"We think people are unwilling to reflect more because it takes time and effort and in daily life we don't have the luxury of time to verify everything," commented Dr. Rahwan.

It turns out that immediate access to endless amounts of information is actually inhibiting our thought processes instead of adding to it. Researchers call it "superficial intelligence" and an encourager of relying on others' opinions.

Information sharing among social media websites also tends to make us just plain lazy and prohibits individuals from forming their own opinions when they can easily access the opinions of others and simply blend in.

This study, like 80-90% of studies, was probably done to get a publishing credit and isn't reproducible.


From what I can tell most people on Twitter/Facebook were that way to begin with. Being on twitter/facebook just makes it obvious.

Everybody has a sense of priorities.

The people who don't have any sense - have odd priorities.
