Potential Benefits

While having a low capacity for simple attention can sometimes be seen as a disadvantage in the workplace, it can also have some benefits. For example, people with low capacity for simple attention might be better at seeing the big picture of things and not get stuck in minor details. It could also mean that they have an easier time to switch between tasks, that opens for an increased ability to multitask and adapt to changing situations. A more divided attention and with less constraints of details may, additionally, be a foundation for more creativity and thinking outside the box. Finally, a low capacity for attention and details may mean less perception of, and focus on, challenges, and could therefore lead to them to be more comfortable with taking risks and trying new things.
