Two Views (portrait vs. landscape) of the Same Abstract
First, for context (what are we looking at?), here’s how the abstract was made
Rotating seem “right” to me at the time (two years ago)
Subconscious at work? I neither knew nor thought about “memorable” then.
Above – Memorability: High (score: 0.808 )
Below – Memorability: Medium (score: 0.627)
These scores are the probability that, having seen the image previously, you’d remember it when seen later. 81% vs 63% is quite a difference.
Landscapes, as a genre, are notoriously non-memorable – even iconic landscapes.
Could the different scores for these images be due to the fact that the brain subconsciously sees the 2nd image for what it really is & says “landscape, forget it”?
