Feeling blue can actually help some people to focus، manage their time and better prioritize tasks، new research suggests، AS THE Daily Mail said.

In fact، researchers found being in a good mood may hamper time-keeping and organizational skills.

However، this was only true for extroverts - while introverts ground to a halt when they felt gloomy.
The study، which was carried out by Tara McAuley، a psychology professor at the University of Waterloo، and Martyn S. Gabel، a PhD candidate; explored how 95 people cope with the demands and stresses daily، depending on their mood.

Researchers focused on emotional reactivity - the sensitivity، intensity and duration of our emotional responses associated with our mood. These things are the defining factors that influence our so-called 'effective functioning' (or، abilities to carry out tasks).

They broke down the group into categories of emotional reactivity - high-reactive people and low-reactive people.

High-reactive individuals (i.e. extroverts) are people who have rapid، intense، and enduring emotional responses، while low-reactive people (introverts) are more relaxed.
