CAN YOU SPOT THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THESE NEARLY IDENTICAL IMAGES?

It’s a lot easier to spot the difference between still images.

Only the most perceptive people can do this!
  • Research suggests we’re not that great at detecting changes in our immediate environment.
  • Across various studies, subjects have failed to notice both subtle and major differences in visual stimuli that were introduced right before their eyes
  • This phenomenon is known as «change blindness» in psychology.
  • Online retailer Lenstore UK recently created an interactive brainteaser to illustrate just how difficult it can be to detect changes in visual stimuli.

Despite how perceptive you may think you are, research has shown that we’re not that great at detecting changes in our immediate environment. Across various studies, subjects have failed to notice both subtle and major differences in visual stimuli that were introduced right before their eyes — even when they were actively looking for changes in a scene.

Psychologists call this phenomenon change blindness. In simplest terms, it occurs when stimuli in our environment «max out» our visual system’s limited capacity for attention. And in the real world, change blindness has been implicated in everything from distracted driving to unreliable eyewitness testimonies.

Online retailer Lenstore UK recently created an interactive brainteaser to illustrate just how difficult it can be to detect changes in our visual environment. The test is made up of five pairs of seemingly identical images, which flicker between an original picture and one that has been altered to include a subtle difference. Your goal is to click on the area of the photo that has been changed within 45 seconds.

Keep reading to see two examples from the complete brainteaser below.
