Thinking that input from one sense should interfere with input from another sense. Like:
- No, brain, turning on the radio won’t make me less visible to people in other cars
- No, taking out my earbuds won’t make it easier to tell what that weird smell is
The thing is, getting rid of beckground noise does make it easier for me to focus on other things. It’s not a synesthesia thing, it’s a bandwidth thing.
