    Journalists' brains show a lower-than-average level of executive functioning, according to a new study, which means they have a below-average ability to regulate their emotions, suppress biases, solve complex problems, switch between tasks, and show creative and flexible thinking.

    The study, led by Tara Swart, a neuroscientist and leadership coach, analysed 40 journalists from newspapers, magazines, broadcast, and online platforms over seven months. The participants took part in tests related to their lifestyle, health, and behaviour.

    It was launched in association with the London Press Club, and the objective was to determine how journalists can thrive under stress.

    Guess they are hanging around politicians too much and picking up their bad habits.

    LOL - hey let's observe a bunch of drinkers, test them, then claim their IQ is less than.

    Let's see the results of Tara Swart's testing after experiencing; drinking, stress, hours without sleep, etc. Then report on neuroscientists and leadership coaches IQ. LOL
