Think You Can Multitask? Think Again!
A new study shows that real multitaskers only make up 2 percent of the population… and they actually have differently structured brains than the other 98 percent.
According to an article in the UK’s Daily Mail, when doctors scanned the brains the test subjects, the scans showed less activity in the front part of the brain in multitaskers when carrying out several tasks than in monotaskers’ brains just doing one.
Once doc said the downside of being a multitasker is that each task they carry out is done less well than a monotasker’s one.
He says we’re better off doing one task at a time.
