The Škoda Fabia Attention Test

Post by Dhammanando »

How is your sati?


Svākkhātaṃ brahmacariyaṃ, sandiṭṭhikam’akālikaṃ,
Yattha amoghā pabbajjā, appamattassa sikkhato.


“The holy life is well proclaimed,
directly visible, immediate,
Where not in vain is the going forth
of one who trains heedfully.”

Not quite as good as the invisible gorilla but still pretty good.

I just noticed some colours changing a noise of someone speaking and a person crossing the road.

Really bad. I noticed the plants on te veranda change near the end. Other than this, I completely missed everything.

Your moonwalking bear is the same idea as the invisible gorilla I mentioned in my first response.

Er...what was the question again? :tongue:

But seriously, it demonstrates that if your visual attention is centred on one object you're less likely to notice changes in the peripheral field. But so what? ;)
By the way I have no interest in cars whatsoever, so I found the whole thing uninteresting from the start.

I showed this to a female.
She spotted the bicycle and the car changes and few more others.
I think women see changes than men.

When I was a married man, I was advised of this frequently. :)

Good question. I am waiting for Ven. Dhammanando to answer this question.
No it is not mindfulness.
Men are good at concentration.
It is just the evolution as a woman or man I suppose.
