Self Monitoring Compartmentalization and Dual N-Back Training

About 30 sessions into my Dual N-Back training practice I realized an interesting personal development take away, that a cognitive psychologist would describe as domain-general, meaning that it has transfer effects that influence my life when I’m not playing the Dual N-Back game.

  • But it was my best friend’s birthday party.
  • Judge yourself for screwing up and thinking while you are supposed to be meditating (thinking about nothing) — God, I suck at meditating!

The thought is compartmentalized and I continue doing whatever I’m doing undistracted.
