    Multi-taskers are considered as the geniuses created by God of the 21st century. Have you ever wondered what is it that multi-taskers do that you can’t? The answer is nothing. Stanford University researchers have challenged a prevailing myth that multi-taskers are better at processing and organizing information. The people who multi-task the most are the ones who are worst at it and are less able to ignore irrelevant information than people who do less multitasking.

    The survey was conducted on 262 college undergraduates, dividing them into high and low multitasking groups and comparing such things as memory, ability to switch from one task to another and being able to focus on a task. Researchers gave the students a form listing a variety of media such as print, television, computer-based video, music, computer games, telephone voice and text. The researchers had thought that people who do a lot of multitasking would be good at ignoring irrelevant information but it wasn’t so.

    Blah blah blah... so are you multitasker?

    I'm not. I can barely pee and look at my watch... lol

    Multi-tasking? Heavens no, I'm awful that at! :biggrin: I'm more of the type that becomes somewhat obsessively engrossed in a particular activity (the degree of obsessiveness depends on my interest in it of course).

    I like watching the news on tv while on my laptop on SF and on msn, so I guess that's multitasking. :D

    I think it's less multi-tasking more that I can't focus on one thing for very long. :p I always seem to be doing two things at once.
