Negative Stories on Youth Boost Self-Esteem of Older People

0 comments

Older people prefer to read about negative stories about today’s youth as opposed to positive stories about younger people or any type of story about their generation. This was found in a study conducted in Germany on the reading habits of people in relation to self esteem.

The old are considered wise but slow and forgetful – things that are considered negative traits by young people, which prefer to read stories about other young people regardless of message. Youngsters therefore reinforces the notion that the youth sector is important in society, while older people sees the mistakes of the younger generation as a way to boost their self-esteem.
