The First Thing You See In These Photos Says A Lot About Your Current Situation

What does this fun quiz say about you?

There are a lot of different types of personality tests, some more scientific than others. While many are very concise, like the Meyers-Briggs personality test, the hallmark of a good online personality test is that it's fun to take!

One of my favorite types of personality tests is based on cool optical illusions. An optical illusion is an illusion caused by crossed wires in your brain. Information is gathered by the eye and processed by the brain, but optical illusions can often be very different than how our brains initially perceive them.

There are three types of optical illusion: literal optical illusions that create images different from the objects that make them; cognitive illusions, which are the result of unconscious inferences; and physiological illusions, caused by excessive stimulation of some type or another.

Each one of the illusions below will employ a different type of cool optical illusion, and the results, namely what you see first, will shed some light on the way your brain thinks and your personality works.

Optical Illusion #1

Take a good look at the above image. What did you see?

If you saw a car, that probably means that your freedom is important to you. The ability to hit the road, meet new people, see new places, and experience new things is near and dear to your heart. You usually take life at your own pace and do what comes naturally.

If you saw a man with binoculars, it indicates that you tend to be more analytical. You look at the bigger picture and disregard minor details for the most part. You're usually able to learn visually and absorb information quickly. You might want to make sure you pay attention to detail more consciously.

If you saw the letter A, which is arguably the most difficult thing to see first in the image, it means you have an eagle eye unmatched by most. You tend to see the little details and are a little more intuitive than people who saw a man with binoculars or a car.

Optical Illusion #2

Take a look at the image above. What do you see?

If you saw a crocodile, it means that you're probably looking at the bigger picture. You might be a little bit dismissive by nature, not looking too closely at things that don't immediately strike you as important. You are probably very practical and not much of a risk-taker. You live a life more on the cautious side and don't make much room for new things.

If you saw a boat, you've got a great eye for small details and few things are able to get past you without you noticing. You tend to be more unique, quirky, and creative than most. But be careful that you don't get mired in little details, especially if you're an artist or a student.

Optical Illusion #3

Take a look at the line drawing above. What do you see?

If you saw an old man, it indicates that you are a gentler, more sensitive person who can feel the feelings of others remarkably well. And because you saw the old man first, it means that you are more than likely using the right side of your brain more than the left. That's the more creative hemisphere, indicating you're an artistic person.

If you saw the woman first, it means you're a fair amount more thoughtful and analytical, perhaps even calculating compared to those who see an old man. You probably use your left brain more so than the right brain. But your cold, analytical thinking can be used for good. Don't try to suppress the side of you that wants to believe in the best in people, to heal people, and to create a better world.
