 +===== Abstract =====
 +In order to establish a search asymmetry, one must run an experiment
 +with a symmetric design and get asymmetric results. Given an asymmetric
 +design, one expects asymmetric results and such results do not imply an
 +asymmetry in the search mechanisms. In this paper I argue that a number
 +of experiments purporting to show search asymmetries contain built-in
 +design asymmetries. A saliency model of visual search predicts the results
 +of these experiments using only a simple measure of target-distractor
 +similarity, without reliance on asymmetric search mechanisms. These
 +results have implications for search mechanisms and for other
 +experiments purporting to show search asymmetries.
