Optical illusions are one of the best tools that psychologists have long used to detect the inner workings of the mind. But now many people do not have to go to a psychologist because they can find answers to many conditions in their homes using these tools with little knowledge about them.
These tools have long been used in many homes, where children are grouped and played, and among the most famous books is the Magic Eye. Revealing the secret in pictures can take hours, which means a lot of time spent on fun and solving useful puzzles.
Growing up, people’s fascination grows, and then people, when they come across optical illusions, become intrigued by visual deception, but now focused on understanding their work and what they can discover about us. The values of these tools were expressed by people on social media on the occasion of The Great Dress Debate from 2015, in which thousands of people declared their loyalty to them.
Check Out These 8 Examples:
Optical Illusion #1
If a woman is first noticed: Since the woman is shown obeying, with her knees bent, her arms bent forward, her hand above her head defending her, anyone who first notices this picture may be the group of people who are constantly defending themselves in life, leading them to situations of emotional and mental exhaustion.
Skull: It means that the people who first notice this at the moment are facing some significant challenges in their life and are struggling to find a solution to solve them effectively. The people of this group, therefore, feel trapped and even hopeless, but they should not give up, because this temptation to walk through fire will create an even stronger version of themselves when they emerge and find themselves on the better side.
Optical Illusion #2
Old Man: Those who notice this are empathetic people, who show compassion for everything that comes into their lives. They are extremely creative people, always observing the beauty and colors of the world around them, which positivity should not be lost.
Woman: These personalities are guided by the analytical side of their brain, and they perceive the world as black or white, neglecting everything in the gray spectrum around them. They need to be more open to seeing all the facts, accepting the individuality of others in their lives, which will help them make the world a better place to live.
Optical Illusion #3
Snake: These are highly qualified personalities and esteemed leaders among their peers. They take responsibility, encourage those around them, and express gratitude and respect to those who join them.
Arms: These are analytical and critical people, who take the time to fully assess the situation before they start dealing with it. This can slow them down, but these people can catch any holes in their plans or mistakes made before it gets too late.
Optical Illusion #4
Pillars: People who see pillars prefer to live their lives safely in their comfort zone and game where they know they can succeed. If they want to succeed, they can break through and truly feel the joys of success and achievement in life.
Men Between Pillars: Personalities who see men live adventurously and excitedly, moving from one challenge to another and feeding on adrenaline. They get the idea to settle into a boring, routine life more than anything else and benefit from finding some element of routine and normality.
Optical Illusion #5
Car: These personalities highly value their freedom and are able to do whatever comes naturally to their lives. They live for the opportunity to experience new things and constantly step out of their comfort zone.
A man with binoculars: They focus on the bigger picture, forgetting the finer details, regardless of the situation. While this can help them absorb information quickly, it can also create problems for them in those moments when fine points are more important.
Letter A: This is the most common option to notice. The personalities are more incredibly focused on even the smallest details in everything they do. They are extremely intuitive and can read the situation better than almost anyone. They also have a way to effectively read the people around them.
Optical Illusion #6
Faces: Persons who see faces are cheerful and outgoing. They use every moment of their lives to socialize and make new friends, drawing energy from these interactions. By no means do they like to be alone, but this way of thinking hinders them from creating real, lasting relationships.
Candlestick: They are quiet and closed in on themselves, and feel best in the peace of their own home. In the home, they can selectively invite those who feel they are worth their time and effort. They prioritize quality over quantity over friends, focusing on those they love.
Optical Illusion #7
Crocodile: People who see crocodiles are really practical and focused, refusing to spend more time on anything they don’t consider to be of immediate importance. They try to avoid risks whenever possible and stick to familiar paths that they know will pass them by.
Ship: These personalities are extremely attentive, finding joy in the little things in their lives. They are independent and unique, so they give the impression of being eccentric. They do not allow anyone to persuade them to change their attitudes because their creativity will enable them to succeed in life.
Optical Illusion #8
A woman who sees a man’s face: They are highly focused on the opposite sex and have a high intimacy. Those who are currently in a relationship in which they do not feel fully satisfied and fulfilled, emphasize this desire to seek that satisfaction. They must not let this be one area that will become their obsession because it can quickly take over everything they do.
A man who sees a man’s face: He struggles with his relationships with other people around him, including his partner, colleagues, friends, and even with strangers he meets. Such personalities need to take some time to focus on the skills of their people because networking with others can be very helpful in achieving a happy life.
A woman who sees a woman’s face: She is confident and self-confident, knowing who she is and not afraid to go against the norm if that’s what feels natural. These personalities are positive, they bring light into every room they enter.
A man who sees a woman’s face: He is looking for someone to spend his life with, and this quest becomes a top priority in his life. To succeed in that, that personality should not be forced, because the best relationships are those that naturally arise and develop. If they are in a relationship, it is a sign that these personalities are happy and always have them in mind.
Various techniques are used to interpret these illusions, such as the most well-known personality tests, the Myers-Briggs-type indicator (MBTI), and the Minnesota Multiphase Personality Inventory (MMPI).
The Myers Briggs Type Indicator
This best-known personality test was developed in the 1940s by Katharine Cook Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers (her daughter). It contains 93-question that are used for placing people into one of 16 personality types, together with its own strengths and weaknesses. The test is based on using four psychological functions – sensation, intuition, feeling, and thinking. This test is used in about 90% of companies during their recruitment process.
Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory
It contains a 567-question true-false assessment and has been used since 1939 when it was invented by Hathaway and McKinley. It is used for analyzing personalities and psychopathology across 10 scales, including hysteria, depression, paranoia, hypochondriasis, psychopathic deviate, masculinity/femininity, psychasthenia, schizophrenia, hypomania, social introversion.
Whilst often used for the diagnosis of mental illness, the test has proved useful in assessing the psychological stability of people applying to high-risk and stressful professions, including the army.
Other Personality Tests
It was designed by Walter Clark in 1940, wanting to measure dominance, influence, stability, and conscientiousness. It consists of 28 questions and assists organizations in managing and developing leadership, as well as in communicating and managing conflict. The answer to each question is one word that answers the most and another that is the least similar to them.
b) The Caliper Profile
This Australian company has worked with 30,000 companies worldwide to recruit and develop its teams by measuring their potential for specific roles. Respondents need to answer 180 multi-choice questions and it takes about two hours.
c) The SHL Occupational Personality Questionnaire
The test includes 104 questions that assess 32 characteristics designed to show employers how behavioral traits affect employee performance at work. There are several statements for each question and statements are selected that best and least describe the person who answers. The test provides a comprehensive report for the employer, which facilitates a direct comparison of job candidates.
d) Hogan Personality Inventory
It is created by Hogan and Hogan in the 1980s trying to measure personality across key behavioral tendencies, such as adjustment, sociability, and prudence. It contains 206 questions and has been taken by over 500,000 candidates worldwide. Numerous companies have used it for hiring, professional development, retention, and leadership training.
e) Keirsey Temperament Sorter
This test is derived from Hippocrates’ 460BC theory that human beings have a persona comprised of four distinct temperaments, such as artisan, guardian, idealist, and rational.
It helps to outline 16 personality types (mirroring Myers Briggs) and has been used by the Bank of America and the US air force.
