Re: The new Invisible Gorilla test

I saw the gorilla and noticed the curtain turning orange...counting the passes was tough though...missed a couple.

Re: The new Invisible Gorilla test

The thread title kind of hinted to me to be on the lookout for a gorilla. So I saw it. Not sure I would have if I hadn't been looking.

Missed the passes and paid attention to everything else once the Gorilla walked in.

According to this article :
Quote:
Now research delving further into this effect shows that people who know that such a surprising event is likely to occur are no better at noticing other unforeseen events - and may even be worse at noticing them - than others who aren't expecting the unexpected.
So I guess it's not supposed to matter if you expect to see it.

Oh cool. Then I'm just astute. Because I saw it.

But you already knew how awesome I am.

Re: The new Invisible Gorilla test

It's hard to describe. I counted 16 passes, and it was like my brain registered that changes were happening with the screen and the person walking off but I just dismissed it in my mind as unimportant and that's why I wasn't focusing too hard on it. So it's safe to say it didn't register in my head that a gorilla came through there even though a part of me said changes were happening with the black team.

It's like how you focus on one thing and changes occur around it, and you semi-notice it but don't pay attention because it's not what you're focused on.
