Yes I know I keep saying it: Multitasking IS multifailing.
But we simply don't seem to be taking any notice.
Because we like multitasking. It makes us feel as if we are getting a lot of things done and if they are items that don't warrant much in the way of attention that's fine. Up to a point.
The more we try to divide our attention the more scattered we become and the more errors we make.
Many thanks to Allison Morris for providing this wonderful graphic that allows us to test our real ability or not, to multitask.
