New research finds that our brains do best deciding between two options and that men and women are equally ill-suited for multitasking. "The human mind may be inherently incapable of dealing with more than two tasks at a time according to a study showing that 'multi-tasking' skills are limited by the physical division of the brain into two hemispheres. Scientists have found that when people have to carry out two tasks simultaneously their brains divide each job up so that one is performed largely by the left side of the brain and the other is carried out mainly on the right."
