    Probably 2 but I prefer to just be in one at a time. I think it’s more considerate. I know I don’t want to be in a conversation with someone who is preoccupied talking with someone else.

    I think I could actually do this well. When I worked in the lunchroom and on the playground I had all kinds of distractions when I was talking to someone. I do agree with you Nikki though, it is rude. I really hate it when someone does this on a cell phone.

    I am up to 3. My husband, my teenage daughter and my youngest daughter. I switch the dialect for each age as needed.

    Well I have 5 children so five, but they are not deep conversations.

    I pretty much suck if I’m trying to do more than one, but if I have to, I can do maybe 3 or 4.

    Just a Mom – I love that, switch the dialect! 🙂

    I cannot be an intelligent human with more than one person talking to me at once. And since there are six in our family plus my cell phone, I am pretty much a dimbulb all the time! 😛

    as many as are going on around me. And the ones I’m not included in…I can still listen in on and repeat later to my bff! 🙂

    all I have to do with my mini-mes is talk in acronyms! We all understand and we use a lot less oxygen!

    One, if there is a verbal conversation involved. Three, if they’re all over IM and the other people type more slowly than I do (I type about 70 wpm).

    What I absolutely cannot do is try to hold a verbal conversation with someone and a typed conversation simultaneously. I once told my boss, when he came up to ask me a question, “Don’t talk to me. I can’t hear you when I’m typing!” We both had a good laugh when I was done with the IM conversation, but I was completely serious–I couldn’t begin to process what he’d said while I was typing. The IM conversation was a work conversation, of course, or I would have stopped IMing to listen to him.

    I am absolutely horrible at carrying on more than one conversation. So, I usually hold up my hand to whomever is interrupting me so that they will wait until I can be fully focused on them.

    Probably 2, but one is so much better!
