I did a thesis on Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) using Cognitive Psychology and Activity Theory as a background. Cognitive Science fascinates me but I have little experience with it. At the moment I'm a PhD student at the IT University of Copenhagen, at the PIT lab studying HCI, but I mainly have a software development background.

In 2007 I got my bachelor degree in applied informatics in Belgium. Immediately after, I started working at the company where I did my internship, AIM Productions. I liked the work and colleagues at the company too much to give up entirely for further studies, so I decided to combine the two. In 2009 I started studying for my master in Game and Media Technology at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands and I graduated in 2012.

Could you at a minimum reference this 'common claim'? Initial research on your own part is also more than welcomed.

comment Is being less emotional a bad thing for motivation?
Welcome to CogSci! This is more a comment than an answer (as are other of your posts which I've since converted to comments). The OP specifically asked for more detailed studies. Once you have 50 reputation you can comment on other people's posts. You can get 50 reputation by getting 5 up votes on an answer (look for other up voted answers to see what is expected, and be sure to read the help section), or 10 up votes on questions.

comment Is there a reason songs don't get stuck in my head?
As @AliceD points out, this question should be formulated in a more scientific/generalizable way. Removing personal references is a good first and easy step.

comment What is the influence of “effort put into pursuing wealth” on happiness?
@Wouter, they are simply the references listed in the publication he links to. No point in repeating 124 references out of context. Without specifying why references are relevant, there is no point in listing them in the first place.

comment What is the influence of “effort put into pursuing wealth” on happiness?
Since you do not mention all of the references listed, could you please take out the ones not pointed to in this post, and remove the others? The full reference list is still available in your link either way.

comment Are there any pragmatic uses of hallucinogens?
Could you please add a full citation, rather than just a link and 'a paper'?

comment What causes someone to frequently see particular patterns of digits when they look at a clock?
@Dr.Bronx It is not only happening to you, ... but you might be the only one who is concerned about it though. As an exercise however, it might be interesting to calculate the percentage of 'special times' you recognize, out of all possible combinations. Is '13:00' special? Is '13:05'?

comment Why does the unilateral 6-OHDA lesion Parkinson's model cause ipsilateral rotations?
@Penguiness If you extend on the link and quote the relevant sections this could be an answer. As you posted it before, it was not, hence I turned it into a comment.

comment Is there a relationship between schizophrenia and genius
Welcome to Cognitive Sciences and Stack Exchange in general Sean! I deleted your comment since it did not have anything to do with this question. Please consult the help section to get a better understanding of how this Q&A site works. We only accept posts/comments which are on-topic. A side-comment linking to your YouTube account is totally irrelevant which I considered self-promotion, hence it got removed.

comment To which degree is Altmann's memory-for-goals model indicative of higher-level multitasking?
@Jeff I believe I actually read that one, but didn't realize Altmann was also one of the authors. Will read it again with more care, thanks!

comment What is the definition of sanity? How can I prove someone either sane or insane?
... and shorter sentences. Don't be afraid of periods. ;p How does the lack of considering this influence the other insightful considerations (by which you refer to the other answers?). Please be more clear, I do not understand your argument (or comment?).

Better reference to what type of multitasking I'm interested in.
