00:00

00:02

00:13

00:15
their release form okay stop
00:17

00:19
you didn’t let’s run to this one again
00:22
for you I got a form let me just grab
00:24
you a pen alright here we go if you
00:31
caught this one you may be surprised to
00:33
find out you’re in the minority now
00:36
let’s run this one on a few more people
00:38
to see just how many of them catch the
00:40
switch it was somebody I don’t I just
00:44
need you fill out this our release form
00:45
please let me grab you a pen okay here
00:50
we go
00:51
Glenn just sign and date it so where you
00:54
from New Jersey are you doing today
00:57
real good rugged I seen you fill out
00:59
this release one let me grab you a pen
01:00
okay okay there we go
01:04
uh let me just grab you a pen for this
01:09
okay make me sign a waiver for this huh
01:12
yeah none of the next three people catch
01:17
the switch no you may still be doubting
01:20
that you would fall for this one if you
01:21
were there in person what’s your name
01:23
Eva yeah how could you possibly miss a
01:25
person swapping out mid-conversation
01:28
in plain view can you describe the
01:29
person who was here behind the counter
01:30
he had dark hair I think he had a black
01:33
shirt on but I’m not sure I can you
01:35
stand up oh my god it was him and you
01:39
don’t recognize him no no but all I’ve
01:41
never seen you before
01:43
okay he was actually here behind the
01:45
counter when you first came up to the
01:46
counter he’s the one who said I’m the
01:48
duck down and get you a pen oh my god
01:51
are you serious oh that’s totally
01:53
embarrassing it turns out you don’t
01:56
notice changes like this because you
01:58
don’t expect them to occur in a world
02:01
where backgrounds don’t suddenly switch
02:04
objects don’t spontaneously appear and
02:07
people don’t morph into other people
02:09
your brain isn’t prepared to notice when
02:11
these things do happen and it ain’t I
02:13
didn’t even notice that man didn’t cut
02:17
that I didn’t catch at all so what do
02:20
you think would you have noticed these
02:22
person swaps if you’d been there
02:23
sure yeah absolutely
02:26
most people answer yes but Dan’s data
02:29
suggests you have only a one in three
02:32
chance of catching a switch uh what’s
02:34
your name
02:35
in this experiment only a handful of
02:38
people noticed there’s another guy
02:40
underneath the table you’re not first
02:42
time big family get bit someone else
02:44
popped up the takeaway of this
02:46
experiment is not just that we miss
02:48
these sorts of changes but that we think
02:50
we’re going to notice them and that
02:52
illusion of attention is something that
02:54
plays a role in a lot of aspects of our
