Stott: Circumstances shape feelings about news
I read an interesting story this week about the effect the sluggish economy is having on recent college graduates. The story said that although grads are experiencing trouble finding jobs, they have an easier time than job searchers with only a high school diploma.
I read this story from my current perspective, as a college graduate seeking an additional degree.
Then I remembered back to the time when I wasn’t sure if I would get my bachelor’s degree. I was one of those job-seekers with just a high school diploma. I read the story again. It felt different to me. I had actively framed the story from a different perspective, one I had once had. The information seemed to tell me something else.
