Personality tests can be a very interesting thing to take part in.
There are many different types of personality test and though many are concise and thorough, like the Myers-Briggs personality test, a trade mark of a good personality test, is that it’s not only informative, but fun!
One of our personal favorite types of personality tests, are optical illusions.
An optical illusion is an illusion that is caused when the wires in your brain gets crossed.
Our brains process millions of bits of information a second from what your eyes see, to interpret what you are seeing.
And not all of that information gets processed correctly.
Sometimes, when there’s a lot of data to process our brains will make the quick decisions to prioritize the things we think are most important, and only show those things to us.
It’s similar to when athletes say they “get in the zone” and the only thing that exist is their current objective.
Everything else fades away and all that is left is what we deem most important.
A good optical illusion takes advantage of this process of your brain, and flips things around to reveal things about yourself that can only be discovered through the split second decisions your brain makes, when first looking at an image.
Each image below is created to target a different part of your personality. This will help shed light on many different aspects of your psyche, and give you a better understanding of yourself.

If you saw the boat..
