Today, just a short video about inattentional blindness. Watch it to the end if you want to learn something, even if you did see the gorilla…

And after the video, you may want to read about inattentional blindness in an article by Daniel Simmons:

“How could they miss something right before their eyes? This form of invisibility depends not on the limits of the eye, but on the limits of the mind. We consciously see only a small subset of our visual world, and when our attention is focused on one thing, we fail to notice other, unexpected things around us—including those we might want to see. Indeed, most of us are unaware of the limits of our attention—and therein lies the real danger. ”
