      Re: Attention blindness - I didn't see it

      That was awesome! I was so focused on the students in the white shirts that I totally didn't see the ape at all.

      I suspect the results would have been different if the non-expected information (the guy in the ape suit) was closer to the information receiving the focus. By this, I mean if the viewer were instructed to count the passes made by the black shirted students instead.

      I suppose this video reinforces (for me) the need to remember to see the same information from different perspectives, and to be courteous with others who see it differently - neither in a discussion will have all the answers, but it is better to stay focused on the answer instead of the invective.

      I became a little curious on the fellow giving the talk, and attention blindness, and found these links for anyone who is interested.

      And a longer version of the same talk (although it doesn't appear to be the same event):

      This last link has a song at the end which I thought was great.

        I saw the ape man, but to be truthful I believe I saw the clip along time ago. I believe I missed it then :)

        I believe every waking moment I have my senses dulled more :(

            Ya, I remember this clip from a couple years ago, albeit with a different presenter. I originally saw it as part of a program about how things are designed for us to see or not see certain aspects (and how we are conditioned to see them) and how businesses use it when marketing or designing things, such as the arrow in the FedEx logo (between the E and the x) denoting speed subconsiously, so we naturally want to use FedEx.... or some crap like that.

            And yes, I saw the ape the first time as well. I'm an inspector, I seem to have this natural affinity to find things that aren't right or don't belong.

              That was amazing. I'm somewhat embarrassed that I missed it the first time.

                I got 17, and noticed a 4th black(shirted) player move through the pack. I did not, however, notice that it was a GORILLA.

                  Interesting. I picked up the ape dude right away, but I think the experiment was spoiled for me by "I didn't see it".

                    Heh heh...yeah, me too. I almost couldn't believe that it was the same clip.

                      I'm a film student currently, and one of the interesting things about studying film in a large lecture hall is the amount of background detail missed by the students - there are lots of seemingly glaring details that go unnoticed by the majority of people watching the film, including things like words spraypainted on city walls behind major characters and lone characters standing dejected behind a major dance sequence in a musical. Most people have a hard time seeing the big picture when faced with a specific thing that's calling their attention.

                        I got bored and stopped counting, and I did notice the gorilla immediately. I vaguely remember seeing this video before though, so that doesn't count.

                              Same - I caught 16 passes, but I can't help thinking that i took my eye off the ball because I was waiting for something unexpected to happen. My thoughts were that some trick would happen with the white shirted players, but the ape got my attention as soon as it moved on screen. I did not however see it beat its chest as I was back to counting passes.
