Poll: Does Internet Use Make You Smarter?

, In , , , , ,

Three out of four people surveyed said they think using the Internet is making us smarter, not more stupid, according to a study jointly done by the Pew Internet & American Life Project and Elon University's Imagining the Internet Center.

The study polled 895 technologists, business executives, scientists and analysts as part of Pew's fourth annual Future of the Internet study.  According to the study, 76% of everyone polled said that by 2020, intelligence will be enhanced by the ease of access to information, and that people will become smarter and make better choices. Only 21% said the Internet could be lowering the IQs of avid users.

So, it's your turn to be polled.  What do you think?

Does Internet Use Make You Smarter?

Most Certainly
