“Do you know how to multitask?”, is a question that I have been asked in a lot of job interviews. And I always went “who doesn’t?” Was I being cocky? Maybe. But seriously, aren’t we now living in the times when one has more than 3 completely unrelated tabs in their browser and 4 different apps on their phone open at any given time?
Or so I thought. Until I actually got to multitasking in the professional realm; which is not the same as browsing through Instagram while listening to music. This fleeting experience made me sit down and look at the definition of multitasking.
How many of you knew that true multitasking involves the active participation of the brain in all tasks?
