Can we trust our perception?
In an experiment conducted by the psychologists Simons and Levin in 1998, some subjects were involved in a fake conversation with a stranger. This conversation was briefly interrupted by two construction workers carrying a door between them in such a way that their view was briefly blocked.
Without the knowledge of the test person, the conversation partner was exchanged, which was not noticed by many test persons when they continued the conversation afterwards.
Since the test persons had previously looked directly at the interlocutor and this was only interrupted very briefly, it is assumed that an erroneous perception is not basically due to a lack of attention, but to underlying expectations.
In such a situation, one simply does not expect that a conversation partner will be exchanged and therefore does not necessarily notice the exchange.
