Can’T See the Forest For the Trees? Media Multitasking Leads to Local Perceptual Processing and Concrete Construals in Subsequent Tasks

In Study 2, behaviors were rated more concretely after multitasking with media. Study 3 confirmed that switching between different information streams likely drives these effects.
