Are you a young adult? Do you send 100 or more texts a day? Guess what! You could be shallow and racist, according to a new study — at least if you're a first-year psychology student. 2,300 were polled for three years in a row at the University of Winnipeg to test a theory that text and Twitter fanatics are superficial and prone to ethnic prejudice. Heavy texters were found to be "significantly less reflective" and 30 percent less likely to desire an "ethical, principled life." Well, OK, but what does it all mean? "There may be changes in the culture that people are slightly less reflective than they used to be," said professor Paul Trapnell, "But overall, that may not be a bad thing." Apart from the racist stuff, presumably. [Source]
