not uncommon <period>

Perhaps not, and I didn't mean to suggest that you weirdos, I mean, extroverts <g> are all perfect multi-taskers with edetic memory.

But multi-tasking / short-term memory are apparently not something most introverts do well. Or, so the book claims that the research claims.

I am not good at either, either. Both of those weaknesses are plagueing me on my current project at work. The software is huge, complex, riddled with anachronisms that must be removed, the schedule is very tight (stupid tight), the tools are extremely flakey and prone to locking up, the time-cost of switching tasks within those tools is high (for various reasons not worth going into), and yet I'm constantly being asked to switch from X to Y to Z and now why isn't X done yet?
