Wasting Time on the Internet Makes You More Focused

Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- According to KABC-TV/DT, scientists at the University of Copenhagen conducted a study on two groups of workers to show that wasting time on the Internet can make you more focused.

The workers watched a video of people passing a ball back and forth. One group was then shown a funny online clip while the other group returned to work.

The study showed that the first group made fewer mistakes when asked to recall the number of times the ball was passed.

The researchers concluded that workers are more motivated and focused when allowed to use the Internet freely.
