Information Overload

'Information overload' refers to the problem of a cognitive load from information that is too great for a decision-maker to process effectively in the available time. 'Cognitive load' refers to the amount of resources being used to process information by the brain. Also, the stress caused or induced from receiving more information than is necessary or needed to make a decision. The difficulty a person has understanding an issue and effectively making decisions when he/she has too much information. If the problem persists may be called 'Information Fatigue Syndrome'.
