Two types of multitasking costs:
Type 1: Switching Cost
Type 2: Mixing cost
Switch RT - Repeat RT = Switching Cost
RT= Reaction Time
Mixed RT - Pure RT = Mixing Cost
We believe that users of “TikTok” are better at multitasking in comparison
to non “TikTok” users and that they will have significantly lower scores in task
switching and mixing costs when completing the multitasking experiment.
