Yanni vs Laurel
« on: May 17, 2018, 09:44:40 PM »
I'm sure many of you have heard this, but for those who haven't it's one of those brain things.  Do you hear "Yanni" or "Laurel" in the video?
! No longer available



I started classes with this today:  the first time I heard it without a doubt I heard "Yanni", the second class I heard "Laurel", and now I hear "Laurel" every time.  Fun stuff.

Click bait.
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Show up on time, do your best and don't grumble about the outcome.

Laurel. First and always. Fight me.


Actually, I wish someone had played it first and asked what I heard, instead of pre-programming one or the other? What if I heard "yacht" or "fishwobblermangrove"?

It's just a weird thing because of missing some frequencies; if you hear yanni (on a full bandwidth speaker), you have hearing loss. Period. End of story.

This vid would suggest the opposite:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yDiXQl7grPQ

Those with hearing loss (difficulty hearing higher frequencies) will hear Laurel. Those without hearing loss will hear Yanni because they're picking up the higher frequencies.
