ARTICLE

ABSTRACT

This paper is based on the results of an experiment aimed at studying attention distribution and switching among students using a stationary eye-tracking device. The hypothesis was that the operator’s distraction tolerance should be influenced by his or her general mental strength; temperament, which is a derivative of the characteristics of the nervous system; and the level of intelligence, as a general indicator of the state of the nervous system. In addition, the paper discusses the results of psychological assessment, which are not directly related to the issue of distraction tolerance but indirectly affect it. These results are compared with characteristics that directly affect distraction tolerance.
