comment What is the maximum number of objects an average human being can recognize at once?
It is also important to note that subitizing can be confounded with pattern recognition with regard to canonical dot patterns (for example, the dots on the sides of a pair of dice), as those are easier to recognize than any other random arrangement of n objects, given n>3. The fact that it is difficult, if not impossible, to avoid canonical arrangements for n of 4 or less is also important.
