Don't need your quiz to tell me that I'm completely unobservant.

That's not to say I miss details I look for, but rather that I'm generally not looking.

Lack of interest.

I actually didn't know about half of these. 9/15.






As far as the answers go, if you don't already know then a correct guess doesn't really count as being observant.

I am not observant when it comes to stuff like this, but I tend to be pretty observant in social situations. I have a bad habit of listening to other peoples conversations and I typically know when friends when friends are in moods or when there going through something.

I do think I know a lot of these, I didn't actually look at all of the questions though, I will in a bit. I can tell you I don't know the phone ones though. I can't remember the last time I looked at an actual phone dial.

Congrats to neih and Pilz-E. The rest of you seem to have completely missed the point.

I guess my OCD makes me realize all this stuff, but it was kind of startling to see some of the missed ones.

But, I am observant.
