We touched on the subject of Limited Capacity in class, where multitasking was briefly mentioned. Throughout the years I have been in college, I have heard various Professors say multitasking is impossible. I would respond with absolute disagreement because I considered that being able to pick-up the phone, look up names and transfer calls, as well as placing facilities request on an online system and also answering emails and completing administrative projects and greeting, seating and announcing guests in a close range of time was multitasking and also I thought that my brain looked as cool as that Octopus up there. However, I have learned that multitasking may actually be frying my neurons, so I have decided to quit my job! (Just kidding!)
Multitasking is the ability to perform various tasks at once – each one effectively. 98% of us are unable to do that and this is why multitasking is considered almost impossible by many. This humor-filled awesome blog article from the “Psychology Today” magazine helps us understand what “Supertaskers” are and the benefits of being a “monotasker”.
