Occupational stress in human computer interaction. (1/23)

There have been a variety of research approaches that have examined the stress issues related to human computer interaction including laboratory studies, cross-sectional surveys, longitudinal case studies and intervention studies. A critical review of these studies indicates that there are important physiological, biochemical, somatic and psychological indicators of stress that are related to work activities where human computer interaction occurs. Many of the stressors of human computer interaction at work are similar to those stressors that have historically been observed in other automated jobs. These include high workload, high work pressure, diminished job control, inadequate employee training to use new technology, monotonous tasks, por supervisory relations, and fear for job security. New stressors have emerged that can be tied primarily to human computer interaction. These include technology breakdowns, technology slowdowns, and electronic performance monitoring. The effects of the stress of human computer interaction in the workplace are increased physiological arousal; somatic complaints, especially of the musculoskeletal system; mood disturbances, particularly anxiety, fear and anger; and diminished quality of working life, such as reduced job satisfaction. Interventions to reduce the stress of computer technology have included improved technology implementation approaches and increased employee participation in implementation. Recommendations for ways to reduce the stress of human computer interaction at work are presented. These include proper ergonomic conditions, increased organizational support, improved job content, proper workload to decrease work pressure, and enhanced opportunities for social support. A model approach to the design of human computer interaction at work that focuses on the system "balance" is proposed.  (+info)

Effects of VDT tasks with a bright display at night on melatonin, core temperature, heart rate, and sleepiness. (2/23)

The effects of performing video display terminal (VDT) tasks with a bright display (BD) at night on nocturnal salivary melatonin concentration, rectal temperature, heart rate, and sleepiness were examined. Seven healthy male adults performed exciting VDT tasks with a BD and a dark display (DD) and boring VDT tasks with a BD and a DD from 2300 to 0200. The light intensities of the BD and DD were 45 and 15 lx at each subject's eye level, respectively. The exciting VDT task with both BD and DD significantly suppressed the nocturnal decrease in rectal temperature and heart rate and the nocturnal increase in sleepiness. The BD significantly suppressed the nocturnal decrease in rectal temperature during both exciting and boring VDT tasks. The nocturnal salivary melatonin concentration was significantly suppressed by the combination of the exciting task and BD. The results suggest that performing an exciting VDT task with a BD suppresses the nocturnal changes in melatonin concentration and other physiological indicators of human biological clocks.  (+info)

Incidence of and risk factors for nodding off at scientific sessions. (3/23)

We conducted a surreptitious, prospective, cohort study to explore how often physicians nod off during scientific meetings and to examine risk factors for nodding off. After counting the number of heads falling forward during 2 days of lectures, we calculated the incidence density curves for nodding-off episodes per lecture (NOELs) and assessed risk factors using logistic regression analysis. In this article we report our eye-opening results and suggest ways speakers can try to avoid losing their audience.  (+info)

Nodding and napping in medical lectures: an instructive systematic review. (4/23)

A comprehensive, international systematic review, spanning more than 100 years of data collection, suggests that soporific lectures at medical meetings are common, annoying and persistent. Low lights and boring material are prominent risk factors for nodding off during presentations. Extreme remedial measures are warranted.  (+info)

Behavioural reactivation and subjective assessment of the state of vigilance--application to simulated car driving. (5/23)

The frequency of some behaviour (such as self-centred gestures) increases during a task that leads to the occurrence of low-vigilance episodes. These gestures can be useful in stimulating oneself. A study carried out in 20 adults has enabled us to state that motor activity (recorded with an actimeter) increases with the duration of a monotonous driving task and sleep deprivation. The analysis of the scores recorded using the Karolinska Sleepiness Scale has shown that drivers can assess the deterioration of their state of vigilance according to the actual sleep preceding the driving test. Finally, the joint analysis of the subjective and objective data revealed a co-variation of these two types of indices. We discuss the stimulatory function of the motor activity in a task leading to the occurrence of low-vigilance episodes by investigating, among other things, the use, conscious or not, of this type of activity.  (+info)

Determinants of daily smoking in Turkish young adults in the Netherlands. (6/23)

BACKGROUND: As little is known about the determinants of smoking in large ethnic minorities in the Netherlands and other Western European countries, we studied the determinants of smoking young adult offspring of Turkish migrants to the Netherlands. METHODS: Cross-sectional survey of 439 Turkish adults (18-28 y) in 2003. Smokers were compared with never smokers for five groups of determinants: demographic and socioeconomic factors, behavioral and emotional problems, psychosocial factors, and cultural factors. Associations were measured by prevalence rate ratios. RESULTS: Prevalences for men were 51% for daily smoking, 12% for former smoking, and 38% for never smoking. For women they were 44%, 11%, and 47%, respectively. Without adjustment for other determinants, higher prevalence was associated with: emotional problems, boredom, life events, and being male; and, specifically among women, with low self-esteem and having children. The strongest determinants of daily smoking In multivariate models were alcohol use and demographic and socio-economic factors. Of the cultural factors only strong Muslim identification was associated with lower smoking prevalence. CONCLUSION: The high prevalence of smoking warrants action. Many of the well-known determinants of smoking in Western countries were also important among young adults from ethnic minorities. Women with children and people of a low educational level deserve special attention.  (+info)

Increases in impulsivity following smoking abstinence are related to baseline nicotine intake and boredom susceptibility. (7/23)

Trait impulsivity and response inhibition have been shown to be related to smoking behavior. One measure of response inhibition - antisaccade performance, or the ability to inhibit looking at a novel stimulus - has been shown to be worsened by smoking abstinence, improved by nicotine administration and predictive of smoking cessation outcomes. However, relations between antisaccade performance and measures of trait impulsivity have not been extensively evaluated in smokers. In the present study, twelve dependent smokers (n=12) completed an eye tracking task following smoking as usual and overnight abstinence; and they completed baseline measures of trait impulsivity, smoking history and provided biological samples. As expected, overnight abstinence significantly increased antisaccade errors (p<0.002) while having no effect on prosaccade performance. Abstinence-induced increases in antisaccade errors were positively correlated with baseline plasma cotinine and Sensation Seeking Scale Boredom Susceptibility, and negatively correlated with IQ. These results suggest that smoking abstinence significantly increases errors of response inhibition and that the magnitude of this increase is related to trait impulsivity and nicotine intake variables.  (+info)

A comparison of three vulnerability models for the onset of substance use in a high-risk sample. (8/23)

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this prospective study was to compare the following three vulnerability models for early-onset substance use in a high-risk sample: the deviance proneness model, the negative affect regulation model, and a comprehensive model including both delinquency and negative affect. METHOD: The sample included 249 15- to 19-year-old adolescents (57% children of alcoholics) and their fathers, all of whom were seen at follow-up 5 years later. At both times of measurement, participants completed a clinical psychiatric interview and a battery of self-report questionnaires assessing temperament, negative affect, delinquency, and substance use. RESULTS: Although all of the models fit the data well, the deviance proneness model was parsimonious and provided the best fit. Delinquency played a significant mediating role, whereas negative affect did not. Moreover, negative affect and delinquency were not significantly related to one another. CONCLUSIONS: Results from this study suggest that the deviance proneness model may be a more useful theoretical framework than the negative affect regulation model or a comprehensive model when examining the onset of substance use, particularly in a high-risk sample.  (+info)

Boredom comes in many forms. Sometimes children with learning disabilities are bored because they have nothing to do. Other times, children with learning disabilities are bored because they arent engaged in the activity that they are expected to participate in..

Most people try to avoid boredom. But is it good to never be bored? Dr. Mark Hawkins doesnt think so… Learn why boredom is actually healthy and valuable.
Across the Western humanities, boredom has typically been depicted as an individual failing. The 19th century German pessimist Arthur Schopenhauer defined boredom as the sensation of the emptiness of existence. French philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre called it a leprosy of the soul.. But researchers studying boredom say it merits a more neutral reading. That feeling of having nothing to do - what Russian author Leo Tolstoy called the desire for desires - serves as a signal, a call to the body to shift gears, goes the current thinking.. Boredom is a sign that youre not meaningfully engaged in the world, says social psychologist Erin Westgate of the University of Florida in Gainesville. Researchers, including Westgate, have identified two paths to boredom: a loss of focus or a loss of meaning.. Certainly, many of us have lost the focus, or mental acuity, of the Before Times, Westgate says. In addition to a deadly pandemic that has brought city shutdowns and remote schooling, there have been ...
The research surveyed 2,067 adults from across Britain, and reveals that 27 percent of respondents feel they have been eating less healthily during lockdown, 50 percent of people state their habits have not changed and 22 percent say they have been eating more healthily than usual.. The survey looked at the reasons why those who say they are eating less healthily are doing so and, as well as boredom, stress and lack of motivation, 30 percent of people claim that not being able to go to the supermarket as often is making it difficult for them to eat healthily.. The research has been conducted in parallel with the launch of BNF Healthy Eating Week @ Home, a virtual event which aims to encourage people of all ages to take part in a range of key health challenges based on healthy eating, wellbeing and the benefits of physical activity, as well as trying out new healthy recipe ideas.. Analysing how our cooking and eating habits have changed since the lockdown began, the research suggests that 17 ...

On the whole a society always produces more than is necessary for its survival; it has a surplus at its disposal. It is precisely the use it makes of this surplus that determines it. So writes the rogue Surrealist Georges Bataille. This surplus may be gathered up and dispersed in spiritual quests or in making life over as a work of art. It can be squandered on bombs. Or it can be invested along the lines of strategic expansion or economic accumulation. This laying down of new lines, building from topic to topography to topology, only increases the surplus, and postpones and multiplies the problem: What to do with the idle capacities of a people? What to do with energies that so easily spill over into riot or revolt? Whats the good? Boredom is the ambivalent gift of the surplus. Boredom arises out of the absence of necessity, of a yes, a no, a straight line. Boredom demands new necessities, and if not granted them - produces its own. History is a struggle to wrest necessity from boredom. In ...
The two emotions, loneliness and boredom, are closely allied. They are also both characteristically modern. The Oxford English Dictionarys earliest citations of either word, at least in the contemporary sense, date from the 19th century ... Loneliness is not the absence of company, it is grief over that absence. The lost sheep is lonely; the shepherd is not lonely. But the Internet is as powerful a machine for the production of loneliness as television is for the manufacture of boredom. If six hours of television a day creates the aptitude for boredom, the inability to sit still, a hundred text messages a day creates the aptitude for loneliness, the inability to be by yourself. Some degree of boredom and loneliness is to be expected, especially among young people, given the way our human environment has been attenuated. But technology amplifies those tendencies. You could call your schoolmates when I was a teenager, but you couldnt call them 100 times a day. You could get together with your ...

What is boredom? To answer the question of boredom, we need to first consider what is missing in a child who repeatedly tells us they are bored. A child over the age of three should ideally show signs of wanting to do it myself with budding autonomy and independence becoming evident. They should also indicate an interest in learning about new and unknown things.. Kids who are thriving will often be able to shift into play or creative solitude when they are apart from their adults. Signs of vitality include having ones own ideas, initiative, intentions, and interests. Children should be known for their imagination and curiosity, all of which go missing when a child is characteristically bored.. According to Gordon Neufeld, the problem with kids who are bored is one of emergent energy (5). The bias that drives a child to become their own separate person or independent being is missing or subdued. The word boredom comes from the word to bore, indicating an internal void where energy should be ...
relationships that grow over time are built on a solid foundation of sensual, erotic love that includes variety. In other words: nobody gets bored!. Boredom is the enemy. Bedroom boredom crushes relationships. And boredom stems from fear. Fear of speaking up for what you want. But most people dont have a clue about how to communicate their desires in the bedroom.. The sexual soulmate pact is a simple feedback loop you set up with your lover. This allows you to guide each other toward more pleasure during lovemaking. I say specific because an agreement thats vague is no better than feeling your way along without knowing how youre doing. Or, as is common among us women, not knowing what we want, just knowing were not getting it. Said simply: the feedback loop is the best way to make sure shes happy. You know what they say: When Mamas happy, everybodys happy!. Dont worry, the Sexual Soulmate Pact isnt about processing your feelings. You dont even have to talk about the feedback ...

Learning how to enter into the flow has the potential to immediately improve the quality of your life and build your mind power. Csikszentmihalyi found that being in the flow actually increases your brain power, and that the longer you remain in flow, the more complex your mind power becomes.. The easiest way to understand how flow increases mind power is this: When you perform a task that is too easy, your mind wanders from your work, and you have low mental focus. When something is overwhelmingly too difficult, on the other hand, anxiety and frustration set in.. Neither boredom nor anxiety lead to good mental focus.. Most often we move in and out of flow without realizing it. Any stimulating activity that completely fills your conscious attention can put you there. But the minute you feel worry, boredom or insecurity creeping in, you are out of the flow.. Heres a reliable step-by-step method to create a state of flow in your life:. Step 1. View your task as a game. Like any serious game, ...
One of the reasons why many people turn to substance abuse in the beginning is that they feel bored. This is an emotion where people do not experience anything of interest in their surroundings. It is an uncomfortable mind frame that most people will experience from time to time. Those who experience too much boredom may complain that their life is unsatisfying. It opens the door for all sorts of negative thinking. The individual may begin to remember their years of substance abuse as a time of great excitement.. Those who give up an addiction will suddenly have plenty of time on their hands. This is because so much of the life of an addict is focused around obtaining and using their drug of choice. When these people become sober they will have huge gaps in their day with nothing to do. It is therefore vital that they find new things to do or else they risk experiencing boredom. The good news is that those who have been sober for a reasonable amount of time will often complain that they just do ...
The key to being interesting is to do, see, read, view, and think about interesting things. Interests are subjective, of course, but the quality of being interesting relates to the degree to which those around you enjoy being around you. This has nothing to do with IQ. Were human beings who interact with the world, and this will inevitably result in some opinions, perceptions, and/or ideas. You dont need a degree in English to chat about books, just like you dont need a PhD in film studies to see that RuPauls Drag Race is the most radical form of television available nowadays. The philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer said that life swings like a pendulum backward and forward between pain and boredom. We all hate both, but pain is more or less out of our hands, whereas boredom can be controlled by cultivating yourself to be interesting and to be interested in others. So, you need to have an interest or a passion, and preferably lots of them. Youll be really interesting to someone if you can ...
A shadowy figure broke into my house, into my room, into my dreams. In that way dreams have of telling us whats going on I knew he was a burglar but he didnt seem interested in burgling anything. All he did was cut me. Over and over he cut me: slices to my ears, stabs on my face, cuts to my arms and hands… painful small cuts, the kind that, added up to 10,000, cause death. Oh, those cuts. They hurt. I screamed.. The scream woke me up. I shuddered, shook my head at the horror of the nightmare and fell back into sleep - and back into the dream.. The cutting man was still there. Not a gloater, he was nothing like Hollywood Evil. Just a man with a grim task to do. His knife looked like a scalpel, blood ran from my cuts. Why was he doing this? Why didnt I fight back? If he was the thief the dream insisted he was, why didnt he just take something and go?. I woke up so quickly at my second scream the sound was still in my room. I was sweating, my heart raced. The cuts burned but I couldnt see ...
It is vital that individuals in recovery find new interests to fill up their time. These can be activities that they once enjoyed prior to becoming addicted or they can be something completely new. These new interests can provide real pleasure and give life purpose. The individual will usually be surprised that there are so many exciting choices available in recovery. They can even start to complain that there are not enough hours in the day to do all the things they want to do, and can now do once they are free from addiction.. A lack of willingness to find new interests in recovery is a bad omen. It could mean that the individual is on the path to relapse. Trying new things can be a bit intimidating, but without a willingness to do this, there is real danger of a return to old behaviors. This is why addiction therapists will spend a lot of time encouraging the client to find things to do with their time.. ...

Everyone has those Facebook friends who post almost everyday with new status updates and filtered selfies. Im not opposed to updating social media, but Im always curious about the other half of Facebook who are media silent. Could it be that those people are living busier, more adventurous lives than the people who are online more often? Or are they just finding more innovative ways to entertain themselves?. Some researchers and authors, like Graham Linehan, argue that while the internet successfully reduces boredom, the constant stream of information leaves no room for innovative or creative thinking. Linehan says, I have to use all these programs that cut off the internet, force me to be bored, because being bored is an essential part of writing, and the internet has made it very hard to be bored.. Last year psychologists at the University of Central Lancashire conducted an experiment to study boredom and creativity. Two groups were picked for the study. One group was given a tedious task ...

My husband and I stayed a couple of nights in Asheville, an oasis in the desert, in terms of being a bastion of progressivism in an otherwise conservative area. It also seemed to be one of the few places with a thriving economy. The rest of the region is horribly depressed right now, and I dont mean emotionally (although that may in fact be the case). Another area that seemed to be doing all right for itself was Cherokee, located in the Cherokee Indian Reservation. I only say that because my memories of Cherokee date from nearly twenty years ago when we lived in Charlotte. The only word that comes to mind when I think about the town back then is crummy. The town is still crummy, but maybe not as much as it was. Its still littered with more moccasin stores than you can shake a stick at, although we did see one old guy, dressed in ...

Before I started writing full-time, I had a corporate sales job. I sat in a cubicle for eight hours a day, managing the delivery of products that I would never use to places that I would never visit. The job was routinized. There were specific tasks that needed to be done in a certain way, and at a certain time every day. There was comfort in always knowing what was expected. But with that comfort came boredom, and with that boredom came frustration, and before long, those cubicle walls started to close in.. Left unchecked, that frustration can become poisonous to company morale; so most businesses try to find ways to break the monotony. At this company, that came in the form of an annual talent show. Every year, for one day, the corporate drones transformed into dancers, singers, magicians, and comedians. It was a chance to learn a lot about people I saw every day, but never spoke to. The quiet nerd from IT who wouldnt make eye contact with girls in the hall wrote moody guitar rock. The mousy ...
Due to the typical calendar year of school, and the nature of seasons, parents and children go through cycles of excitement, hope, boredom, and discouragement. However, most of these individuals are not aware that these cycles are normal and predictable. Let me be a bit more specific. At the start of the school year, most parents and children are excited for the year to begin. New clothes are bought, new teachers are met, a new binder is organized, and friends whom you have not seen for the entire summer are seen again. However, after period of time, the reality of the school year sets in. The newness wears off. Some boredom and discouragement sets in. This happens between the middle of October until the holidays. The holidays give a positive boost to many people because there are things to look forward to during the holiday break. In January, most children and parents are excited for school to begin. However, they are probably not as excited before. From the latter part of January until spring ...

Thanks to my menial day job, I spend a lot of time being bored. What I didnt know was that being bored can kill you, according to a study from the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health at University College London. A longitudinal study was made of over 7,500 civil servants, ages 35-55, who were followed over 25 years. As it turns out, those who were bored more often were over 40 percent more likely to end up dead than those who werent bored.. Said Martin Shipley, one of the co-writers, The findings on heart disease show there was sufficient evidence to say there is a link with boredom. It is important that people who have dull jobs find outside interests to keep boredom at bay, rather than turn to drinking or smoking.. So, the next time youre sitting bored at work, pick up that pen and start spinning it. Better yet, start browsing through the archives of PopFi and keep yourself entertained so you dont end up dead!

Tips for passing the time when stuck in a flood zone. No one likes being stuck in one place. Being restricted on what you can and cannot do is never fun. Due to the flood the people who are unable to leave Bloomsburg are stuck in their houses or dorms with limited places and things to do. Below is a list to help you pass the time until the water recedes!. 1) First things first, get ahead of the game and catch up on the first week of reading for classes that you have been avoiding.. 2.) Next, take the time you have now to do some housecleaning. Straighten the living room or common area if you are in a dorm and make your bed. This will kill time and if you are stuck in one place for days a clean room will help your sanity.. 3.) When you can read no longer and your room is clean (if youre lucky enough to have power), pop in a funny movie to kill an hour or two to make you smile. After all, they say laughter is the best medicine.. 4.) If youre not lucky enough to have power grab that deck of cards ...
Veritas Vision A bit of boredom and a bit of spice marked Veritas CEO Gary Blooms opening speech here at the Veritas Vision conference.. The boredom charge may come off harsh, but the accusation is most certainly apt as Bloom spoke with massive Utility Now signs surrounding him on stage. The utility computing message is all well and good, but you have to wonder if its time hasnt passed.. For years, companies such as IBM, EMC, HP and Sun Microsystems have littered the collective mind of the IT industry with fanciful analogies comparing the delivery of processing power or storage with turning on a faucet and watching water trickle out. And here, about thirty minutes into Blooms keynote, the exec had the audacity to keep the water dream alive, walking the Veritas audience through the inner-workings of water delivery systems and all of their glory. Seriously, he did.. Given this staid performance, you might think Bloom hasnt heard the fluff charges surrounding utility computing. Not ...
