Nice Link - How Smartphones Hijack Our Mind

  • Less empathy. more anxiety, less knowledge. check smartphones a whopping 80 times a day, 30000 times a year...intellect weakens as brain grows dependent on the gadget...studies conducted
  • Concentration and problem solving, cognitive capacity and fluid intelligence affected by proximity to phone (gets worse as phone is nearer and better as phone is far away and inaccessible, whether phone is in sight or out of sight)
  • When phone rings and people cannot answer their BP increases, pulse quickens, problem solving decreases
  • When phone is in hand low interpersonal closeness and trust, empathy and understanding
  • Delusions of intelligence when actually they know less
  • Give the mind more room to think
