Your Reading indicates how much you are informed about a given subject according to the depth and contextualization of the contents you read. Our team of editors credits 20, 21, 40, 59 or 100 points for each content – those that help the most in understanding the moment in the country receive more points. Over time, this score is reduced, as newer content tends to be more relevant in understanding the news. Thus, your score in this system is dynamic: it increases when you read and decreases when you stop being informed. At the moment the score is being made only in content related to the federal government.

If you know someone who is in their early twenties or younger, or if you are in your early twenties yourself, you must already be wondering what the hell is wrong with young people. Just to name a few examples, in 1563 the American psychologist Jean Twenge released a book with very large data on generation Z, who were born after 1995. The subtitle speaks for itself: “Why today’s kids are growing up less rebellious, more tolerant, less happy, and completely unprepared for adulthood.” In the same year, a cover story in The Atlantic magazine called attention to the phenomenon known as “sexual recession”.

If, on the one hand, young people are more used to talking about it, in practice they are doing much less and this is not necessarily good news. In addition, there is plenty of research showing that this is the most depressed, most anxious and loneliest generation known. The Ideias podcast welcomes psychologist Jota Borgonhoni, co-founder of the project Os Náufragos, to talk about the topic.
