E-mail is a threat to your IQ, according to a study conducted by researchers at the University of London. The average computer user’s IQ drops an average of 10 points during testing when he or she is interrupted regularly by incoming e-mail messages, the study found. It also concluded that women are better at such multitasking than men are.
Maybe it’s time to take a step back from being so connected.
