And that would come somewhat from our education system. We're never taught or even told to think on our own, just to recite the correct answers.We are the generation that can't think for ourselves. We rely on information from others to do the thinking.
I was a part of this illiteracy influence in my teenage years.We are a very illiterate generation in a few ways. First, we don't read books. I'm not really a part of that because I like to read and write, but a lot of people I know haven't picked up anything bigger than a magazine and read it in years.
Second, we shorten the shortest words to make texting and IM'ing easier. Why is three letters, you is also three. To and too are two and three letters, respectively. There is no need to shorten them.
This typically is a development that only happens if you take your way of thinking up to the next level to begin with. I always felt, and still very often feel out of touch with many of my generation, typically I resonate better with people that have 10 to 20 years on me.Well, believe it or not, it was posting on a forum that taught me how to write. I joined the animal planet forums when I was 15 and that improved my writing more school could have. If I wanted my arguments to be taken seriously by a bunch of adults, then I had to present my position coherently and fluently. Most people thought I was in my mid 20's when I was really only 16.
Thats true. I wasn't on the forum for socialization. I was debating things like the ethics of shock collars and dog evolution. My way of thinking was at the next level, debating on a forum just allowed my writing skills to catch up.This typically is a development that only happens if you take your way of thinking up to the next level to begin with.

Taking the average from my personal experiences it's save to assume tat most ppl will nvr grow out of doin' these tings, cuz it's cool n a habit they best not be lo0sing. Well, they may do eventually, but that will be long past the point of no return.
