I once gave a quiz question, what is the out come of a projective measurement |0><0| on state |1>. Most of the students answered the measurement destroys the state, of course this is wrong, the correct answer is final state remains unchanged i.e., |1>, the projection fails. Somehow it was difficult to drill this fact into the students, your post definitely helps.
