As people rely more and more on technology to solve problems, the ability of humans to think for themselves will surely deteriorate.
Above is a text from GRE essay pool. I am having difficulty in relating its parts. I also read some sample essays but I am still unable to grasp the meaning.
The line I am unable to interpret is "ability of humans to think for themselves".
Does this mean that we do not give ourselves enough times? or, we do not bother our needs?
But as per the sample essays, above statement refers to human inability to think of more productive ideas of doing the same things.
Please could anyone help me in understanding the meaning.
