Selective Attention

I’m currently deep in research for an article I’m working on and in my research I came across this fascinating video. At least I found it fascinating! I challenge you all to give it a try--it’s super short, only a little over a minute-- then post a comment to let me know how you did!

LOL! I was off on my count by 1, but I did see the gorilla. I think that's because I'm great at multi-tasking and making sure I keep an eye on multiple kids at all times.

I counted correctly and did see the gorilla. :)

My counting was a few off, because I was laughing at the gorilla. That may just finalize my suspicion of adult ADD... or my love of humor. :)

Good luck on your research! g

Shockingly, I counted 15 and I also saw the "gorilla". Normally, I joke that they don't call me "Sherlock" for nothing because I never notice anything. I think that because I had specific instructions I was able to keep on task, but yet my Absurdities Meter was still on so I was also able to spot the actor in the gorilla suit.

Ok, back to napping and being oblivious...

All right, you guys have totally blown the stats right out of the water! Allegedly only 60% of people see him. My readers are WAY observant! :o)
