Multi-thinking — 8 Comments

  1. Wow! Seems to me, The corpus callosum can be a very close analogy to “broad band” internet. Back in the day of dial-up modems, you could barely stand to wait for just ONE website to load at a time. But with broadband (DSL, Cable, Fiber Optic) we are streaming video feeds while we surf the net, at the same time we are emailing pics to our friends. Hmmm… woman = DSL, man = dial-up!

    • I completely agree with you, that’s why I referred to “a number of” men in the first paragraph and not all men. I have also come across some men who are just as good at multitasking and multi-thinking as a number of women, and I have a great respect for them and men in general. And by a similar token, many but not all women are multi-thinking or multitasking. We can make generalities about the genders but there will always be exceptions.

  3. Interesting. I’ve always said that women can mulit-task and multi-think at the same time because we need to be to do that in order to be moms, secretaries(that’s WHY most secretaries are women), bookkeepers, etc. I know it certainly comes in handy, although my husband looks at me sometimes as if I’m from another planet!
