Inattentional blindness, also called perceptional blindness is a phenomenon that sometimes occurs when people (who are not blind) are unable to see things that are there. There can be different causes of this:

  • Change blindness
  • Humans can only track a number of changes in their environment. They will track the changes that look important to them.
