There are many big, controversial questions in this world that I could just write on here that would set the room on fire with opinion, but I'm going to choose to focus a bit on questions that relate to our generation and may not be talked about very often. Hopefully they will provoke a little thought in each individual person that reads this because they are more personal questions.
The first question I would like to look into is how what you wear affects how well you work (at school in this case). There was a study done by people in different outfits, and the ones who were more dressed up did much better, and were more confident. Do you think this is true? When you come to school in sweatpants, are you as confident as when you come to school in a well put together outfit? People compare in high school a lot. Who does better in school, who is wearing the nicest outfit, who has the best personality. Let's talk about how it does or does not affect you.
Another question that I would like to bring up is are you really addicted to your phone or are older people just telling you that? What makes someone addicted to their phone?
This link from the Huffington Post talks about how phones affect our lives and how we can check if we may have Nomophobia.
“Nomophobia is considered a modern age phobia introduced to our lives as a byproduct of the interaction between people and mobile information and communication technologies, especially smartphones,” Caglar Yildirim
First, take the quiz to find out where you lay on the scale. It ranges from not at all Nomophobic to severe Nomophobia. Are your results accurate?
Let's talk about how phones affect us in our everyday lives, and if you think you are actually addicted to your phone. Or, if you think the test is an inaccurate depiction of your relationship with your phone. Be honest with yourself!
1. Does what you wear affect how well you work and how confident you are in school?
2. Are you really addicted to your phone?
