So much for the myth of distracting digital devices: Distraction may actually help creativity

Anti-ebook device-hating Luddites are probably not going to like to hear this, but a new piece of research suggests that the kind of distractions from email, social media, and other extraneous inputs that they rail against may actually boost your creativity. The study, entitled “Creativity and sensory gating indexed by the P50: Selective versus leaky sensory gating in divergent thinkers and creative achievers,” published in Neuropsychologia by the Northwestern University team of Darya L. Zabelina, Daniel O’Leary, Narun Pornpattananangkul, Robin Nusslock, and Mark Beeman, has found evidence that an openness to distraction “may help people integrate ideas that are outside of focus of attention, leading to creativity in the real world.”
