The mind is a treacherous device

A while back in my psycolinguistics class, we were shown a video, that I thought was rather interesting. It’s a video that plays a trick on the mind.

If you don’t want to ruin it for yourself, follow these guidelines:

  • First time you watch the video, focus on counting the number of times the members of the white team catch their ball. It”s very important that you count the right number.
  • then watch the video again without counting the catches made by the white team

The video is contained in a Java applet and it will only play if you have Java installed on your machine (and active in your browser). The applet is fairly large (7MB) so it may take a while to load.
