  2. Chabris and Simons wrote a very readable book (titled *The Invisible Gorilla*) about this classic experiment and some of the work it inspired.  Those who missed the gorilla are also likely to be aggressively skeptical when shown the film again and told to look for a gorilla.  The gorilla missers often insist that it cannot the same film they saw before. The illusion that one WOULD HAVE seen the gorilla is powerful.  C and S see similarities between this illusion and some others, such as the illusion that one can multitask effectively.  Some of those illusions have nasty consequences like criminal convictions of innocent people.

    Thanks for a fun way of making the point that creative people are more likely to see the gorilla.  That particular point is not in the book, unless I just missed it while counting passes and gorillas and things to gripe about.
