A new study finds people who multi-task the most are actually the least capable of doing it well -- including talking on the phone while driving.

University of Utah researchers measured the perceived and actual multi-tasking ability of 300 college students.

many who thought they were better than average and therefore multi-tasked more often ...... tended to have the lowest ability scores.

researchers say frequent multi-taskers can have difficulty focusing on one thing ... so they get drawn into a second task -- like talking on the phone as they drive.

experts believe these findings support stricter laws that would limit cellphone use while operating a car.

Just remember to use your hands-free device and to NOT text while driving!
