Pay attention!

This has absolutely nothing to do with quilting, I just think it’s interesting. I first saw it three or four years ago.

What were your results? (For the record, I was wrong the first time I saw it.)

  1. LOL.. That was awesome. I managed to count 15, AND see the gorilla. However, I looked at it the way I would one of those mosaic pictures from which a 3-D image is supposed to appear, since I was trying to track the movements of three individuals.

    • About half of the people who watch this video don’t see the gorilla because they’re so focused on seeing what they expect to see – in this case, people with white shirts passing a ball. It’s called inattentional blindness. There’s a second gorilla video that has other changes happening, and even people who have seen the gorilla video and are aware that there are other changes still miss those other changes.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts! I try to reply to every comment, but sometimes it takes a few days. And sometimes, well... it has been known to drop off the radar. I'm easily distracted by shiny things.
