What Do You See First? Optical Illusion Shows if You are ‘Strong-Willed and Stubborn’ or ‘Caring and Likable’

Optical illusions are more than simple brain teasers. They are a great test of your eyesight. In some cases, they are also excellent ways of determining your personality traits. This is helpful, especially in cases where you may not have been sure of having those traits in the first place. Recently, TikToker Mia Yillin posted an illusion that can indicate if we are someone stubborn and stick to a task or goal, come heaven or hell, or if we like keeping to ourselves and avoiding mind games.

Mia Yillin, by the way, is famous on TikTok for her excellent insight into personality traits through such interesting optical illusions. Presently, she has over 450,000 followers. As per her explanation, she claims that the illusion can also indicate if we are romantic or picky regarding people whom we call friends.

Once you have seen it, it is important to remember what you saw at first glance. Noted? Then, if you have not noticed everything in the picture, it shows a wine glass and two forks. The two forms are arranged in a way that creates the illusion of the wine glass. Now, here are the explanations according to what you saw first:

The Forks: Mia explains that seeing this first indicates that you are someone strong-willed and quite stubborn. This means that once you choose a goal, you will not stop no matter what until that goal is attained. You prefer to be as free as possible and like the romantic clichés in life. However, you will always choose the other person’s well-being rather than holding them back for the sake of love.

The Wine Glass: According to Mia, this means that you are likable and caring. In fact, you are so likable that you always get people who want to be closely acquainted with you. However, at the same time, you are usually pretty choosy with who gets into your innermost circle. Of course, the conditions to get in are also pretty difficult. You dislike anyone who participates or favors mind games. However, you avoid exposing them so you usually distance yourself silently from such people.

The Internet’s Reaction

The post’s comments were flooded with viewers who had nothing but praise for Mia’s accuracy. One of them said, “Wow, this is super accurate”. Another person commented, “Girl why are you so true it felt like you had looked at my life”. A third praise went, “I saw the forks and everything you said is true”.
