Think You’re Good At Multitasking?

I keep hearing messages about how multitasking is inefficient, and how it harms our ability to produce.  And, like so many other people, I said to myself, “Yes, but I’m clearly the exception: multitasking works for me.”  Then I found this quiz.

This isn’t new: the New York Times posted it three years ago.  When I stumbled on it, the results surprised me.

Do you consider yourself good at multitasking?  How well do you focus and shift contexts?  Are your results what you thought they’d be?
