Chew and Type??
September 11, 2008 9:55am CST
Can you chew and type at the same time? Of course provided that you have your hands free to type. I havent really taken notice of it until a friend pointed out while chatting that he cant chew and type at the same time. That retained in my mind somehow and wanted to see for myself if I am like that without being biased in any way. So this afternoon while grabbing a bite and typing some responses, I remembered the comment. I have my snack on one hand and type with the other hand. My results were pretty conclusive that I can chew while typing or type while chewing, whichever you prefer.LOL! Anyways, what about you? Can you "multi-task" these activities? Perhaps you'd also like to share what are your usual snacks at the computer? Do you have snacks with an accompanying drink as well? Thanks for sharing.^_^

I often eat my lunch at my desk whilst working and only stop to grab hold of my sandwich and put it in my mouth. I certainly can chew and type at the same time and, honestly, I do not understand what is so hard about it. As I work in a busy office I find that I am constantly mulit-tasking throughout the day, for example I carry on typing when I'm on the phone and I am often photocopying whilst relaying a message to a colleague.

Well, I can multi task but I cant really chew and type. I can try when Im conscious about the food in my mouth but when my mind is really engrossed in what I was typing about then I sometimes forget to chew.LOL You must be very efficient in your work, with all that multi tasking.

All my working life has been spent in office environments so I have gotten used to it other wise I would not be able to do my job as offices are always very busy places to be. Personally I would rather be busy then sat about doing nothing. I have worked in a quiet office where there was never much to do and it was so boring. This was one place where I didn't have to multi-task as there was just not enough work to do that.

Well, I have done it per pause and a half full of my food I could still manage to eat as I know to type with only one hands being use as I am really a slow typist, I could do a lot of multi-tasking activities which is possible most of the times. As you itself have manage to try and it works pretty well on you.. lol..

Most of the time I will drink tea, milk tea or a hot chocolate at night, this one is kinda easy for myLotting and stuffs. As for preparing a meal and enjoying it while I chat it starts being a little bit embarassing well coz my hands will be busy with forks but yeah I can chew something for sure, why not a chewing gum by the way When I have a meal break, most of the time I'll watch a serie or a movie

Oh so you mean you are putting a cup close to your lips with one hand and typing something with your other hand? Or did you mean those kinds of snacks are easy since they would 'force' you to stop typing so as not to spill the contents of the cup? Thanks for the response and pardon the super late comment.

lol... You know what, I just tried and even though I could manage, I noticed that when I am reading or typing something intently, just as I am doing now my mouth is stopping.That means my concentration in on that thing alone which makes me stop doing other activities. This goes to show another thing, BJ. How bad I am in multitasking! It's true but I am not a good multitasker.

Yes i can chew and type at the same time with no problems at all. Usual snacks at the computer apart from normal food are peanuts and sunflower seeds i guess. I sometimes drink some energy drinks, but not necessarily mix them with the snacks.

Hiya, I love peanuts.^_^ Just cant eat them while typing. I prefer to have more concentration when eating them. Especially when the nuts are still in their shells.LOL!^_^ Speaking of shells, do sunflower seeds have shells? Kinda like watermelon seeds where you need to pop the shell to get the seed inside? Just curious. Thanks for the response.
