    Link: The I-A-B Attention Test, Part 2 - Yeah, the previous test didn`t fool many people. I-A-Bers are an intelligent bunch. Let`s run tape again.

    I find this pretty lame. I counted 16 passes and barely noticed the gorilla since my eye caught something fuzzy. But why would it matter if you can see other stuff change if it is unimportant? You are asked to do a task and you will focus on it to get it right. So why would it matter if I can spot the curtains changing unless I`m being absent minded and gave up on the task halfway through.

    I remember being linked to one of these tests that ran as a commercial on canadian tv, as a reminder to pay attention to everything when driving.

    So the whole point is not to overly focus on just one or two things that you know will happen, but to pay attention all the time.

    I caught it all and got the right number of passes, i must have some sort of super power.

    Also, maybe iab shouldn`t have used the gorilla as the icon (of course I saw it, the only reason I clicked on the link was to see a gorilla.)

    I got the right number, and saw the gorilla enter, but didn`t see anything else, lol. I remember this psychology experiment I read about where they did something like this, but they had people come up to a desk to register for the experiment. At one point the person behind the desk would bend down to get something, and a completely different person would stand up. Like, less than half the ppl noticed that one too.

    How can someone possibly pay attention to 4 things at once? Yeah I saw the gorilla, yes I got the right number of passes, no I didn`t notice the person leave, but I did notice something changing in the background. Didn`t see what though.

    I will have to remember this next time I`m on a stake out and a Gorilla walks by.

    The Gorilla is like the black cat. Except for bad luck random crap changes instead.

    Uh. Seriously? I noticed that they were all women, 2 blondes, 4 brunettes, 2 that I`d bang, the gorilla, 16 passes, the curtain changing and one of the chicks I`d bang leave the scene. How could you miss any of that?

    After the gorilla left, I noticed that the curtain had changed color and there were only two black players. I didn`t notice while those events happened, but I noticed by the end of the first bit.

    Obviously I spotted the gorilla...then i noticed the color change- but it wasn`t until everyone was walking off stage that I stopped focusing on the white players and realized we were missing a black shirt... JUST in the nick of time. If somebody would have lost a shoe or something... I would have missed it.
