Sally is driving her car and talking on her cell phone. Statistically this behavior has been shown to be quite dangerous and contributes to many automobile accidents. In performing these two tasks simultaneously, Sally uses:
a. conscious cognitive processes
b. mindless behavior
c. subconscious cognitive processes
d. nonconscious thought processes
My answer was C, Can someone let me know if this is the correct choice?

    Any help????

  • Psychology -

    I would assume that she needed to be conscious for both processes. However, people typically do not do tasks simultaneously; they alternate back-and-forth between the two tasks.
