I've been saving this video to share with you on a day when I lacked other things to blog about and, seeing as this seems like one of those days, I'll share the link with you now. :)
You are only supposed to watch this video once. Seriously, just once! Then come back here for further directions.
In the video you will see a group of basketball players, some in white and some in black passing two balls around. Your goal is to count how many times the ball is passed by those wearing white shirts. It‘s that simple. Remember, count just the passes of the ball by those wearing white. Once the movie is over, write down the number of passes you have counted.
Watch the movie HERE before proceeding any further--unless you wish to know what's so interesting about the test before you've taken it (in other words, if you want to ruin it!)....
....Did you watch it yet?
....How many passes did you count?
Now let me ask you something: Did you notice some kind of a critter walking across the screen while the players were tossing the ball around? A mouse maybe, or perhaps a gorilla?
Hmmm... Maybe you'd like to go watch the movie over again.....
I, for one, did not notice anything the first time I watched this, and most of the friends we've shared this with have not either--so don't feel bad! It's just interesting to see how easily we can be deceived by having our attention drawn to other areas, isn't it?
May God help us to be wise!!!!
