A new study shows that if you doodle while you listen, you are more likely to retain the boring information the yappers are yakking at you. Yada, yada, yada, yada.
Apparently the doodling activity keeps you focused just enough to deter you from actually wandering off into a daydream in lala land. Thus you hear and retain a bit more of the info.
If this is all true, Badger must never let anything slip by her during a conversation.
But I ask, will doodling while watching a video about counting passes make you pay more attention?
