How effective are you at multi-tasking?

How effective are you at multi-tasking?

We all do it, and some say that women can do it better than men. Yes, multi-tasking. There has doubtless been some empirical research on this topic, but if you’d prefer a more engaging way of discovering the truth or otherwise of who’s best at multitasking, as opposed to reading a dry academic paper, then check out this neat interactive Infographic from the folk over at OpenSite. They describe the test as follows: If you’re like most people, you probably…

So, having got to grips with the various attributes and behaviours symbolised as ‘Generation X‘ and ‘Generation Y‘ , it seems we need to recognise another category – ‘Generation V’. (Since we seem…
