Imagine your roommate is reading online. As she reads, you notice her cell phone is going off constantly, she keeps stopping her reading to respond to text messages, and she even does a quick Google search for movie times that evening. Which of the following statements could you make to your roommate to explain the research on multitasking?

▸ "I guess you are just better at multitasking than I am."

▸ "It's great that your reading is online so that you can take care of lots of things at one time."

▸ "The research suggests that reading while distracted is really not going to be very effective-you might want to turn off your phone and close down your other apps."

▸ "Research shows that we get better at multitasking with practice so I guess you are definitely practicing!"
