Romeo and Juliet may have been passionate lovers, but they would have made terrible administrative assistants. According to a new study published in the journalMotivation and Emotion, love can make it harder to focus on the tasks in front of you.
In the study, 43 participants who’d become involved in relationships within the past six months were asked to perform a set of tasks in which they had to distinguish relevant and irrelevant information. The researchers found that the more in love the individuals said they were (as evidenced by previously completed surveys) the more difficulty the participants had performing the tasks.
“In our study, we observed that the more intensely in love people are, the less cognitive control they have,” explains study coauthor Sandra Langeslag, PhD, of the University of Maryland. It’s not clear whether it’s love that leads to less cognitive control, or if people with less cognitive control tend to fall more passionately in love, she adds.
Researchers believe the effect decreases over time, especially when it comes to successful lasting relationships—and don’t worry, it’s not because you’re any less in love. “In previous studies about long-term relationships, it has been shown that high levels of cognitive control are important for maintaining long-term relationships,” says Langeslang.
