Closing your eyes helps you remember things.
An article written by Psychology Today titled Why Do You Close Your Eyes to Remember
does a very good job explaining why closing your eyes helps you remember things better.
It says that closing your eyes prevents you from distractions that occupy your visual senses.
It seems that your brain has a limited capacity when it comes to processing information related to specific senses.
For example, you are only able to process so much visual information at once.
When you ask somebody to recall a visual object,
chances are they're going to close their eyes or look up.
This helps minimalize visual distractions.
It also appears that depending on what we're trying to remember,
sound, sight, smell, taste, or touch,
closing off distractions to those senses helps you remember better.
We already used vision as an example.
For sound, the article also touches upon a study that
shows that blocking out sound related distractions when trying to remember a sound
helps improve a call.
At this point, this logic seems to make sense
and perhaps truly applies to the other senses as well.
I also remember as a part of a memory lab that I volunteered for.
My supervisor had me research a little about memory and sensory processing.
I forgot the name of the concept of the model.
But it basically says that when you multitask you aren't actually multitasking.
You are essentially dividing up your attention or resources to various tasks.
This also means that when you multitask,
your attention on each task aren't at their 100%.
It supports the idea that our brains has a limited capacity when it comes to dealing with various senses.
Another key point of the model was that
if you perform two tasks that require the same sensory input and output
you're more likely to divide up the resources for those activities.
You're also more likely to have difficulties performing two or more tasks that require the same sense.

影片簡介

展開內容
你是不是也像小 V 一樣,要回想一件事情,常常得用力閉眼睛才想得起來?到底為什麼人會有這樣的反應呢?一起來了解原因吧!


1occupy 0:23
occupy 的中文是「佔領」、「佔據」,如 2011 年「佔領華爾街事件」的英文就是 Occupy Wall Street。occupy 也有「使...忙碌」的意思,一起看看例句:
He occupied himself with work to get over a breakup.
他讓自己忙於工作以忘卻分手之苦。


2prevent 0:23
prevent 是動詞,中文是「預防」。prevent A from B 有「阻止 A 做 B」或「讓 A 免於 B 」的意思,from 後面可接名詞或動名詞,
Following traffic regulations can prevent accidents from happening.
遵循交通規則可以預防發生意外。

Washing your hands before eating is a good way to prevent you from getting sick.
飯前洗手是防止疾病傳播的一種好方法。

3apply to 1:14
apply 的中文是「應用」,影片中 apply to 的用法表「適用於...」,如條約所適用的對象,或管轄適用的範圍等等。另外,apply to 也有「塗抹」意思,如塗抹乳液或藥品。

4multitask 1:28
multitasking 是名詞,意思是「多重任務處理」。字首 multi- 表示「多」, task 則是「工作」。這個字原指電腦的多工處理,後來引申有「一心多用」,「同時進行數件不同的事情」的意思。 以 multi- 為字首的單字還有: multilingual 會說多種語言的、multicultural 多元文化的,以及 multifunctional 多功能的...等。
Amy impressed her boss with her mulitasking skills.
Amy 一次能夠處理多件事情的能力讓老闆印象深刻。

5divide 1:32
divide 的中文是「劃分」、「分離」,影片中 divide something up... 指「將某事拆分成...」。另外 divide 是數學上除法的英文 divide A by B 表示「除以」;divide B into A,則為「除」。如 Divide 6 by 2 is 3. (6 除以 2 等於 3) 和 Divide 2 into 6 is 3. (2 除 6 等於 3)。
The students divided up the award bonus among themselves.
學生們平分比賽得來的獎金。


原來如此!閉眼睛是為了隔絕外界干擾,以更專注於思考。下次想事情的時候,不妨留意自己有沒有閉眼睛,如果沒有這麼做的話還想得起來嗎?
