Typically spotted in small groups of three or four with a parent, supervisor or other adult, the Text Happy Teen almost always chooses to text a
message rather than communicate it verbally...even if he or she is texting to a person within arm's reach. As such, these teens' eyes are rarely raised from
glowing LCDs and their faces can be slightly electro-tanned. Started as a modern form of passing notes, texting has been taken by these teens to a new
level, which often involves texting multiple people within eyeshot simultaneously. Most teens are extremely proficient, rapid typers, but don't even, like,
try to talk to them mid-text.
