This research starts from the assumption, widely observed in literature, that stress and distraction involve risks of error, especially in high-density decision making work situations, including Urgent Care -Emergency Departments. Three groups of undergraduates, 20 subjects each, were given fifteen multiple-choice logical questions: one group worked under stress; the second group worked under stress and was distracted twice; the third group worked under conditions that were neither stressful nor disturbing. The highest number of correct answers was generally scored by those working under quiet conditions.

Abstract

This research starts from the assumption, widely observed in literature, that stress and distraction involve risks of error, especially in high-density decision making work situations, including Urgent Care -Emergency Departments. Three groups of undergraduates, 20 subjects each, were given fifteen multiple-choice logical questions: one group worked under stress; the second group worked under stress and was distracted twice; the third group worked under conditions that were neither stressful nor disturbing. The highest number of correct answers was generally scored by those working under quiet conditions.
