From the author:




eMailThey make stupider than kippers

As the Manager Completely stoned at the desk, he praised him for his zeal for work and gave him another joint in his hand. Incredible Worthy? Not quite! A study at London's King's College wanted to find out how the constant retrieval of mails affects the intelligence quotient.

One group was drunk with marijuana, the other with mails. When the boss praised his coworker for fast mails, possibly by mail, he holds him on digital drug.

Why multitasking is inhumane

The term multitasking is inhuman: it comes from the computer language and refers to the ability of an operating system to cope with several tasks at the same time. Each of these processes accesses the central brain of the computer, the main processor. This distributes the capacities. But the processes only seem to happen at the same time: they take place in rapid succession.

And if you activate too many processes on the computer, you will feel it: Then the computer is stuck. And we say, again humanizing: "The computer has hung up!" First aid is provided by the Windows Task Manager, for example, which cancels individual processes to create capacity for others.

The human brain can only process one process at a time

At the same time, the human brain can also process only one process, only one thought. Its capacity is always the same, even if someone starts many operations.

The human concentration is like a tube from which a certain amount of water flows: no drop is lost as long as the tube is directed to a single bucket. The bucket fills quickly.

Caution Streaking Loss!

But what happens if you want to distribute the water to several buckets at the same time? Each time the tubing changes the bucket, water passes - a loss of spreading. And it takes much longer for the individual buckets to become full; after all, everyone gets only a fraction of the original amount.

As we move from task to task, from mailing to telephoning, from texting to conferencing, concentration is lost, as is the water between the buckets. The more often the concentration tube changes the working vessel, the less left over for the individual process.
