I don't know if it's the internet, but something is certainly destroying my brain. :shuffle:

So I'm not as bad as I thought?
Test 1, 2 blue: 100%
Test 1, 6 blue: 100%

Test 2 (http://i45.tinypic.com/avrar6.jpg)

And here I thought I was rotten through and through, addled with ADD and an overwhelming world!

Not the internet, but mental pause is my excuse and I am sticking by it! :D

Distractibility: 92%, no matter if there were 2 blue rectangles or 6

Switching between letter and numbers: 2086 milliseconds to answer
Repeating the same task: 2165 milliseconds to answer
Additional time for switching: - 79 milliseconds
Higher numbers than even low AND high multitaskers!!

I was having trouble remembering what is a vowel and what is a consonant. I haven't been asked that in so long, I sort of forgot LOL

Not distractable, and missed only one on the second (for much the same reason I immoimeme--I was blanking on consonant/vowle and odd/even.) Slower on reacting, I think partially because I am half-asleep and partially because I sometimes don't "see" what's on the left side of screens.

First Focus test I got perfect....second test I got over 2000ms for just about all of the letters. I did better on the numbers lol

75% with 2 distracters, 92% with 6 of them...so maybe I'm not a wreck yet ;)...

Hm. 92% when there were two blue rectangles, and 100% when there were six. Not bad.

What does it say about me when I don't understand the results? :o On the switching test, my "additional time" is negative (-176 ms).

You're stupid.

Just kidding but I couldn't resist.

I would have done better but I kept getting distracted by the TV :shuffle:

On the test 1, there was sometimes only one image...So, I couldn't know if there was change between the two images !!!!

Welcome to the club! I got - 960 ms on the switching time, at my first attempt :shuffle: .

The second time I took the test, my results fit roughly with the "high multitaskers" :slinkaway

I did much better on the second test (very close to the low multitaskers) when I did it without the TV blaring and the cats running around.
