Multitasking was once viewed as a coveted skill. Like computers, humans were expected to be able to perform five tasks at once without slowing down. Phone calls, emails, filing, etc, etc. The more we do at once, the faster we can be at completing those tasks.
That dream of a perfect multi-tasker was short lived. Studies came out suggesting multitasking was the bane of productivity, and evidence proved that cognitive ability – also known as IQ – lowered significantly when employees overburdened themselves with too much work at once. Our electronic-heavy offices were also contributing to the lack of productivity among workers. As a 2009 study with Stanford University found out, workers that “are regularly bombarded with several streams of electronic information do not pay attention” and are less likely to recall that information soon after.
So began the demonization of multitasking; but it should not be discredited so thoroughly.
