As amazing as the powers of human perception may be, we rarely ever stop to think about them, let alone even notice that we’re actually perceiving things at any given moment in time. That may sound or read like a mouth full, but once you take this fun quiz, it’ll all make sense and you’ll both see and get where I’m coming from.
Take a look at the images featured here and try to make sense of what they are presenting to you. If they throw you for a loop or otherwise leave you feeling stumped and confused, you’re not alone. These optical illusions are designed to test your powers of perception and will make your brain, eyes, and mind work overtime. This quiz was compiled from a mix of some of the best and most confusing optical illusions the world has to offer. Even people who know the ‘secrets’ behind them still manage to get tripped up by the pictures, their effect is automatic!
Optical illusions are sights and images which appear to totally disagree with the limits of physical reality. Things seem to not look as they should or how we expect them to and when our brains realize this they explode with activity and light up, working overtime to try and figure it all out. In fact, our brains love taking on a new challenge, especially visually confusing ones. According to Aude Oliva, a cognitive research scientist at MIT, “Anything that is new and surprising is something we naturally like because it means that we may learn something from it.” In light of that, it’s easy to understand why so many of us love and enjoy looking at optical illusions.
Which brings us back to where this all started, on the point of how people barely notice what they’re actually looking at and perceiving. That is of course until something appears off, like with visual illusions, and the ones here will make your brain snap to attention. So go ahead and check out the images below, they’re by far the most fun way to exercise your mind and fool your senses. By the end of it all, you’ll be questioning what you’re seeing, enjoy!
