A recent study reveals that your inability to stay focused from checking emails multiple times, to going through tabs on your browser and checking out hilarious videos on Instagram, is because you are very smart. It's because you’re super smart.

A survey, which looked at the behavior patterns of more than 10,000 workers in 17 countries. The conclusion was that the more brilliant you are, the easier you get distracted.

So, the next time you get distracted, don’t get hard on yourself, you’re just being smart.
