appsent-minded

Definition


appsent-minded adj; absent minded, because of excessive multitasking between apps on phone, pc and other gadgets, causing ‘stimulation overload’, which further pushes the brain into overdrive making one to not only forget how to talk and focus but no longer able to enjoy the more simple organic activities in life such as visiting friends in person or just calling them to talk instead of text

appsent-minded; to pretend to pay attention to someone while holding a hand phone, texting or waiting for a text,  rather than e.g, holding her hand, looking into her eyes, sincerely listening and hearing what she is trying to communicate to you

appsent-minded; consumate multitasker, which really only amounts to just, ‘splitting one’s own brain’ into what researchers have called, “spotlights”, making the brain frantically switch back and forth, focusing only a few seconds on  each activity, thus being less productive

appsent-minded; multitasker, considered to be very bad because they are less productive and skills like filtering out irrelivent information declines

 

 

Example use


waz up my main man??

Ahh, not much, why did you want to meet and why are you talking so strange?

Well, I thought we should meet cause its been so long(about 6 months) since ive used my vocal cords, almost forgot how to talk, kinda forgot what my best friend and business partner looked like, and im multitasking so much, im becoming, “appsent-minded”, im actually seeing the spotlights in my splitted brain, like a fire-pinball game… We’re not accomplishing much because were relying more on machines than our own brain power which is making us less productive, dumb  and numb to the world around us…

So what else is on your mind?

 

Word came from
