“people who are regularly bombarded with several streams of electronic information do not pay attention, control their memory or switch from one job to another as well as those who prefer to complete one task at a time,”

Yeah, but is that causal or correlative? That is, do people who prefer to be multitaskers get easily distracted, or is the fact that they are easily distracted make them multitaskers?

Michael W. Kruse

Travis, good point. We'll make social scientist of you yet.

Ted M. Gossard

Interesting. I guess I feel better, overall, though the more I think about it, maybe not! :) I wonder if our culture is so multi-task oriented, that's it well impossible to completely escape it.

Michael W. Kruse

All I know is that the article helps me feel more self-righteous about not being a multi-tasker. :-)

David Ker

Thanks for this, Michael. I really need to do a better job of monotasking. I see a difference between multitasking and managing. A teacher or boss or project leader has to be somewhat reactionary. However we can do ourselves a lot of good by eliminating distractions and focusing.
