Optical Illusion Reveals Your Personality Depending on What Animal You See First – Did You See a Cat or Mouse?

We’re always looking to learn a little more about ourselves and, by extension, our personalities. Who knew an optical illusion would help? Today’s character traits to be determined are whether you are curious and independent or you tend to be more careful than the average person. All you need to do is look at the interesting image and note which animal you see first. We will also have a second, shorter one to help you get some certainty about the first one! Of course, take this with a nice helping of salt, and have some fun!

Optical Illusion: Cat or Mouse?

For the first optical illusion test, take a look at the image below:

Now, note down which animal you see first. Just to be sure, there are two here. They are a cat and a mouse. You must only note the first one and not anything else! Remember, there’s no right or wrong answer here. Do you have your answer? Here are the explanations:

The Mouse: The image of the smaller is comparatively much smaller in size. So, if you caught it first, it indicates that you tend to be careful with everything. You are also reserved and shy, but that is not to say you are inattentive to everything around you. In fact, the people who spotted the mouse first are also timid and observant. Finally, you are also known to be resourceful and adaptable, usually always capable of solving any difficult situations.

The Cat: The more obvious and bigger animal is the black cat. Seeing this first indicates that you have traits similar to a cat’s. This means you are curious and independent but also playful and mysterious. Just like domesticated cats, you usually liked doing things independently without relying on anyone else. You are inherently curious and will never skip a chance to gain new knowledge and raise questions. You also have no trouble in switching between play and work. As a result, others find themselves attracted to your mysterious vibes.

For the second one, take a look at this image by Vladimir Kush, a Russian artist:

You can see two things first here: the clouds and the red lips. Here are the explanations as follows:

The Red Lips: You have a kind heart and tend to do whatever you can if it means helping others. You will seldom refuse to help a random stranger, regardless of when you are approached for help. Upbeat and sentimental are two fundamental personality traits of yours.

The Clouds: Seeing this first indicates that you tend to be cautious when in the company of other people. You also tend to be careful of what you do and say in that situation. People who know you have pointed out your cynicism. However, the close ones also know how tight your rapport is with them. The fact is that it is not easy for anyone to earn your trust.

So, which one of them resonated with you? Let us know in the comments below! Also, here are some more such personality tests you might enjoy:
