Are we self-obsessed?

April 4, 2012 Executive Editor 0

How much do you really care about others?

According to a study done by the University of Michigan, college students are less empathetic today compared to students 20 to 30 years ago. Overall, students today are about 40 percent less empathetic than those of the ’80s or ’90s.
While the study reveals the drop in empathy, the research done by the university does not address the reason behind it. Some people have speculated that social-networking sites have made us self-obsessed, and because of this, college students have become less empathetic.
