Multitasking again

I have agreed before about multitasking and that you have to focus yourself in what you are doing. Now Adrian W. Savage have found an article in the prestigious scientific journal “Nature” that it is not good to fill up your mind with too many things.

Researchers found our awareness is limited to only three or four objects at any given time. Because of this “extreme limitation,” people need to control what reaches their awareness, so only the most relevant information in the environment consumes their limited mental resources.

A study of brain activity in subjects performing a task shows that our awareness is not determined only by what we can keep ‘in mind’ but also by how good we are at keeping irrelevant things ‘out of mind’.
