SAVVY COUNTER CULTURE
I love this use of The Dress controversy. (Remember the one posted on Tumblr by a 21-year-old singer from Scotland that Broke the Internet?!?) Well, it was re-cut into a moneymaker for the coffee shop counter culture. Yay!!
I don’t know the results of the experiment, but, if I find out which color scheme won, I’ll let you know. For now, though, the researcher claims that this spontaneous study reveals that we can’t fully trust our brains. They alter our perception in order to keep things consistent. Memories are even less reliable, she states. I find it fascinating how much neuroscience is becoming real for people through this seemingly innocent post by one curious woman seeking fashion feedback.
The Dress … and tips! Psych study being run by local coffee shop: Relationship between color perception and tipping behavior.
Just for the record: My eyes must be ambidextrous, if that’s even possible!! I first saw white & gold. Then, the dress morphed into blue & tobacco-brown.
