Contrary to the messages from our wired, workaholic culture, multitasking is a myth. Not just individuals but also cultures have characteristic ways of attending that create different realities. The reason you can’t remember the name of the person you just met isn’t impending Alzheimer’s, but because you didn’t pay attention to it in the first place. Even very smart people can make dumb decisions about important matters if they focus on the wrong things.
We are ever gaming ourselves.
