Change Blindness

From Biopsychology

I was very interested after reading about change blindness in Chapter 7. Change blindness is the phenomenon that occurs in which when we view a scene we have no memory for the parts of the scene that were not in our immediate focus. Basically - we do not see obvious things that we are not “looking for” The example they give is not good because the picture is not alternating. I wanted to see if I would react the same way to an obvious gross phenomenon in a scene.

I found the following video. Check it out!

It is not really a change blindness test per se, but it definitely shows that don’t pay attention to things that we are not focusing on!

Thank you for reading! Share your thoughts with me on mastodon or via email.
