Why care about your processing speed?
The ability to process information quickly and efficiently is pivotal in predicting the success one may have in daily life, such as driving, keeping up with conversations, or classroom learning. For example, a student who is struggling with understanding and reacting to information in the classroom may not get the grades that they aim to acquire. Good processing speed is important for efficient thinking and learning, and is believed to serve as the foundation of many other cognitive abilities. Understanding your brain’s processing speed and adjusting your lifestyle to improve it could be the difference between you achieving your goals and falling short.
