The Believing Game

There was a point brought to light throughout the video that students are actually not as productive at multitasking as they assume. This is followed up by a segment of researchers conducting a study on a small group of students at Stanford that concludes with results explaining their brains are in fact not focused while multitasking. Even without research records being exposed, it is known that the human brain performs much more precisely when concentrating on one thing at a time. The amount of concentration being placed by the individual would have to be spread among numerous tasks, making each of those tasks much more difficult to accomplish. In the long run, the productivity would lessen more and more.

There was a point brought to light throughout the video acknowledging that students believe in advancing their productivity by mulitasking. It is no surprise that students are piled on with a lot of work, therefor making it nearly impossible to get it all done with the amount of time they are given. Nearly every college student is forced to experience this, especially those pertaining in the more difficult majors. In return, this allows students to get more done in minimal amount of time. There are studies that show the human brain’s incapability to focus on more than one thing at a time, but this does not apply to the fact that every student still successfully does it.
