"Smarter" in the sense the sum of human knowledge is, almost inevitably and by definition, more than preceding generations, then yes.

Otherwise, probably not.

every generation goes through this...thinking the next generations are more stupid. Actually human intelligence remains roughly the same...people just know different things as the world changes. I can't say that everything they know now is useful or important however. It could be that yougins these days know alot of nothing. LOL

Community Rating: Community Star

Smater - Depends on who you ask
Common Sense - Maybe
Values - NO

And the last two I feel is what matters the most.

Yes. Because they know everything I tried to know plus some before even trying or before they were interested in learning.

I think they are smarter when it comes to technology.

I think they are much stupider when it comes to face to face communications. They seem to know nothing about it.

Hell naw!! Let's start with attire. Pants sagging down to their ankles knowing & not caring what that represents. Guys sitting around unemployed leeching off the ladies, playing video games all day long. Throw in the females that tolerate such guys & hold on to em like they have a real gem. The music is worse, degrading & negative. The mindset of today is about greed, getting paid & the bottom line, forget the betterment of mankind.... ok done...

Is there a difference between INTELLIGENCE and COMMON SENSE? And, if so, which would you place more value on.

Anything that is never used is USELESS.

How can I answer this? We can measure IQ, I guess. Today's generation probably is more technically savvy. But they also take designer drugs that older folks haven't even heard of.
