Firstly, do you believe people can multitask? Secondly, are you any good at multitasking?
Thirdly, if you do multitask, what things do you multitask the most with?

I do believe people can multitask and I'm relatively good at it. I don't do this often, but I'm good at multitasking when I cook, I can chop and stir at the same time depending on what it is. Not all things need a steady hand so it's easy just to chop quickly with my right while I stir with my left like lettuce while storing taco meat.

Like most of us, I think we can multitask but in reality it's really lousy. I usually try to watch a tv show or YouTube video while working on stuff on the computer, but then both tasks suffer. Listening to music in the background is different, though, I can do that while doing other things quite easily.

It's a fallacy and you can only really manage like two things at a time.
And on that day, mankind received a grim reminder...
