Journalists drink too much, are bad at managing emotions and operate below average

Journalists drink too much, are bad at managing emotions, and operate at a lower level than average, according to a new study

Journalists’ brains show a lower-than-average level of executive functioning, according to a new study, which means they have a below-average ability to regulate their emotions, suppress biases, solve complex problems, switch between tasks, and show creative and flexible thinking.

The study, led by Tara Swart, a neuroscientist and leadership coach, analysed 40 journalists from newspapers, magazines, broadcast, and online platforms over seven months. The participants took part in simple tests related to their lifestyle, health, and behaviour.

It was launched in association with the London Press Club, and the objective was to determine how journalists can thrive under stress.

Each subject completed a blood test, wore a heart-rate monitor for three days, kept a food and drink diary for a week, and completed a brain profile questionnaire.

The results showed that journalists’ brains were operating at a lower level than the average population, particularly because of dehydration and the tendency of journalists to self-medicate with alcohol, caffeine, and high-sugar foods.

Forty-one percent of the subjects said they drank 18 or more units of alcohol a week, which is four units above the recommended weekly allowance. Less than 5% drank the recommended amount of water.

We needed an academic study to prove this?

Where is the forum with the guys who care for that?

Best results in tennis in this year:
Iguana on court at match from Haas in Miami
Wawrinka grilling Mugray in Paris
Haas destroying peak Fraud in my city

A badrep a day, keeps the doctor away

Tennis is shit.
Football is shit too.

So, I shouldn't believe this piece of journalism?

Although it aligns with what I think of journalism (confirmation bias here), by the description it looks like a pretty crappy study
