People who multi-task the most worst at it: study
People with high levels of impulsivity and sensation-seeking reported more multi-tasking.
Those who engaged in multi-tasking often do so because they are less able to block out distractions and focus on a singular task - rather than because they have the ability, the study found.
Sanbonmatsu said that the 25 per cent who performed best on multi-tasking ability are the people who are least likely to multi-task and are most likely to do one thing at a time.
The study was published in the journal PLOS ONE.
