FACT: Women are better multitaskers than men

Women are superior to men when it comes to multitasking




BARNWELL — Here is a truth that will hurt my male readers (but I don't give a fuck): women — cis and trans — are better multitaskers.

Studies out this week confirmed what I long knew.

In the first experiment, both genders were put through a computer test involving a high level of attention. Both sexes slowed down when more tasks were added, but women slowed less than the men.

A second experiment was done.  Both men and women were asked to find a key in a field. Researchers determined women were better than men at devising a plan to find the key.

“Multitasking is getting more and more important in the office - but it’s very distracting, all these gadgets interrupting our workflow. … It could be that men suffer more from this constant switching,” a co-author whose name is being withheld by this blog told BBC.

Multitasking, or the lack thereof, is the main reason why I've been proven wrong by the men when it comes to driving.  Men are currently better drivers than women, even though I firmly believe that women are better drivers than men.  Texting and eating while driving, which are things women love to do, increase their risk of being in a fatal crash 23-fold.  If women wanna prove me correct in that they are better drivers than men, they will have to stop multitasking while driving.  It is that simple.
