I recieved this in an email from a friend and was completely puzled by these tricks! Scroll down carefully and do not read the answers below the pictures until you are done:

This is not a test - just a phenomenon.
All readings are explained.

1.Read out loud the text inside the triangle below:

More than likely you said, 'A bird in the bush,'
If this IS what YOU said, then you failed to see that the word THE is repeated twice!
Sorry, look again.:))

2.Next, let's play with some words.
What do you see?

In black you can read the word GOOD, in white the word EVIL (inside each black letter is a white letter).
It's all very physiological too, because it visualizes the concept that good can't exist without evil (or the absence of good is evil).

3.Now, what do you see?

You may not see it at first, but the white spaces read the word optical, the blue landscape reads the word illusion.

Look again!

Can you see why this painting is called an optical illusion?:)

4.What do you see here?

This one is quite tricky!
The word TEACH reflects as LEARN.

5.Last one.
What do you see?

You probably read the word ME in brown, but.......
When you look through ME you will see YOU!
Do you need to look again?

6. Test Your Brain
This is really cool:

Count every ' F ' in the following text:


How many did you counted?
There are six -- no joke.
Read it again!
Really, go back and try to find the 6 F's before you scroll down.

The reasoning:
The brain cannot process 'OF'.
To count three is normal, four is quite rare.:))

I got every one except for 'illusion' (though I did get 'optical'). I'm sure, though, it was because I was LOOKING for things and knew there were things to find :)

Zuzana said...

I am so impressed Diane! You are borderline genius.:) And you pay attention. I never pay attention and never notice things, I would be a terrible witness.:P

Diane said...

LOL... oh, I am going to be such a disappointment when you meet me! ;)

I do pay attention (sometimes) and that's all it is, trust me. There is no genius at play here!!

Zuzana said...

I so absolutely doubt that you can ever be a disappointment, to anyone for that matter.:)

Diane said...

I'll give you my ex-husband's #... he'll set THAT record straight! ;)

These were very cool. I've seen a few of them before.. like the "F"s and the double usage of the word "the" but the two-words-in-one illusions were new to me.. and fascinating. Like Dianne, I saw "optical" but not "illusion." Once that one was clear, I could figure out the rest of them. Fun stuff. I've loved this sort of thing ever since I was a kid.

Zuzana said...

Congratulation Hilary, I seem to be the only one that got the expected results.;)
And I agree, I too am very intrigued by these kinds of visual tests.

Donna said...

How fun doing the mind games! I got stumped a couple of times.

This was soooo much fun!
