I would really love to know the educational, occupational, and geographical demographic of your sample cohort.
I definitely agree that as we adopt more technology into our everyday lives that the interaction with technology becomes second nature to younger generations that the experience manifests itself as “intelligence”. I’m sure we’re as impressed with a high school student’s ability to whip up a web application as my grandparents were at me for making the VCR clock tell the right time instead of flash 12:00 over and over.
I don’t observe the wisdom value or distribution having changed at all either positively or negatively. Which in my estimation makes for a much more dangerous equation.
