But women usually multitask playing on Facebook and working. At least from my experience that's what I noticed. Most of them goof around online a lot. One of them played World of Warcraft in the office. Idk why she told me that though. I never ratted her out or anything but probably not wise to tell your co-workers you're playing WoW at work.

Don’t go hating on me for this but women are better for one simple reason, at the dawn of time men and wommen were given two different roles. The wommen had to do the house work and cook and stuff while the men were vocoder one one thing which was to get food as in today’s society is work

Just imagine the backlash if the title was “why men can lift way more than women.” There would be people crying in the comments saying it’s biased and not true. But apparently it’s ok to just put down men and just ignore the fact that they have built the whole world we live in today. They have invented things and fought wars just so women on buzzfeed can say that they are better at multitasking than men.

Angry Hothead (5 months ago)
Women are better than men are, and one of the things that proves that is they have better morals than they do. Most men harass women while most women do not harass men. An example of what I'm saying is that a man will keep trying to get a woman to date him even if she says no or she is already in a relationship. A woman wouldn't do that to a man. An another example is that a lot of men sexually harass women while none women sexually harass men.

I'm a man, and I think women are better than men are. Here are 7 things that women are better at doing then men are: 1. At running the world 2. At thinking clearly and rationally 3. At embracing compassion and empathy 4. At finding solutions to problems other than violence or war 5. At being tolerable to be around 6. At caring for earth and the environment 7. At just about everything that actually matters

Men are vastly superior . Everything is built by men. The PC you are using is made by men . The phone you are using is made by man . The movies you are watching ...... Women is just an organic baby born machine and she don't even know how the child will look like ...is just nature using her body . So is not she the creator of a new born. Also in sports , combat and most stressful jobs the man lead by far .. The studies that you present proof nothing against the reality . The reality is build my men . This is just feminist propaganda .

I'm a man who was bullied at work for 2 years by a middle-aged woman. She used to yell at me *_YOU'VE GOTTA START MULTITASKING!!!!!_* That was only 1 of her bullying tactics. I really don't give a damn if women are better than us at "multitasking". In MY naked eyes, multitasking is gay & bad for business. I eventually quit that job because of her bullying. I think she intentionally drove me out of there. My naked eyes hope to never see her again

women just don't understand, and quite frankly never will, men have geographic genes that make them inherently smarter and better, its not sexist, its science.

OK Lets see... what superpower is better? the ability to swich from one task to other as fast as you want, but you cant choose exactly what to focus on (distraction) or the ability to concentrate on a single thing, but it super hrd to swich between one or other
TheGreatslyfer (1 year ago)
So in this video Buzzfeed has no problem saying that women are better than men at a particular trait/skill, which is multitasking in this case. But if you were to say to them that there are more men in science fields than women because men are better suited to those fields, they would think SOMETHING WRONG IS GOING ON. That there's a magical conspiracy behind doors where top-level men in business suits hold a secret meeting and discuss how to... ruin women's lives? Yeah, totally believable guys, oh and don't forget to take back the evidence you present for that... oh wait nvm you don't have evidence, my bad.

I think that you don't have a fucken clue what you're talking about! Men and women? There are unlimited numbers of genders are you are trying to squeeze all of them into your tiny little boxes with your preconceived ideas learned by living in a patriarchy. I can't believe how genderphobic you're being!

this video offends me as a non-binary gender fluid demi queer. they assumed there's only two genders without giving me any representation. This video needs to be reported for hate speech for not being all inclusive. I expected so much better from Buzzfeed

Mathew Smuts (1 year ago)
Hay buzzfeed your linked articles don't support your claimed results. Once again you're lying through your teeth to make tell people what you want instead of what science says. Which is by the way not a gender thing. Who is better at multi tasking ranges from person to person like most skills.

Starship808 (1 year ago)
1) Your "sources" have almost NOTHING to do with the topic of "MULTI-TASKING". 2) Multi-tasking is a myth perpetuated by morons and is not possible for the human brain, (male or female) to do. Buzzfeed, how about you knock it off with your gender-baiting. This video is nothing more than an attempt at cashing in on some ads, and attempting to create a divide between the sexes. Real sources that actually pertain to the topic of Multi-tasking: http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/14640748908402350 http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=95256794 https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/the-power-prime/201103/technology-myth-multitasking There is a plethora of other scientific research disproving the myth of "Multi-tasking".

elbowbiter1 (1 year ago)
Why is it when I check all possible sources for this stuff that it says something completely opposite to the message being broadcast by buzzfeed? Why is it when ever actual science looks at this stuff it rarely paints women in this glorious light. Yes, women have attributes that men don't. Apparently multitasking isn't one of them. I know, to some of you it sounds like I am being mean to all women everywhere. No. Real women are ok with this and can handle the science. Real women are down with reality. Real women don't need to be coddled and lied to. There are two types of mysogynist out there... buzzfeed and feminism are one of them. Actual women haters are the other kind. Luckily both are in the minority. Now let's work together to make haters of men in the minority too.

how about providing some actual evidence for your claim? Fucking biased morons
This seems questionable. I can most likely find studies that go against this that are actually recent also have you looked at the flaws of the studies as well to make sure they were not biased?
Nikolai (1 year ago)
So men focus on their tasks and get them done the best way possible while women do lots of things but they are all half assed attempts.

Rex Kenny (1 year ago)
Why is multi tasking better and why do you have a so bad attitude towards single task? This is biological and you can see it in other mammals; the female are often the one taking care of the young one, look where they are, look for predators and keep on eye on the others in the flock. The male task is to get food, that it the task, when they see food that are focused on the food, if they do not get food the family will starve or die, in this situation is to no good time to do other things. What the females and male are doing is booth good and important, multitasking is in no way better, you may get more done, but then come the stress factor in and many females feel stressed of doing so many things, but they are still so proud that they can do all this things at the same time so BuzzFeed are making a video about it. I'm a man, I will not change and I can't change, and I will not feel bad for females that are multitasking with talking in the phone, putting on make up, care for the children at the same time she pulls out on the highway to go to the supermarket.

They make it sound like focusing on a single thing at hand is a bad thing. It's not. Both male and female brains have their environments in which they are more useful.

i can pee in a sink and wash my hands at the same time can women do that?
I don't understand why people are saying " men are better or women are better" that not true at all it depends on the individual, just because a men or women is really bad in math does not mean the rest of the men or women in this world is bad at math.
