Journalists' brains show a lower-than-average level of executive functioning, according to a new study, which means they have a below-average ability to regulate their emotions, suppress biases, solve complex problems, switch between tasks, and show creative and flexible thinking.

Difficult to think for yourself when you are hard-wired to spew shit from your mouths.

Makes sense given the news industry is not geared towards acquiring and disseminating facts, but rather acting as a stage for gossipy motherfuckers. Probably a combination of most media being controlled by only a half-dozen mega corporations who've turned the industry into purely shit 24x7 infotainment, which in turn only attracts these types of self-righteous buffoons into the industry.

Journalists' brains function at a lower level than average, study says - Business Insider

'Compared with bankers, traders, or salespeople, journalists showed that they were more able to cope with pressure. ', "The results showed that journalists' brains were operating at a lower level than the average population, particularly because of dehydration and the tendency of journalists to self-medicate with alcohol, caffeine, and high-sugar foods."

'The results, however, showed that the journalists were on average no more physically stressed than the average person. '

'The study, led by Tara Swart, a neuroscientist and leadership coach, analysed 40 journalists from newspapers, magazines, broadcast, and online platforms over seven months. '

'The blood tests showed that their levels of cortisol â\x80\x94 known as the stress hormone â\x80\x94 were mostly normal. '

This has been an automated message.
