Good news for those of us who can’t stop looking at pictures of adorable baby animals – scientists in Japan have found that doing so gives us more than just a smile.
In a series of experiments, researches at Hiroshima University had university students look at pictures of baby animals, adult animals and pleasant food before doing various tasks. The students given pictures of baby animals did better than the other students, leading the researches to believe that looking at cute baby animal pictures narrows attentional focus and promotes careful behaviour – boosting productivity.
The Japanese scientists believe that “The Power of Kawaii (cute)” will help you perform better in your day-to-day life, particularly when driving or doing office work.
