Not a supertasker?

Only some brains can multitask, says a new study from the University of Utah.

In the study, only 2.5% of the participants could talk on the phone while navigating a driving simulator. Everyone else’s performance dropped by 20% to 30%.

Only the “supertaskers” were unimpaired.

Lesson: Don’t expect to successfully multitask, especially while driving. The odds are against you.

—Adapted from "Only a Few Can Multi-Task," Matt Richtel, The New York Times.
