    Wife concentrates on one subject at a time, spouse's brain multitasking, What is good solution?

    As brains change over time, adjustments must occur. It may be difficult for some people to resolve this issue.

    The wife is right to concentrate on one subject at a time, the spouse needs to learn to not multi-task. :-)

    If you read Dr. John Medina's best seller book titled, Brain Rules you will discern that our brains cannot multi-task without exponentially increasing error-rates. Have your hubby read it and then it will be easier to re-program his brain...

    Communication. You have to be aware of the differences in each other's types of thinking and make accommodations for them. I taught with a colleague who was a global thinker and had to process everything internally. I am a concrete thinker who processes information on the outside. So I always wanted to talk things out and she needed to think things through (usually overnight). After we began to understand our different needs, we were able to work more productively and congenially.

    Acceptance of differences is the only solution.
    It's unrealistic to expect someone to become who they are not. One just has to know if they ask this person to do something they're going to approach it (their) way.
    All that really matters is the end result!
    As one bestselling book stated: "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff". There are lots of couples who can only dream of having such small problems to contend with. If it's a "deal breaker" get out.
