Further notes on maladaptive strategies
Let us look briefly at some implications of the above for social and organizational life. Krugman’s data confirm the mass of indirect evidence that an habituation process is the primary response to television. Firstly this means that the characteristic slow wave response will not have completely disappeared for some days after the habituation experience. After a night of watching television it is entirely possible that the variety of stimuli you make contact with the next morning will be received and treated by your nervous system as was the information coming through the set. You go to work distracted and you do not perform in a purposeful, analytic manner. There is a spread of effect from leisure into work, school, family life, community, business etc.
