Taking Photographs Weakens Memories, Psychological Study Finds
Here’s something that both photographers and the typical millennial have to look forward to in old age: Your memory is going to suck because of all the photos you took when you should have been paying attention to what was happening around you.
That’s the upshot of a new psychological study that finds you can have a good photographic record of an event or a good memory, but not both.
Dr. Linda Henkel of Fairfield University in Connecticut conducted the study, in which participants toured a campus art museum. Some were assigned to take photos; others were asked to simply remember what they saw. Subjects were tested on their memories of the museum a day later.
Those who took photos fared significantly worse at correctly identifying items from the museum, and recalled fewer details of those they did remember.
Socially awkward penguin in action.
It just swims away in abject horror. SHIT SHIT SHIT I FUCKED IT UP SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING
