I saw on Daily Mail that this trait is directly related to mask wearing.  Apparently this trait is related to what we call IQ.

 

Does it make sense to you?

NIH.gov has related studies.  This capacity is very short short term memory.  I guess if one couldn't hold all the concepts of the danger of the virus in one's head at the same time, there would be less urgency to wear a mask.

@noodleann Easy enuf to say.  I do think it has implications for public health education.  Keep messages about masks simple.  Yeah.

Rather interesting to think about.

 

Calls to my mind the recent (past few years) discussions (not here particularly) about short attention span being caused/exacerbated by certain applications of modern technology.

 

No stick-to-itiveness.  Move quickly from one idea to another without depth.

 

Speaks to a lot of things going on currently.

Yes, @QueenDanceALot , the study spawns ideas.  Would it help compliance to put a big word MASK on each mask?  Would it help compliance among those with weaker memories?
