree with what you said.
I like how you said something bigger and better can distract us.
I think it’s better because I was super talkative when I was little. Now I’m a lot more quiet.
How does the volume/pace you speak at correlate to attention span? I know a couple people who have wondered attention spans, but are very loud.
I feel like our attention span have gotten worse. There are many different things that we have now that we didn’t have before that takes our attention away. Phones are one of those things because everyone has one and it takes our attention away.
I think are attention span has decreased. We don't seem to be able to focus for more than ten minutes, because we have so many distractions.
Yeah it’s like we need to move on faster from one thing to another
I think they are worst then they have been in the past. I think this because nowadays there are more and more things that distract us each day than there was in the past. Including technology or other things that easily distract us.
I agree technology is pretty distracting.
I agree technology can be very distracting
I believe attention spans are worse because there are more things to distract us from what we're doing such as technology.
I think they are better because I could watch tiktoks all day.
I can see how you think that it would be better. But don’t you think that doing something productive like having a job would be better?
That's true tik tok is pretty addicting
Attention spans have gotten marginally worse since phones and other technology has come out. Phones have caused the need for instant gratification, such as needing a response as soon as you send the text. Or having to wait for something to load. Somethings that would cause millennials to seriously throw a fit would be having to write a letter and waiting for the response. We expect everything to come when we want it to and never realize that not everything is about us and waiting it part of life.
I agree and like your explanation
I would say attention spans are worse because there is so much more to distract people than in the past. There is phones, computers,TV, amusement parks, and more that were not offered in the past.
I think that attention spans are worse. People are always up and having to do something, constantly remaining busy. Especially with today's technology, people are always on a phone or computer. Rarely do you see someone with a ton of patience to simply sit and wait.
I like how you said this.
Attention spans are worse nowadays because there are way more things that can distract you. Such as electronic devices, which can be very distracting.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
