I don't get it - this test is insanely easy, surely?
Though actually I just came upstairs to get something from my room and decided to check my e-mails quickly, which led to opening a tab to DiS, which led to this thread, and now I've taken ten minutes to do lots of things which should have taken me a few seconds. So in a way the test itself was the distraction. Meta, eh.
The bit at the end says that it tests the ability of people to filter out irrelevant information - surely that's what heavy use of the internet does? So a high score indicates a high level of conditioning from searching for information from lots of sources online, surely?
This was the feature that went with the quiz: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/07/technology/07brain.html
I got one wrong because Algeria decided to score. I think people who are put off by blue triangles need help.
well easy, but it would have been harder if the colours had been the other way round i reckon, or if it had alternated which colour you were concentrating on
