It is almost universally stated that women are better at multi tasking than men. A proper review of the research now shows that this may not be the case at all, or at best the evidence is not there to support the contention.

Debunking this myth would be a good thing because at the moment the belief that they can multi task effectively, encourages women to try to work in that way, when in fact all of the evidence says that humans perform much more effectively if they perform one task at a time and attack their jobs in sequence as opposed to trying to deal with them in parallel.
