Even though most of us are pretty technology proficient in 2018, it’s hard to keep up with all of the advancements happening.
I have a lot of admiration for our grandparents’ generation. Electricity wasn’t as prevalent, people communicated by mail and if someone left the country, you’d have no way to see them.
Now? The same grandparents that didn’t have any inkling of personal computers when they were children are now proficient smartphone users, have social media accounts and even send memes every once in a while. Will millennials be able to stay on top of things once we’re elderly?
Even if we consider ourselves early adopters, technology is changing so quickly that in a couple of years, there may be products we haven’t even thought about. How do you measure up? Are you an inventor, always one step ahead of the game? Are you mass-driven, only adopting new gadgets once everyone knows about them? Or are you a little bit slower, innovating only when strictly necessary?
Check out today’s infographic to see where you fall on this scale. As for me, I just hope I can adopt these new inventions as easily as my granny learned to FaceTime the whole family.
