Observation Skills

To become a successful Shadow Shopper you must train yourself in the art of detailed observation. Try the following test - its just for fun, but the results may surprise you!

- Part 1 -

Here is your task:

Without looking at your wrist watch draw a picture of it.

Put in as many details as you can - the shape, the numbers, the color and all the details on the face.



STOP HERE AND DRAW YOUR WATCH



Finished?

Harder than you thought, wasn't it? Most people who do this test have trouble putting in all the details so don't worry - it's quite normal!

Most people are amazed at how much they don't know about something they look at many times every day.

So how accurate were you? On a scale of 1 to 10 what would you have scored?

How Does This Happen?

Interesting, isn't it? You look at your watch many times a day, and you don't know exactly what it looks like?

WHY? Because we look at the watch for a reason.

We look at our watch to find out the time - that is what is important to us. That's what we are looking for and that is what we see and remember.

We (as humans) are 'programmed' to look for specific information.

Of course, we see everything else - the face, the numbers, the writing - but as it is not important to us we don't remember it.

Now - the second part of the test. Ready?

- Part 2 -

Look at your watch again then put it away.

Put it underneath something where it is hidden from you. Don't read any further until you have looked at it and then put it away where you can no longer see it.
