"The term and concept precede the Internet and can be viewed from a library and information sciences perspective or viewed as a psychology phenomenon. In psychology, information overload relates to an overabundance of incoming information into the senses."
"When the individual is plunged into a fast and irregularly changing situation, or a novelty-loaded context ... his predictive accuracy plummets. He can no longer make the reasonably correct assessments on which rational behavior is dependent."
"As the world moves into a new era of glottalization, an increasing number of people are connecting to the Internet to conduct their own research and are given the ability to produce as well as consume the data accessed on an increasing number of websites. Users are now classified as active users because more people in society are participating in the Digital and Information Age. More and more people are considered to be active writers and viewers because of their participation. This flow has created a new life where we are now in danger of becoming dependent on this method of access to information.Therefore we see an information overload from the access to so much information, almost instantaneously, without knowing the validity of the content and the risk of misinformation."
Okay... I think it's pretty clear on what msg I want to convey and where I'm going with this thread... This is no a criticism, only an observation which you can or do not have to accept.
- No action can be made if your mind is in a confused state, overflown with too much information and often of a contradicting nature...
- We are rendered passive observers, while we try to get enough information that we believe it would give us incentive to eventually get moving and reach the objective.
- We argue, and argue over information that was given to us, with other people who also got their information from some outside source.
- We build walls of conflicting viewpoints in our minds and unconsciously give them power to manifest in a situation that directly threatens our ego, all which ofc leads to a failure as we can't connect consciously with something that did not came directly from us but was forced upon.
This is a call for more awareness and direct action. Information cannot and will not stay in the way of doing...
