Change Blindness – Cognitive Psychology Experiment – Take Part!!

Change Blindness – Cognitive Psychology Experiment – Take Part!!

An experiment in Change Blindness, watch the video before reading further:
Courtesy of Wikipedia:-

In visual perception, change blindness is the phenomenon that occurs when a person viewing a visual scene apparently fails to detect large changes in the scene. For change blindness to occur, the change in the scene typically has to coincide with some visual disruption such as a saccade (eye movement) or a brief obscuration of the observed scene or image. When looking at still images, a viewer can experience change blindness if part of the image changes.

  • I noticed it cuz im aware lol

  • LOL xD

  • Evz

    Yeah…..did not see it at all.

  • Could anyone please tell me what is the tittle of this music….i really like it but i cant figure out where to find it -.- thank youu :))

  • what's with the stoopid fkn music!!!!

  • your mom is deeply a sheep

  • I gave up on the counting. The bear was the only thing I cared about at that point.

  • yeah! but if the bear was white….

  • Damn. I got the count right. =

  • You are deeply a lout.

  • SNAP!!!! i didnt see the bear i was so focused on counting the amount of passes

  • nice

  • Just FYI – technically this isn't change blindness. This is inattentional blindness.


  • But in real life situation people might be able to spot the moon walking bear etc. When I say real life I mean, rather than watching this video on youtube, if me or someone watch this in real life then hen or she might be able to spot.
    I think the perceptual analysis might spot this one,

  • What is the title of the song?

  • This is actually called inattentional blindness 🙂

  • No, because the person in the bear suit can't moonwalk for shit.

  • whats the song?!!?!

  • Took 3 times to see it. Second time I was looking in the background and totally missed it.

  • song: Thé à la Menthe – La Caution

  • I think i was too mentally prepared for something to "change" I noticed it the first time. :/

  • Missed 3 passes. Didn't miss the bear though. My brain doesen't care much for numbers …

  • Your brain can only focus on one thing at a time if if you consciously counted the passes again you wont see the bear

  • Look out for cyclists on the road, drivers 🙂

  • That's kinda dumb, I mean, he literally looked like one of the players in black, so you kinda dismiss it even if you notice.

  • I dont see the moonwalking bear. I just see a guy in a custome trying to pop lock and walking back wards, getting in the way while the teams are practicing their passes. What an asshole.

  • In fact, is it inattentional blindness rather than change blindness?

  • It would help if the screen wasn't so dark. I can't see anything. Even the second time I could barely make out the so called moon-walking bear because it's almost black.

  • I said 12

  • I saw the moon walking bear while counting the passes

  • Spotted the moonwalk bear.
    But I thought it was on the black team.

  • NOT an example of "change blindness"! This is an example of inattentional blindness! Change blindness examples are related but quite different. Fix your misleading title.

  • always loved this experiment and the'surprise it has on students

  • I had done this before, but tried to count the passes and I actually missed the bear this time too!

  • here's another experiment for change blindness
