Do you have Change blindness?

We often talk in our training about the concept of changing ones intention, changes the person’s attention and then we focus on certain aspects in our field of view. Our attention fixing is both useful (focussed), but also limiting because we miss very obvious changes in the world around us too. Using our peripheral vision can assist us in seeing larger patterns, but we may miss something that was meant to be obvious. See what you notice as you watch the video and the summary after that shows what you might have missed.

Change blindness is a phenomenon in which a very large change in a picture will not be seen by a viewer, if the change is accompanied by a visual disturbance that prevents attention from going to the change location.

Inattentional blindness is at the basis of one of the main causes of road accidents: people “Look but fail to see” (LBFTS) some quite obvious and perfectly visible obstruction in the road.

I like this quote:

“Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.” Albert Einstein

How we don't always see what is there

Full atricle – neurophilosophy Category: Neuroscience • Vision, Posted on: November 6, 2009 12:50 PM, by Mo A novel temporal illusion, in which the cause of an event is perceived to occur after the event itself, provides some insight into the brain mechanisms underlying conscious perception. The illusion, described in the journal Current Biology by a team of researchers from France, suggests that the unconscious representation of a visual object is processed for around one tenth of a second before it enters conscious awareness. Chien-Te Wu and his colleagues at the Brain and Cognition Research Centre in Toulouse used a … Continue reading How we don't always see what is there
