On cognitive blindspots

I’m a big fan of magic and mentalism, partially because it’s great entertainment but perhaps even more so because it’s so deeply rooted in psychology. Magic relies on our  brains functioning a certain way or the trick wouldn’t work. Kyle Eschen did a really good talk about those exact two things, which made me very happy. He’s also a wonderfully funny, dry humor kind of guy so if you enjoy this make sure to check out other videos with him, especially from when he started out. A real star.
