To multitask or not to multitask, that is the question. Scientists are divided over whether multitasking is good or bad. One theory says that people can only multitask if they are really good at both tasks, while another claims that we don't actually multitask--instead, our brain switches between tasks. Most scientists agree, however, that your performance on any task is worse when multitasking than when doing it on its own.
