University study says iPhone seperation anxiety can make you dumber

Written by
Its kind of wired but it is so true in many cases according to tests conducted by University of Missouri, an iPhone owner may become anxious and he or she might perform poorly in mental tasks if they are separated from his or her iPhone.

There were 40 participants in the test and told that they are doing a simple cognitive study and were separated from their iPhone on false claims of the handset causing “Bluetooth interference.”

My own say [iAppleStuffs]: I am also an iPhone user. Trust me – sometimes i also feel stupid without iPhone. At time I just smile by looking at the apple logo of my iPhone. I just love the shines. I feel grateful to Apple for making me creative. I was so dependent on using apps in life. But at time i couldn’t use apps and i felt stupid that i can’t do things without apps. Like- Taking notes, to-do tasks etc. So its true whatever the research says.  I feel dumb now :/ but i am happy with the iPhone 🙂 ~

Research Results: Once separated, the researchers noted that the test subjects performed more poorly in a simple quiz compared to when they had kept the phone with themselves. The subjects were not allowed to use the iPhone during the first round of quiz sessions. Additionally, giving a missed call on the subject’s iPhone during the quiz made them more anxious and caused a further decline in their performance in the quiz.

“Our findings suggest that iPhone separation can negatively impact performance on mental tasks. Additionally, the results from our study suggest that iPhones are capable of becoming an extension of our selves such that when separated, we experience a lessening of ‘self’ and a negative physiological state,” said Russell Clayton, lead author of the study.
Bases on the fact of this research apart from it, the researchers suggested that iPhone owners should not part with their phones during situations that require a lot of attention like taking exams, sitting in conferences and more.

Even though the report focused solely on the iPhone, it is likely that the same results should be applicable on other smartphone owners as well and the truth is technology is taking us apart from our real life to some extent.
