Researchers found journalists’ brains just don’t work as well as yours and mine

STUDY INTO THE MENTAL RESILIENCE OF JOURNALISTS Dr Tara Swart May 2017

“The study flatly says journalists have less brain power than others to “regulate emotions, solve complex problems… and think flexibly and creatively,” although study findings say they are no more stressed than the average worker.” 

“That means they understand less about what’s going on than you and I. It also means they are not as competent to figure out what’s wrong – or how to make it right.”
