i get so many surveys i end up doing 3 at a time to get them done with! thank god for high speed internet! although some times i get screwed and they are all hour long or all of them have videos etc lol.. do you do them 1 at a time to give them full attention or several at a time so you get through them faster?

I cant do more than two at a time because then ill forget which survey was for what. For the longest time i did only one at a time because i had this bizarre idea that doing more than one would mess up the other one. But then that was back when i wasnt used to having more than one tab up at a time.

It's really appreciable to take three surveys at a time. But we find difficulty in following the continuity of each survey. Is it not so..But as you are well practiced with this, you may feel easy.I am not getting that much survey invitations at all will receive one or two in a week. So there is no need for such question.

Good grief! My brain is so bad I have trouble doing ONE at a time! LOL Sometimes, they tell you approximately how long the survey will take. If I have the time or feel like it, I'll do the longer ones, but ONLY one at a time. Normally, I skip over the longer ones because I just can't sit in one position very long at all without extreme pain setting in. (I wish that !#&!*@ disability judge could watch me for a day... he'd KNOW how much pain I'm in and stop doubting me... and the doctor's reports!!!) Some days, I post a lot in myLot, but what you don't see, what I do between postings, is get up and move around, quite often! If I sit longer than 10 minutes, my back starts screaming at me, so I have trouble with the longer surveys. I'm quite impressed that you can do 3 at a time! Dang! I simply can't focus or concentrate on more than one thing at a time. I used to have a sign that I had near my desk when I worked in an office. It said, "Please! I can only do 12 things at once!" I used to have no problem at all multi-tasking but, these days, ain't no way!

LOL, I couldn't take more than 2 at a time. Even then, sometimes I get confused and forget which one I'm answering to - and get the two confused (which is probably not a great idea). If they have videos, sometimes they require you to shut all of your other windows down (do you notice that, too?) and so it's literally impossible to do two at once. But I do love to multi-task when doing surveys (listening to music, on myLot and facebook, etc!) and I usually take a break between every couple of pages just for the sake of getting a response or two in at myLot in between.

i dont usually have to close other things to do the video ones but its annoying when they dont warn you and just start playing a video and you had music on or something and miss part of it because you couldnt pause everything else in time
