Are You Observant?

Posted by Andrew at 4:12 PM on July 13, 2010

Do you consider yourself to be an observant kind of person?  Someone who really pays attention to detail?  If you are, then you’ll be interested in watching and participating in a couple of video tests by researchers Christopher Chabris and Daniel Simons.  These are genuine experiments – there’s no skull or shriek going to pop out half way through.

The first is a over ten years old and is considered to be a classic – just follow the instructions. It’s best if you can run it full-screen.

Now, if you’ve seen that one before, or if you want to try it for a second time, you can watch this newer version. Again just follow the instructions and also best viewed full-screen.

If you’ve been totally fascinated by what you’ve just seen, then head on over to the source site here or the YouTube Channel for more videos.
