Multitasking is Bad For You

Over the past few years, I’ve told many of my friends not to multi-task. I just don’t think it’s nice to split your focus. It’s especially insulting when they go, “A-huh” to everything you say on the phone while they were busy doing something else.

Most are proud of their glorified God given talent, but that won’t stand for long.

Compared with those who rarely used more than one type of media at a time, heavy multitaskers had slower response times, most often because they were more easily distracted by irrelevant information, and because they retained that useless information in their short-term memory. CNN

Multi-tasker tends to retain short-term memory and affects their ability to focus … they aren’t sure if it’s reversible.

I hate to break to you, but I told you so.

ps: Still angry at someone. If you want to learn something, open your heart and listen. Kalau bodoh sombong, sampai bile takkan masuk ilmu.


I am web developer, who's main concern is to save the trees. Nonetheless

  15. hohoho…bende multi-task yg paling slalu aku buat is when i was busy doing sthng & had to call someone, i just dialed the number and wait till that person picked up the phone..but in the end i often forget that i had actually made the call & the person at the other end of the line was like, “hello!hello!Muni!Muni…ko salah tekan ke ape?”..
    Now, some of my friends who used to get that from me already know that I didn’t mistakenly dialed their number and they will say,”ko slalu camtuh..”

  16. when i resigned my boss had regretted it and had said its hard to find someone with versatility and can do everything. that is when i knew i had made the right decision to resign :)). i just can do the versatility aka multitask anymore. just so damn hard to focus.
