It seems as though the older someone gets, the more they become opposed to change, amirite?

Perhaps it becomes harder to adapt

The voters have decided that fuzala is right! Vote on the post to say if you agree or disagree.

I think that's a myth.

The older you get the more time you have had to know what will work and what doesn't work. Been there done that. King Solomon in Ecclesiates 1:9 sums it up, " What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun. "

Older people have the gift of wisdom. there is an old saying that says "if it ain't broke don't fix it

Why would you assume that "happy people" and "people that want success in everything they do" are different people?

Hmmm, sounds like you are firmly fixed onto your own opinion, not willing to even consider another POV.

Interesting Mr. Pot.

I didn't specify an age group

Just older
harder to adapt

Like a 5 year old tends to be more open to moving than a 14 year old

The 14 year old says they already got used to school and made friends
whereas the 5 year old deals with it seeing it as an exciting thing

That's not a change

They're gonna get that toy back
either that or forget about it pretty quickly and move on to the next one

Yeah, I did forget

And again, taking a toy away isn't exactly the change I'm talking about in this context

I mean pretty much everyone changes their toothbrush with no opposition regardless of how much older they get

But guess who is more likely to be opposed to changing the brand of toothbrush? The older one

The younger generation cannot thing beyone their current ages. They feel that if you are my age 70 you should be dead, and I have had many punks tell me that.

Why change something that doesn't need changing.

You're taking this way too personally

I didn't say old people

I said older, which doesn't specify old people or young people

Like my 5 vs 14 year old examples
14 being older

They would all be out smoking dope and taking pills... LMAO

I have various opinions on this, but right now I'm thinking of time dialation. To a person of 20 years five years is a long time. A full quarter of their lives. A couple of changes is this period is not particularly a big deal. To an person of 60 years five years is comparitively much less time. 1/12 of their life and memory. The same amount of change feels faster and more recent (in memory) than it did to the younger person's perspective.

I like change it means we progress and hopefully improve, but for some they don't like it.

everyone is diffrent. i am more open to change right now than i was 2 or 3 years ago.

I'm 65 and I want virtually everything about the Obama administration to change.

I hate change...if it ain't broke don't fix it

Depends on the type of change you're talking about. There's good change and bad change. I'm not gonna change myself to please society. However, I'm also constantly changing for the better. Learning more and becoming wiser.

I wonder if that has any evolutionary function?

@fuzala any guesses?

Might be preservation. Change often means risk.

I've actually been getting more open to change as I've aged and dealt more with it. Change has always been a struggle for me.

The older I get, the more I adjust to change.
