Cell phones distract less frequent internet users more

first_imgIf you are an infrequent internet user, then mere presence of a smartphone can adversely affect your cognitive performance, a study has found.“The mere presence of a mobile phone was a distraction among infrequent internet users,” said Jun-ichiro Kawahara, Associate Professor at Hokkaido University, Japan.The researchers also found that people who are often glued to a screen are not easily distracted by the presence of a cell phone.In presence of a mobile phone, people are automatically drawn to it and then the individual differences decide how they attempt to ignore it.

For the another group, a memo pad of the same size as the phone was placed by the monitor, and the same experiment was conducted.
