Focused & Diffuse Modes - two modes of thinking

Focusing:

  • concentrating intently on sth you're trying to learn
  • sth you're rather familiar with -> thought moves smoothly as if it's traveling along a familiar, nicely paved road

Diffuse thinking:

  • more relaxed, related to a set of neural resting states
  • for new ideas/ approaches
  • looking at things broadly from a big picture perspective -> making new neural connections & pathways
  • it’s not for problem solving/finest aspects of sth, but for getting to the initial place you need to be in to home in on a solution

Each helps us to learn, but you can't be in both modes at the same time.

then what is the need of worrying?

then what is the use of worrying?”

Why Multitasking Doesn’t Work?

“Heavy multitaskers are actually worse at multitasking than most people.”

Experiment - cognitive & memory tasks with distraction:

  • Self-described multitaskers performed much worse than people who preferred to focus on single tasks.
  • Multitaskers couldn’t perform better on any elements of the test
  • Maybe chronic multitaskers are hyperdistractible people, but there’re worries that media multitasking might actually be destroying students’ capacity for reasoning

-> debate: should laptops be allowed in classrooms?

Attention:

  • is generated by conscious effort
  • is an unwilled effect of outside forces.
