How Does This Help Me?

Total Brain, a SonderMind company, offers clinically-validated, mental health assessments like this so you can stay on top of your mental well-being.


What does a high score mean?

People who score highly for Focus are good at sustaining attention over long periods of time to complete a task, even if the task is tedious and repetitive, or mentally strenuous. They are good at controlling what they pay attention to, and are skilled at being able to ignore distractions to instead attend to the task at hand. Because they are able to maintain focus and discipline, they are also more likely to complete things that they start.


What does a low score mean?

People with low scores for Focus may find it difficult to control what they pay attention to. Long or repetitive tasks may be more challenging for them than for others. They are more likely to get distracted several times while completing a task, and it may take a short while for them to realize they have been distracted and need to bring their attention back to the task at hand.

What You Need to Know About Focus


Focus is greatly impacted by other brain capacities, especially stress. Increased levels of stress not only cause us to become more irritable, but also impact our ability to complete tasks and keep interest with a subject over an extended period of time. It’s common for stress to cause people to make more mistakes in their work and sidetrack their goals.

The Total Brain Mental Health Index shows a 48% increase in mistakes made on the Focus Assessment from February 2020 to July 2021, indicating a trend of the pandemic’s effect on people’s stress — as well as their ability to focus.
