Task Test

Effective Multi-Tasker?

Still thinks you're an effective multi-tasker? Try this simple test:

Time yourself as you create two separate lists of the letters of the alphabet and the numbers one to 26. First, alternate between the two sets of characters: A,1,B,2,C,3 and so on. Second, write out all the letters, then all the numbers.

Mos t people who complete this exercise find that  switching between the numbers and letters takes nearly twice as long- and their work is more likely to be riddled with errors- than set of characters at a time.
