Why can’t they—and you—ever stop texting/facebooking/ youtubing/emailing/gaming? I reviewed current psychology research about when, where and why people are distracted by their smartphones—in class, while studying or working, while walking or driving, even on dates or coffee with friends. Research has revealed the serious consequences of mobile phone distraction and the myth of multitasking. Cognitive psychology can explain why tech distractions lead to failure and accidents. I also talked about some solutions from psychological research that can help us put that phone down.
