    I remember the first time I watched the gorilla video. It went something like this:

    "One... Two... Three... Four... Five... Six... 'Why is there a gorilla?' Seven... 'Why is it dancing?' Eight....."

    I'm just going off my memory of the video. I think there are other iterations of it, but the concept is the same. Luckily for me I'm ADD enough that I notice the weirdest things. My wife just has to shake her head at me sometimes, we'll be talking about something and I'll notice a car I really like. I'll turn my head and watch it while making a comment, and she'll give me that look. But I can quote back to her what she said without fail. Maybe I'm just weird; I can split my attention.

    I worked for a state correctional agency for several years, and was lucky to have good training. I worked outside of a facility so my offenders were much more of a threat to me. I work as a probation offcier now. It is almost second nature for me when I approach somebody or they are in my field of view to give them a visual once over. I notice the color of their belt or what kind of shoes they are wearing etc. I am lucky to have an almost photographic memory. I cant watch the videos here at work so I will check them out tonight at home. I will be interested to se how well I do.

    Yeah, I noticed the gorilla about half way through because I lost count of the ball and said "forget it.." as soon as I stopped counting the balls, I saw the gorilla standing there.

    I caught the "abrupt" changes in most of the videos. Likewise, I did well on the counting videos. The gradual changes or the more minor background changes, not so much. I think some of it may be that we are exposed to crappy video and movies all the time and filter out any but the most gross editing mistakes. The other part is what lima pointed out, our expectations. I remember a study from college that implied part of why hangovers are so bad is that our normal filtering process is impaired for the duration of the hangover, making sensory inputs too much - in other words, the lights, sounds and pain aren't that bad, its just your brain temporarily can't filter what it normally does. We need that filtering to function normally.
