Done? Good. Now, for those with kids, think about your kids. For everyone, think about your co-workers. Can you see where they fit in relation to this study?
Emma seems to be a pretty classic case of stasis. My mom says I was too, but I don’t think I was, certainly not to the extent that Emma is. Emma complains of boredom, and then shuns every suggestion given to her since she can’t excel at it. I don’t remember being that bored.
Sara’s a different nugget to crack with regards to this study. I’ll have to think a bit more about her (though commenters who know her are welcome to jump in with thoughts).
Deep, deep thoughts.
