Week 3 Assignment: The Cocktail Party Phenomenon

Worksheet: The Cocktail Party Phenomenon

Assignment Overview

Imagine that you are at an office party, a holiday party, or a gathering of friends at the home of a neighbor and you are engaged in a discussion with a friend. More people are talking behind you, but you are not paying attention to their conversation. Suddenly, you hear your name mentioned by one of the individuals engaged in the conversation behind you. You become unable to concentrate on the discussion, because you are too busy trying to hear what the other people are saying about you. You know you were not deliberately eavesdropping on this conversation, but you know that you heard your name. Is it possible that you were unconsciously eavesdropping?

In this assignment, you will describe the reasons behind a phenomenon referred to as “The Cocktail Party Phenomenon.”
