The neat pictures used here are what’s known as ambiguous images or reversible figures. They are a type of optical illusion which can be viewed correctly in multiple ways. That’s because ambiguous images are pictures that take advantage of how we perceive things visually and interpret them spatially.
As such, they can be viewed in more than just one way since they’re capable of producing multiple images, all of which happen to be accurate. What you see ultimately comes down to your perception and depends on your personality type.
One of the most famous ambiguous images of all time is the duck-rabbit illusion, it’s an image that can be viewed as a duck or a rabbit and it’s over one hundred years old. It was originally published as a cartoon in a 1892 edition of Harper’s Weekly.
Then in 1899 the American psychologist Joseph Jastrow brought it back from obscurity when he was studying human perception and researching how mental activity was related to it. Jastrow used the picture to famously illustrate one of his biggest findings, that people see not only with their eyes, but also their minds.
In addition, he found that the people who could change their perception between the duck and the rabbit with ease had faster working brains than those who were slower or had difficulty when switching between the two animals. He later determined that the quicker a person is able to see the image change, the more creative they are.
These pictures are all ambiguous and they can help assess how creative, stable, or optimistic an individual you likely are by looking at what you see first. Try it out and see if it pegs your personality correctly! Don’t forget to pass this test on with friends and family and hopefully you learned something cool from all this. Good luck and enjoy!
