From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Distraction is the process of trying to change or get the attention of an individual or group from one area to another. This is done so that people can move from one place to another without the target noticing the person. Distraction is caused by: the lack of ability to pay attention; lack of interest in the object of attention; or the great intensity, novelty or attractiveness of something other than the object of attention.[1]
