Perception Test

Ok here is a very interesting perception test.
Follow these rules as best you can, once you click the video and hit play.
It is important that you try to follow the rules. The first time you watch the video.
Instructions from the University of Illinois Visual Cognition lab.

This link takes you to the basketball video from an experiment by Daniel Simons and Christopher Chabris. When viewing the video, try to count the total number of times that the people wearing white pass the basketball. Do not count the passes made by the people wearing black. When you're done, visit the main lab web site for more information. Please note that this video is copyrighted and is available on this web site for viewing purposes only -- it may not be downloaded, copied, saved or used for any other purpose. If you are interested in using this video in any other context, it is available on DVD from Viscog Productions, Inc. Please see the link below.

Ok, now that you've taken the test.... watch the video again, but don't count the balls.... By the way the first time I saw this was when I was in MBA school... it blew my mind.
