Epileptic children scored high on variables of TMS like activity level, intensity, distractibility
The DOTS-R, a 54-item questionnaire, measures 10 adult temperament dimensions: (1) activity level-general; (2) activity level-sleep; (3) approach-withdrawal; (4) flexibility-rigidity; (5) mood quality; (6) rhythmicity-sleep; (7) rhythmicity-eating; (8) rhythmicity-daily habits; (9) distractibility
; and (10) persistence.
During the next 2 weeks she showed a decrease in expansive behaviour grandiose ideation and distractibility
and became more appropriate socially.
My hypothesis was partially supported by the data I obtained as dimensions of intensity, mood, approach, adaptability, and activity showed absolute stability from age 1 year to 2 years and from 2 years old to 3 years, whereas the dimensions of rhythmicity, threshold, persistence, and distractibility
did not show absolute stability as the children got older.
scale included 5 items about beliefs about how distracting phones were (Cronbach's alpha = .76).

Two of the children had negative reactions to the Hemi-Sync music, displaying increased distractibility
"I actually see dance classes and any other body-based learning as an antidote to the distractibility
created by social media," says Anne L.
See, it's that kind of distractibility
that makes Americans virtually ungovernable.
