Good news, doodlers: the next time you are caught scribbling away in a meeting or lecture, explain that you are improving your concentration. A study in UK psychology professor has shown that people who doodle have better recall. A professor asked 40 people to listen to a very dull message and write down names of people mentioned. Half were told to doodle naturally while others simply sat and listened. The doodlers were better at concentrating and recalled information. The reason is because doodling stops daydreaming and helps people pay attention. Daydreaming takes a lot of mental energy, the best thing is to concentrate on a single task, but otherwise try doodling to stop your mind wandering.
I love you too.
