Been feeling so brain dead lately. I notice it most after a few hours of talking on skype. Not that I don't like the people, because I do! And the conversation is fine. But today I just felt so brain dead, I had to excuse myself from the chat. After which I just got up from my chair and walked down the road feeling like a zombie. Everything was so damn beautiful outside though. I wished I could paint what I saw. My sluggishness kind of wore off as I walked and I just kind of let everything around me pour in without trying to shut anything out. I dunno if this has anything to do with being an introvert or maybe having a bit of low latent inhibition...but too much stimulation is really ...a not nice feeling.
I admit that I was trying to do several things at once when I was on skype. My attention was divided over my livestream page, procaster, the conversation, and also trying to find a livestream alternative which was researching justintv, ustream, watchtail, and anything else relevant. Think about holding a conversation while dealing with those things 9_9
What I really can't understand is how some people are able to just shut all this stuff out and multitask seemingly without effort. From what I know though...divided attention usually equals shitty attention over each thing lol, not 100% perfect attention over each thing. I've grown so used to focusing on one thing at a time and giving it most of my attention. But on the flipside I can't listen to music while sleeping, watch a tv show while talking to someone, play music while drawing watching a tv show and chatting, or other things like that. It just makes me think "why the hell would anyone want to torture themselves that way?" But I know I'm thinking in the way I would experience it. To someone else it would probably hit their sweet spot of stimulation. Are the majority of people really like this? Or is this only because I live in America? lol
