But my handicap is multitasking if it is not job related. I am very flexible in multitasking if it is about a job that I am working on but I can not do one job and talk about something unrelating. I have seen people doing calculations and at the same time talking on the phone about weather or sports...no can do.
No offence to men, but I've noticed that about a lot of them. I read a study years ago about women's brains being wired differently because while taking care of the kids they have a multitude of other tasks to attend to at the same time.
Over the years, with the many men I've worked with, I've teased them about it, especially when time is of the essence. It's amazing how when their mouths start moving their hands stop. I'm not saying all women and all men fit neatly into either category, just something I've observed in general.
