Ted Talk - Apollo Robbins

This Ted Talk is about misdirection and how we don't notice things that are right in front of us but we believe we are aware of them. This Ted talk stuck out to me because it really makes you stop and realize how much we aren't aware of even though we see it in our day to day lives. This Ted talk does are really well job of demonstrating how he is able to change peoples focus with out them noticing what he is doing. During this Ted talk he demonstrates how he can use misdirection to change someones focus and easily pickpockets him without him noticing what has happened until he is told. This really makes you want to pay more attention to detail with things around you after seeing how easily he was able to misdirect people. This demonstrates how attention is an important thing that people don't take into consideration. At the end of this talk he asks what you would do with the power to control someones attention which I believe is a very interesting question. I honestly don't know what I would do with the power to control someones attention but I am curious as too what other people would do with that power.
