such as in school, when I was in school I would always be drawing/painting or reading, or drawing AND reading and I remember one time one of my teachers was, trying to be smart with me, asked me what he has said the past 15 min and i recited almost everyhting he said LOL, after that he let me read in class.he said he was getting annoyed, that i was drawing and nose deep in a book, and he said most people cant pay attention while doing that, and that, i need to be doing something to pay attention, and honestly i think its true because i cant just do ONE thing

in every day life I just cant do ONE thing at a time


I would make things too lol

I can listen to an audio of something while reading something else at the same time and still know what's going on in both.

I can listen to music and read at the same time, but I can't read and watch TV at the same time. I actually get more work done if I'm listening to music, then if I'm just working quietly.

I can, but I definitely function better when focusing one one task with little or no distractions.

No. I'm already extremely slow as it is. I guess I can do simple administration tasks whilst talking and listening to very quiet background music.

Well now that's impressive! If I'm watching anime, especially sub, I'm only watching anime. It's all I can do to keep up with the the subtitles, if I was trying to read something else, I would have to put the show on pause to do it. Even for dub anime I would probably only do other things if I had already watched the show and didn't need to split my visual concentration. When I read I do have music on, but not lyrical, only instrumental. Really, the music just serves as background noise to whatever I'm doing, but I definitely have to have some kind of auditory thing going except when I'm asleep, I really don't like the quiet.

You're like my sister. I tried to be like her but ended up crying because I never got anything done that day..... Childhood memories.... Wow. But I really envy you. I think some people are just good at it. And then there are people like me who don't do it very well at all............

Music is always on. I can cook and book flights, text my clients, walk my dog, and fix presentations almost simultaneously. I don't know what I should be paying attention to though.

I'm pretty much gifted in the art of multitasking.

Yes my work calls for multi-tasking and you have to be ready for that ever surprise amount of work.
