Can you actually tell the different between a 4K and a 1080 computer monitor with normal viewing distance?

I am sure if we look at it extremely close then we can tell the different, but how about a 24"-30" computer monitor with normal viewing distance? And for these 2 cases:
1. 4K or higher resolution photo/video
2. gaming

1.Yes, definitely.
2. On 24": probably* not, 30" definitely.

*Probably because I have never tried a 4K 24" monitor before.

And with bigger monitors, 27"+, the increased work space of 1440p and 4k, is a massive improvement.

I have a 27 inch and @ 1080p gaming i can see those jaggies clearly. Even at 4k jaggies are present, but not as pronounced.
