Walter Schulte’s table of training visual attention

Knowledge of the world is impossible without attention. Any activity is accompanied by concentration and constant analysis of the state of the object, its phenomena and its properties. One of the most popular methods of developing attention, and this is the basis of our games, are Schulte tables. There are many paper and online variations of this technique.

The methodology “Finding Numbers” or “Schulte Table” was originally developed as a psycho-diagnostic test for studying the properties of attention by the German psychiatrist and psychotherapist Walter Schulte (1910 – 1972).

Originally developed in engineering psychology, the sample was used to assess the effectiveness and speed of search movements in the presence of vision. The technique is a table or matrix consisting of 25 cells (5 vertically and 5 horizontally). Each cell contains a random number from 1 to 25. The challenge is to find the numbers in direct sequence from 1 to 25, or vice versa – from 25 to 1, as quickly as possible.

This method can be used for younger students. An interesting effect comes from training. First of all, the training develops voluntary attention and focus of visual attention. For quick reading of the technique, the Schulte table helps to keep the focus of attention on several objects at the same time.
