Andy Smith, an expert in NLP and Emotional Intelligence, has written an excellent article on dumbing down in British culture. He describes how the UK tabloid press and TV culture are lowering our levels of emotional intelligence through:
- Living other people’s lives instead of our own.
- Passing judgement.
- Encouraging a ‘them and us’ mentality.
It’s an excellent article and I agree with every word of it. In fact, I wished I’d written it.
