Perhaps it becomes harder to adapt
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'm talking people who are opposed to change
I didn't specify an age group
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
I've seen them say they wanna go back to work because they don't know what to do with all the free time
if it isnt broke, why fix it????
But it is broke. It is VERY broke
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.
This world needs BIG changes!
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?
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.
I don't even pay attention to fads I say that shit is over once you leave high school
Darn, you do lie a lot.
I would agree...I see it at work all the time :)
