Abstract

The goal of this study is to find out whether people use information in their environment to diminish the interference in their problem state. Theories on multitasking focus on trying to predict when and why tasks interfere. In an earlier study Borst, Taatgen and Van Rijn (2010) showed the problem state caused interference in a dual task, consisting of a subtraction task and a text entry task, if both tasks needed the problem state module. We used an eyetracker to look how this interference influenced the eye movements made during this task and to find out if the interference will become less when there is information presented on the screen that represents the information that had to be kept in the problem state. Our results show that when the information is presented on the screen in a clear manner the response times and the fixations used to solve these tasks will decline. This suggests that people do use information in their environment to diminish the interference in their problem state..
