    Dang, I thought I was going to do good on that test but I failed miserably.

    Yeah I failed too, but I learned about "inattentive blindness".

    Very interesting. As I watched this, I was reminded of a book I am reading called "Fear Less" by Gavin De Becker. In it he explains that one need not focus on strange things because one's intuition will automatically pick these things up...

    My son and I watched the video at the same time...we both failed miserably. Had we not focused on counting the passes, we would have seen it...

    I don't know if that's really as impressive as it seems. The point is is that you tell your brain to filter out everything but the thing you want to focus on...so obviously something that almost completely resembles the thing you're trying to ignore isn't going to catch your attention. Had they mentioned "keep a look out for anything odd..." then things might have been different.

    It's a neat trick, but it makes perfect sense.

    True, but what if you're at a convention or some gathering with security or some kind of staff around, and a person starts acting crazy? Everyone will pay attention to the crazy person, and a real BG dressed as security or staff could pretty much walk around unimpeded.

    It's been working for magicians for hundreds of years....

    I use this and many other examples in the Mindset course I teach. It is really about the difference between the various processing sites in the brain. If you are devoting a lot of energy to calculating and watching for a specific thing to be calculated, you do not have enough left over to pick up on other things.

    I think the most interesting part is that the OC Monkey makes a show.

    Dr. Zaius even has his own song from the Simpsons, sung to the tune of Rock Me, Amadeus by Falco:

    Dr Zaius, Dr Zaius
    3F15 - 24th March 1996


    [All] Dr Zaius, Dr Zaius!
    Dr Zaius, Dr Zaius!
    Dr Zaius, Dr Zaius!
    Oh, Dr Zaius
    Dr Zaius, Dr Zaius!
    [Troy] What's wrong with me?
    [Dr Zaius] I think you're crazy
    [Troy] I want a second opinion
    [Dr Zaius] You're also lazy
    [All] Dr Zaius, Dr Zaius!
    Dr Zaius, Dr Zaius!
    Dr Zaius, Dr Zaius!
    Oh, Dr Zaius
    Dr Zaius, Dr Zaius!
    [Troy] Can I play the piano anymore?
    [Dr Zaius] Of course you can
    [Troy] Well, I couldn't before
    [All] Dr Zaius, Dr Zaius!
    Dr Zaius, Dr Zaius!
    Dr Zaius, Dr Zaius!
    Oh, Dr Zaius
    Dr Zaius, Dr Zaius!
    Dr Zaius, Dr Zaius!
    Dr Zaius, Dr Zaius!
    Dr Zaius, Dr Zaius!
    Oh, Dr Zaius

    We need an OC Monkey version of this song...

    You ever hear of LEVA? If so, you ever take any training from them? Or perhaps the NA?

    I thought that was a distraction in an attempt to make you lose count of the passes. So how many passes did you guys count. I got 17................................................ ...........................DF1

    Way too situationally aware to be fooled by that.. also the significance of the S's on the walls troubled me.

    Not that I'm aware of but my memory and observation skills were just proven faulty! My dept only uses CA POST courses.

    I got the count right. I also saw something odd. I knew there was one of the people in black that walked out from the side into the middle. I thought it was a person in a black burka! I always percieved myself as prone to situational blindness but glad to see it is not as bad as I originally thought. Woman in a burka is close to a gorilla, right?
