In the real world, notably similar to the computer science definition, multitasking refers to attempting to work towards multiple goals simultaneously. A simplistic example could be reading and talking at the same time or even the old cliché of walking and chewing gum at the same time. A more complex example could be referred from child psychology and the concept of automaticity. A child cannot begin to draw a picture for an oral word problem until they have learned to listen and draw at the same time. Many of us eventually multitask without giving it a second thought while on other occasions we may find ourselves increasingly stressed as multitasking grows.
