Why Are People Biased Against New Technology?

In my opinion, the target audience of this article is youth people. Everyone’s receptivity is different. This article is about the acceptance of new technologies. He made a point: If the status-quo story is true, then they should be less skeptical of it if it was invented before they were born, and more skeptical of it if it was invented after they were born. The results of Matthew Fisher’s research show that this is a fact. The older the technology, the easier it is for people to accept it. On the contrary, the first reaction of people to the latest technology is often to doubt the feasibility of this new technology, but once they start to doubt it, their acceptance of this matter will decline.
