Nowadays, life can be considered more simple, logical, and strategic because of the use of technology. The way technology has developed and affected the world is astronomical. Yet, the use of technology has caused teens and young adults to become “dumber” over time. The mind simply does not work the same way it did 40 years ago. The true definition of dumb is “lacking such fundamental cognitive capacities as the ability to think critically and logically” (Begley, 2014). People quickly blame technology for the lack of skills in children and are quick to call them dumb.
