Read it and gloat. Last week, researchers at Stanford University
published a study showing that the most persistent multitaskers perform
poorly in a variety of tasks:
- They don’t focus as well as
- They’re more distractible.
- They’re weaker at shifting from one task to another and at
- They are, as a matter of fact, worse at multitasking than
people who don’t ordinarily multitask.
You know what this means. This means that: the people around you:
- the husband who’s tapping the
computer keys during an important phone conversation with you, -
the SUV driver with the grande latte and the cellphone,
- the dinner companion with the roving eye and twitching
thumbs — are not only irritating,
- they are (let’s not be faint-hearted) incompetent.
But, wait. Should it be breaking news that a single person can’t juggle
knives and explain quantum physics while polishing off an artichoke?
Breaking news and a shock to the researchers themselves, as it turns
Originally, the team of researchers, whose findings are published in the
August 24, 2009 issue of the Proceedings of the National
Academy of Sciences, were trying to find out what unusual
cognitive gifts multitaskers possessed that made them so successful at
They’re still looking. “Multitaskers
were just lousy at everything,” said Clifford I. Nass, a
professor of communication at Stanford and one of the study’s
“It was a complete and total shock to me.”
Initially suspecting that multitaskers possessed some rare and enviable
qualities that helped them process simultaneous channels of information,
Nass had been “in awe of them,” he said, acknowledging that he himself
is “dreadful” at multi-tasking.
“I was sure they had some secret ability. But it turns out that high
multitaskers are suckers for irrelevancy.”
The study tested 100 college students rated high or low multitaskers.
Experimenters monitored the students’ focus, memory and distractibility
with a series of electronic images of different-coloured shapes, letters
and numbers, found only disadvantages.
Eyal Ophir, the study’s lead investigator and a researcher at Stanford’s
Communication Between Humans and Interactive Media Lab, said: “We kept
looking for multitaskers’ advantages in this study.
But we kept finding only disadvantages. We thought multitaskers were
very much in control of information. It turns out they were just getting
it all confused.”
The study’s results were so strong and unexpected that the researchers
are planning a series of follow-up experiments.
“It keeps me up late at
night,” Nass said. “I worry about both the short-term and long-term
effects of multi-tasking.
We’re going to be testing the heck out of high
and low multitaskers.”
To the rest of the world, though, the people who trudge through life
excited and unnerved by an occasional cellphone call while walking or
watching the sun set (isn’t that multitasking?), the study’s findings
aren’t quite so shocking.
A constant state of stress; deluges of
ever-changing information; the frenzied, nanosecond-fast hustle and
bustle — this is bad for you?
It’s surprising and it’s news that it’s
bad for you?
Before they lie down to take a well-deserved and
uninterrupted nap, the trudgers of the world would like to say, “We told
Still, their sad sense of inferiority to the flash and dash of
multitaskers lingers and may even interfere with a good sleep.
“The core of the problem,” Nass said, is that the multitaskers “think
they’re great at what they do, and they’ve convinced everybody else
they’re good at it, too.”
Yes, they have.
Take, for example, Robert Leleux, a New York writer and
gentle soul who still struggles with a rotary phone.
“My entire life, I’ve been so thoroughly cowed by multitaskers,” said
Leleux, author of The Memoirs of a Beautiful Boy. “I find it impossible
to believe they’re not superior to me. This study is like catnip! It
validates my entire life.”
As a child, Leleux recalls, his uni-tasking took a culinary turn. When
eating, he could concentrate only on one food at a time.
Even with scientific validation at his fingertips, Leleux frets that the
Stanford study may have been done “by a bitter
uni-tasker like me who
wants to validate his own existence.”

function of the brain is to generate behaviors that promote the welfare

by causing secretion of chemicals such as hormones.

Although humans realize what everyday experiences are, consciousness
refuses to be defined, philosophers note.

aware of at a given moment forms part of our consciousness,
making conscious experience at once the most familiar and most
mysterious aspect of our lives"-
Schneider and Velmans, 2007
medicine (e.g. anaesthesiology) is simply regarded as wakefulness and is
assessed by observing a patient's alertness and responsiveness.
Consciousness in psychology and philosophy has four characteristics:
subjectivity, change, continuity and selectivity. Intentionality or
aboutness - that consciousness is about something - has also been
suggested by philosopher
However, within the philosophy of mind there is no consensus on whether
intentionality is a requirement for consciousness.
Consciousness is the subject of
much research in
philosophy of mind,
Issues of practical concern include how the presence of consciousness
can be assessed in severely ill or comatose people;
whether non-human consciousness exists and if so how it can be measured;
at what point in
consciousness begins; and whether
can achieve a conscious state......

How achievement actually occurs, and a formula for it that puts success
