This Research Applies to Students Who Try to Do Biology In English Class Too

Few good multitaskers exist according to the New York Times.  The key quotation:

In the meantime, Mr. Strayer and the researchers say most people should not expect to successfully supertask. And they absolutely should not try to do so behind the wheel of a car because, he said, they face significantly inflated crash risk.

“Some readers may also be wondering if they too are supertaskers,” said the paper by Mr. Strayer and his colleague, Jason Watson. “We suggest the odds of this are against them.”
 Most students probably will take 2.5% chance that they are supertaskers.  Gotta love enthusiasm.
