If you’re unsure where your priorities lie, a new personality test is claiming it could point you in the right direction; based on what you see first in a mind-bending image.
The answer will be one of two things: either the viewer spots a swirl of smoke or the shape of a fetus.
Interestingly, their response may depend on whether they care deeply about what others think about them, or whether they’re more concerned with living a fulfilling life.
According to the psychology guru: “If you first saw the smoke then you care quite a lot what others think of you, and you take your reputation very seriously.”
These people feel an immense amount of pressure to present their best side to others, so they take great pride in being complimented and praised.
“When you hear negative comments being said about you, you’ll dwell on it for a very long time,” added Mia.
With regards to relationships, this type of person often lives in fear of losing the person they care about most.
Meanwhile, those who saw the fetus first are more likely to display a different set of characteristics, as their focus is entirely on being alive and healthy.
“If you first saw the fetus then you have a strong set of moral rules, that you abide by when dealing with people, and situations,” noted Mia.
“Because you are very righteous and have a bottom line, there are certain temptations, that you will never give into, no matter how alluring they are.
These people care less about riches but instead focus on finding stable happiness and peace for themselves and those they love.
Many who spotted the foetus first, agreed with this analysis of their personalities, sharing their agreement in the comments.
“I love ur videos soooo accurate,” wrote one person, while another complemented the psychology guru for her analyses.
Optical illusions are frequently used to test personality attributes in online quizzes, their legitimacy has long been the subject of heated debates.
The tests should be taken with a pinch of salt, as there is no concrete scientific evidence to suggest that a personality type can be determined through a picture.
All in all, they draw on the understanding that the human mind makes assumptions about the world that are different from the truth.
