The Alluring Myth of Multitasking

Truth is, when you spend less energy on lots of tasks, you’re not giving yourself enough brain power to fully accomplish anything.
Vloasis's insight:

Nice article and good points, although I'd prefer to think that some people are better able to benefit from multitasking than others. I read somewhere that Gerald Ford used to have four tvs going at once...not to say that he benefitted, per se.

Lying on Social Media Creates False Memories

Lying on Social Media Creates False Memories | Vloasis vlogging | Scoop.it
What if you could set yourself up to have a different memory in the future? Researchers say just post a false event to your social network feed.
Vloasis's insight:

From the article: "

"… the dark side of this social conformity is when we deeply lose ourselves or negate what authentically and compassionately feels to be 'us'; to the degree that we no longer recognize the experience, our voice, the memory or even the view of ourselves.”

"When this starts to happen, feelings of guilt and distaste towards ourselves can create a cognitive trap of alienation and possibly even a sense of disconnection and paranoia.”

 

 

I know of a non-FB site that demonstrates this quite well.
