路透社:一心多用者一事无成

nucifera: At last, 大家可以把目光回到佛陀教育理所说的“戒、定、慧”。无戒不生定,无定慧不存。

另一方面,借此nucifera提出两个有待科学论证的hypothesis。第一,观赏/消费多媒体的总时间和个人心思状态混乱的程度成正比例关系。第二个人心思状态混乱的程度和控制情绪的能力成反比关系。

如果以上两个hypothesis都为真,我们就可以一窥新时代人类抗压性低和情绪控制能力低的一个重要原因:消费过多多媒体。

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Multitaskers of media activities like watching YouTube, writing e-mail and talking on the phone are not very good at any of their tasks, according to a Stanford University report on Monday.

Researchers who published the report in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences said the results had surprised them. They were looking for the secret to good media multitaskers but instead found broad-based incompetence.

“Heavy multitaskers are lousy at multitasking… The more you do it, the worse you get,” said Stanford communications professor Clifford Nass.

Compulsive media multitaskers are worse at focusing their attention, worse at organizing information, and worse at quickly switching between tasks, the Stanford scientists wrote.

After testing about 100 Stanford students, the scientists concluded that chronic media multitaskers have difficulty focusing and are not able to ignore irrelevant information.

Nass said that multitasking is becoming more widespread — some jobs require workers to keep an instant message window open — and the scientists were surprised at the results.

“We knew that multitasking was difficult from a cognitive perspective. We thought, ‘What’s this special ability that people have that allows them to multitask?’ … Rather than finding things that they were doing better, we found things they were doing worse,” Stanford symbolic systems professor Eyal Ophir said.

A bright side to such distraction may mean that the media multitaskers will be first to notice anything new, Ophir said.
