    Default Multi-tasking:

    Ne or Te?
    Well I am back. How's everyone? Don't have as much time now, but glad to see some of the old gang are still here.

    Females are more apt to multitask than men, but other than that I agree with extroversion.

    Intelligent people multitask.

    Idiots do one thing badly at a time and go overtime.

    I multitask, but if the tasks require a lot of physical accuracy, I can sometimes be too slow. In the lab, there are usually many thing to do, all have to be done at a certain rate. (a la, "add the dye, wait 4 min, wash it with ethanol"). Multitasking in necessary to avoid wasting time, but it's a bit dangerous, because being late might have awful consequences (having the dye on the bacteria culture for longer than was said in the manual, might cause lysis.)

    Erkki doesn't multitask, but it's great to see him try. If he's helping me out in the kitchen and is dicing something, he usually won't even notice that I said something.

    EDIT: Women multitask more than men and I don't think it's type-related. Both Te and Ne will help multitasking:
    Ne: person can monitor more processes at the same time.
    Te: person will be good at logically deciding which order to do things, so s/he will be able to have many tasks at the same time. The person will do concentrate on one thing at a time, but will have many developing tasks (many tasks being done "at the same time")

    Are we asking what function can multitask better or what function multitasks more often? Because everyone can multitask but not everyone does it all that often.

    This is retarded.

    Not type related.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    Agreed. Type-related part is what the person can do while multitasking. What s/he can multitask with.

    Types are tendencies, not strengths or weaknesses. It's what the person will most likely choose to do while multitasking that is affected by type.

    I somewhat disagree... I don't think a person can really multitask with activities that are "powered" by the PoLR.

    My point is that someone wouldn't be likely to involve themselves in an activity that is, as you say, "powered" by their PoLR.

    haha... We are talking about the same thing.

    I'd add that sometimes people have to do things that are PoLR activities. Even if they are normally good at multitasking, they won't be able to multitask when doing those things.

    As for Firefox Tabs, it's usually around 20.

    Anyway, I have noticed that xSxj types are usually pissed by my mutitasking.

    7 right now, if I only count the IE windows (3 other things as well, such as programs)
    About 7-10 usually, I think.

    2-3. 1-2IE's open and one BNET window open. And Trillian is always running whether I am here, sleeping or not home. So 3-4 really.

    You're wrong.

    The Brodmann's Area 10 in the front of your brain is active during multitasking. It switches around from one thing to the next, constantly changing, but is terrible at focusing. It tries to make conslusions too quickly, often making mistakes. Actually, if you mulitask too much, the areas more in the posterior region of your brain have a hard time funcitoning, at which point you have no more desire for deep concentration. This is call "mental antsyness".

    I think Extraverts are more susceptable to this. Especially ExxPs (but certianly not all Extraverts have this problem).
    MAYBE I'LL BREAK DOWN!!!

    I guess that's when some people actually TRY to multitask, and fuck everything up.
