If You Think You're Good At Multitasking, You Probably Aren't | MOOC4teachers | Scoop.it

"Multitaskers tend to test high for traits like risk-taking, sensation-seeking and impulsivity. And those very traits interfere with people's ability to stay focused, researchers say. They found that the people who multitasked the most in real life — the impulsive risk-takers — were actually much worse at juggling tasks than people who rarely multitasked. Even worse, these demon multitaskers thought they were terrific at it, though the cold, hard data proved they weren't." | via NPR
