Psychiatric Twit of the Week

Apparently a series of tests carried out by Dr Glenn Wilson of the Institute of Psychiatry, University of London, discloses that an average worker’s functioning IQ falls ten points when distracted by ringing telephones and incoming emails.
Oh really? That sounds like the same sort of garbage that predicts that one in five people will suffer from a mental disorder in their lifetime (requiring expensive psychiatric intervention of course).
How low does your IQ have to fall before you can believe, let alone publish that sort of stuff?
And what are the media thinking about when they print such foolishness?
What self-serving, absolute tommy-rot, undiluted nonsense. If psychiatrists were not so dangerous they would be the subject of ridicule.
If their wages depended upon their credibility with the public, rather than government funding, they would be out of business in a week... you can't operate a business from jail.

This is true as when you are distracted by any source so the IQ level decreases because your concentration level decreases and that results in decrease in IQ and to see more details about the study you have to be more specific to the studies you are making in order to gain the best results.
