can you type while listening to someone's casual talk at the same time?

or do you lose track of one if you focus on the other?

Yeah, I have no problem with it.

No. I usually tell the person in front of me to hold on or just say “yeah” while I type :(

I will try to do both but when I get to the end of my post I type the wrong cranberry.

Only if they're talking to me do I get distracted

I can multitask.

But I may respond to the person about the subject on what I'm texting about and reply to the person about the subject discussed by the person 😂
[@476293,Beatbox34] that has ended in disaster for me before.

[@1011864,gobacktoyourroomandstudy] I know that all too well because I ended up telling what I was texting to my mom accidentally.
[@476293,Beatbox34] 🙊
If they're talking to me, then I can't do I stop and give them the "I'm listening but I don;t really want to" 😐️ Otherwise, there is chatter all around me....we have a loud office of wise cracks.

None of us is truly capable of multitasking. Anyone who claims otherwise is being disingenuous

I will say no. Even I am listen, I am not going to pay attention while my eyes staring phone screen.

Not that good at typing to begin with.

I have to focus on one or the other. I can hear people talk around me and catch bits and pieces while typing but if I want to actually listen I need to stop typing.
