(Some Guy)   A new study suggests that millennials aren't more sensitive than the baby boomer generation. In fact, it's the other way around. GenX just stands back and smirks   (insidermag.net) divider line

I can believe that, given all the tantrums Boomers have been throwing.

As a Gen Xer I have to say this is 100% correct.

WHO CARES? Can you guys have a thought without turning to social media to find out if it's valid?

Yeh. It's part of the challenge of Fark. To make sh*tty smartass comments about something you know nothing about. If you're lucky, someone will get pissed at you as well. I'd provide an example, but I honestly can't be bothered. I'm too busy standing back and smirking.

Before I decide whether I agree with this without reading the article, is it the kind where "sensitive" is considered a good thing or a bad thing?

This is old, bad science.  First, it was published originally last year. Second, this is based on them reinterpreting a selected, not random, sample of 750 people from someone else's dataset. Its the third time he's done this from the original dataset in 2017.  They picked the people they thought should be sensitive  so their study is a tautology - it is always true because you defined it as true.  Third, they only used 1 measurement for another trait.  Imagine defining a person as being happy and  only thing you look at is how long their largest crow's foot is. Next, they contradict themselves so many times its hard to keep track of how often.

Lastly, a common measurement of a paper's importance and accuracy is how often it is cited by others in its field.   91% of the authors' citations are them citing each other for this one dataset and averages way less than it should (22 vs social psychology average of 38). Those in their field have rejected the papers based on the original dataset and so should we,

Why would we be throwing tantrums?  We already own everything, make all the money, and don't care about anything but ourselves.  We are the Fortunate People.

Right?
