Check out this very interesting article about how the deluge of information in our lives is actually rewiring your brain. Guys, now you have another excuse when your girlfriend/wife accuses you of being distracted and forgetful: “the Internet is stressing me out!”
In a study, it was found that people who consider themselves multitaskers tend to ineffectively filter out distractions. Try this game to test your ability to filter out distractions.
How does your brain work?
I personally consider myself horrible at multitasking. Instead, I like to focus on one problem at a time until it is finished. I check my e-mail in bulk and try not to get distracted when I’m working on projects. On the test above I scored 100% with 2 distractions and 100% with 6 distractions, and I think it is because I am so capable of focusing on the single issue at hand.
Do you consider yourself a multitasker?
What did you score on the game?
I would also have played this game to test your ability to juggle tasks, but I am too distracted by my work to spend even 5 minutes playing another game.

Multitasking is great brain workout as long as each contributes to the others and probably no more than 5 activities.
Our brain has much, much more capability than we allow it to.
