I'm Ga-Ga for this Guy


Scoot on over to John Medina's blog for this cool experiment.
I have to admit, I da-da'd, then changed my mind. Ears.
No, mind.
Right.
Just my thoughts (I think),
Sean

I heard 'ba ba' the whole time. Does that mean I'm defective, or just that my ears have decided to assert their independence in the face of brain chemistry and not to work with my eyes? :)

Either you have a superior brain, or an inferior brain. Or just Abby Normal's brain.

I was surprised that even after knowing what he was saying, I couldn't hear it clearly while watching.

Reid and I can't make ourselves hear the dada. We hear only baba. I understand why my brain would depend upon sound rather than vision but Reid has perfect vision.

How much does this have to do with the power of suggestion? I tried to make myself hear either "B" or "D", but couldn't. All I heard was an odd swallowing noise. No wonder, he was actually saying "G" while his lips were positioned for a "D". So, what percentile does that put me in? Hmmmm......

Ah, glad to see you're enjoying the work of SPU's own John Medina . . .

I admit to hearing ba-ba on the first go 'round, but I wonder how much the power of suggestion plays into things? If the header did not say "Is he saying 'ba ba' or 'da da'?" would I have perceived it differently?
