Smart people are easily side-tracked at work as they find it hard to arrange tasks as per there priorities, as a research shows.
Steelcase, Workplace company found that conventionally smarter individuals often become harassed when they had numerous things to do at once.
Dr Ned Hallowell, Psychiatrist said, they tried to deal with each idea as it arose, prominent to a “feeling of insufficiency and incapability to deal with the workload.”
The study from 17 countries &10,000 staff revealed that the ordinary worker was diverted every three minutes by the internet or emails.
The rise of technology has aggravated the matter. Smartphones are said to take up twice as much time as they did four years ago, with most checking their devices around 200 times a day.
Conferring to Dr Hallowell, the phenomenon means some people rented for their intellect be unsuccessful to achieve their own as well as their bosses’ prospects.
Bostjan Ljubic, of Steelcase, said: “Employers are always on the lookout for the brightest people available, though the trouble to endure interruptions and multiple tasks in the office marks smart people in the same way as everyone else, if not more.
“The ways in which we work are altering more quickly than ever before and the brain is being imperilled to distractions and stresses which can lead to overload and statistics show that distractions in the place of work are on upsurge.”
