That was a smart choice not to bet. The same thing had happened with mathematicians and physicists

I do note that the people who got fooled were a bunch of shrinks. Perhaps it would not happen with physicists or biologists, though I would not bet on it... :-)

In a related experiment researches hired an actor to read a lecture instead of renowned scientist. He did it and even answered questions. Nobody noticed anything wrong.

So the scientific content of a scientific lecture is irrelevant. Actually I suspect that the situation is more gross in science since I do not believe that a person who takes a musical instrument for the first time can win any music competition.

Further food for thought:

The sound of music… is irrelevant

Short version: During music competitions, people seem to judge the performances more on visual cues than on aural ones!

As far as I know, modern digital pianos have such excellent sound that even experts cannot hear any difference between them and mechanical ones.

Another issue which came up on a music message board that I am a member of: should boy choirs take in girls? Is there a meaningful difference between the voices of prepubescent boys and girls? I don't know whether any scientific research has been done on the issue, but perhaps the people who choose potential choristers during auditions should not see who is singing.

Interesting. This reminded me of the email I got five years ago

Hi,

I really enjoyed your quizzes. I thought of some other fun ones that
could be included. Obviously this one requires quite a bit of  fieldwork,
but it would be interesting to see what percentage of the  population
could tell the difference between a student violin and a  Stradivarius or
a console piano and a Bosendorfer. Secondly in the  same vain as the midi
sound example, it would be neat to see how many  people could
differentiate someone playing an acoustic and digital  piano. Thanks for
the neat site,

Afrooz
