Awareness Test (I failed miserably)#1
Posted: 3/25/08 at 10:16am
I totally failed. Failed with flying colors.

(NOTE: If you do it, please don't ruin it for others by writing the answer on this thread. Let them try to count for themselves.)

Awareness Test
I starred in a short film called Magnetic Personality. Check it out!

I failed, too. But I've also never done what it told me not to do, so we'll call it a D+. re: Awareness Test

I didn't fail. I counted the right number of passes. That's what the test was for.

Can't say any more lest I drop a spoiler, but it is kind of a cheat, I think.

I was one over....and yes, I totally missed...the thing.
"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. ~ Muhammad Ali

I counted wrong. I think I got one over as well... Makes me wonder if it's incorrect... Maybe I'll watch it again later to check.

I missed the other thing even in the replay.

I counted correctly, but missed...it.

Nevertheless, the test was to count passes, so I'd like to think I passed anyway.

Count me in the "Counted correctly, but ..." camp.

Taz, I'm still laughing at that one.

I counted the right amount, but...yeah.

There was something similar to this on Discovery Channel's "Human Body" series...I'll try to find it on YouTube. It was hilarious.

The trick is at the end of this video: http://youtube.com/watch?v=o4Y0rwDPWlY&feature=related (the stuff about optical illusions starts halfway through, it's really interesting)

And the explanation is at the beginning of this video: http://youtube.com/watch?v=1sayrYYk7gA&feature=related

Well, this is designed to trick you, so why be surprised that it did? I counted right, but there was one that was negligable that I counted but was unsure about...thus the several people who counted one off.

I saw a white girl pass it to a black guy, but I don't think that counts.

If there ever was proof for how we see what we wanna see (aka, our reality is social construct), then this is it. Scientific method be damned. It's all creativity, isn't it?
