Meanwhile the brand new orders rather than do.
-- Brain games promises.
Have you second guessing your answers to some of the world's simplest questions.
Host and self proclaimed wonder junkie Jason -- is here to try and stump -- which shouldn't be too hard hi Jason hey how are you guys think you for having me so tell the the premise of this -- yes so basically the show uses these perceptual Xperia men's these cognitive hacks basically optical illusions to create a crack.
In how you perceive reality.
So the games are used to create that feeling of doubt that feeling that what you see is not always what you get branded the group that that serves as a way to -- -- to want to learn about the brain activity.
This show is great you I can hear it and for you folks at home if you've not seen it.
You've got some little riddles and stuff you're gonna put us through our paces what's the first yes and here's an example of one of the bring -- play along and home.
So so so the brain receives incomplete information from the world and likes to complete that information we can we can -- you.
To show you the way in which you -- perceive reality a lot of times -- one of the riddles is.
Mary's mother has four daughters you can answer this -- I think we did this before you.
Cheney Mary's mother has four daughters April -- June and July okay.
Now that's what we would have -- up there now that's -- we would have expected you to say because I just you know who has four -- April may -- you were you see a pattern when a complete that pattern that you actually listen to the whole question the question is.
Meet -- mother.
Has -- daughters.
My name's April may.
Now but -- an injury you've been primed with the pattern April may and June in order for you to say July but because of the -- desire to complete patterns -- frequently misses.
The big picture Alina this is this my life in capsule this is -- -- -- Yeah yeah I yeah I here's another question it sounds something like this it sits in the back of my head it's going to be here any second.
-- I tell your son Alan and it's another religious -- -- giving your greatest -- -- so I don't know we ask people is how many of each kind of animal war in Moses dark.
You remember there -- yeah okay we don't know the total number of well how many of each of each guy it was.
Yet to doesn't get enough of his noted client -- what you -- -- the hall.
Well yeah -- going to split the ocean there you go there were praying that the brain goes directly related media and to -- A bit but again this is one of example the brain here -- IR.
It has animals and once -- complete that pattern -- the complete information it doesn't listen to the whole thing for the whole thing is that you know.
Even though the brain is the most complicated object in the universe -- had these built in perceptual shortcomings.
It's trying to be as efficient as it can we highlight those shortcomings as a way to teach you about your break that you your genius at this -- his thing -- hardly kids watching the -- these mindless shows yet you put it on you actually make love of learning -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- program -- -- -- we've got one -- example yes -- -- -- -- -- -- the football and -- -- -- a intentional blindness -- -- -- -- of the -- so let's -- the first -- for ten -- -- -- -- -- the -- As they fly through the screen.
Do your best.
That's set it 101214.
Has been working point seven but I OOK -- And there.
So how many did you cast 27 OK okay especially in the correct answer but that's not the point to be experiment but -- -- -- that you've been primed.
To focus on the -- as -- fly through the screen you fail to realize that the answer was written up text.
In the middle of the screen the whole time.
I am and see -- early now.
And I did all seven points of the test like ours says its -- read everything before you answer anything and -- ink and of course you didn't and you answered all the questions the last thing on -- was you -- need to answer any claims.
You think I'm gonna show it to yes that's this is the very same thing being the idea again intentional blind as you open a situation where you can't buy your car keys and then -- like right in front -- -- In this situation we'd actually prime you buy them to count the football's the fact is used Clinton's exit of the foothills even though this early in the middle the -- -- that is currently taking it as quick Evelyn -- version of -- -- get -- -- You get past that offers are multitasking is a -- physically emotionally you can only focus on one thing at once again yeah its agents last.
Asked if the -- -- -- -- 24.
But we have two more left right -- -- in the tonight at 9 PM National Geographic channel in the next Monday 9 PM we show that we're earlier you had you'd twice that and you knew he had -- and humiliating -- This is on the success of the senior -- but I do love it gives you give our best and Moses and if you're -- are no.
