Immature At Heart

Discovery News is reporting that “that grown-ups are more immature than ever.” You might think that these immature grownup are the twenty and early thirty sometimes that live at home with their parents and play video games during their free time. But don’t blame video games for this generation’s immaturity level, blame education. From the article:

“By contrast, many modern adults fail to attain this maturity, and such failure is common and indeed characteristic of highly educated and, on the whole, effective and socially valuable people,” he said.

“People such as academics, teachers, scientists and many other professionals are often strikingly immature outside of their strictly specialist competence in the sense of being unpredictable, unbalanced in priorities, and tending to overreact.”
