How long does it take you to spot the T hidden in this maze of Ls?

What if you were told that it’s not a red letter?

However, strangely, after the participants in the study had some practice they were able to find the odd letter much more rapidly than those who had not been given a colour to ignore.

It seems the more we practise ‘ignoring’ things, the better we get at finding what we’re looking for.
