Keeping the muzzle pointed in a safe direction since 2008
In my college 'intro to psychology' class, they showed a similar film with a naked woman strolling through a cocktail party. No one noticed the (staged) armed robbery in the center of the room while watching her winding around the other guests. The professor's only comment was, "Pay attention; things are not always what they seem."Good advice, it seems.
Huh, I got the correct number and the gorilla. But then, calling it a "selective attention test" was a red flag.
Heh... Seen that one before, and it's 14...I think...
Okay, but without going back to look - what letter was written on the wall behind the people? (I thought that was going to be the "did you see" question.)
I counted 15, including a near drop, and a few dribbles. The black team passed 20 times. A woman in a gorilla suit casually shuffled through the middle of the group of six players. There were three men and three women; with one woman on the white team, and two on the black team.Yeah, that kind of obsessive observation is the primary reason that I'm really disappointed by prestidigitation.
I was doing great counting the passes when some nitwit in a gorilla suit walked through the middle of the demo, blocking my view of the passes and I had to concentrate a lot harder not to lose count.That's a very poor example of a selective attention test - the (gorilla) is supposed to walk through the background.
The first time I saw this, 5 years or so ago, I swear I did NOT notice the gorilla at all.I'm not trying to sound cool or dumb or special.Did. Not. See it.Spooky.
What differ said. I like the selective attention test where you've got a hot chick in a car, with her squishies hanging out for all to see, and there is a .357 in the center console and she's got her hand on it. Most men never see the gun.
