What exactly are we aware of?

So you’ve all seen the typical awareness test where they throw the ball back and forth and youre too focused on counting the amount of times it goes back and forth that you miss the gorilla in the middle. Or the one where they switch so many things in on scenario but you miss exactly what they change. Well check out this one. It shows that we are too busy listening to the phone conversation that we miss out on the things that go missing. Although a little more obvious, it connects to cognitive psychology because it shows how our mind works. I chose it because it was a really interesting twist on what we have already seen.
