Is it normal for old people to decline in mental capacity
Is it normal for old people to decline in mental capacity, yet believe they are actually smarter? They no longer educate, they barely understand technology (cannot google), rarely read, no longer work - yet they think they are smarter than everyone around them? How?
It is said they are "elders". This is not true in our generation. We are not an indian tribe or obscure aboriginal group. We have databases of knowledge, advanced learning and accelerated tech. Literally any subject you want to study can be done online. They really cannot compare to someone in their 40's that is wise, learned and working.
Why do they still think they are "smart" or deserve blind respect just for being old and grumpy?
