The Selective Attention Test

We need more perspective

Don’t believe me?

Have you ever heard of the white gorilla test?

The white gorilla test is a sociological experiment where the participant is told to count sometimes a ball is being thrown around a basketball court in a video. In the middle of it, a white gorilla begins to dance on the screen and hop around.

And the end of the video, the researcher asks what did they see.

Most people don’t see the gorilla.  They just tell the researcher how many basketballs passes they saw.

What do you know?

Remember this next time you are in a meeting. We don’t see the full picture.
