Smart phone proximity inverse correlates with cognitive capacity - alexander - Fri, 07 Jul 2017 13:56:40 +0000

«We see a linear trend that suggests that as the smartphone becomes more noticeable, participants’ available cognitive capacity decreases. [...] Your conscious mind isn’t thinking about your smartphone, but that process—the process of requiring yourself to not think about something—uses up some of your limited cognitive resources. It’s a brain drain.»

Sounds like addiction to me.
