An optical illusion has taken the internet by storm and depending on what you see, it could reveal a lot about your personality.
Now, I've seen a few strange illusions in my lifetime, but this one takes the cake for being the absolute weirdest.
How can something look like a beach and a car door at the same time?
Have a look for yourselves ladies and gentlemen...
But first, let me warm you up a little bit with a few of the other strangest optical illusions we've ever seen.
Can you see the hidden cat?
You can only see this optical illusion if you shake your head (I’m serious) 😂 https://t.co/WhtZ1b0r4t— Dr Michelle Dickinson (@Dr Michelle Dickinson)1547090916.0
If you zoom out on the original illusion, or look at a very small version of the image, the cat should become clear.
What color are the circles in this image?
A new Munker illusion, which I call confetti. All the dots in the background are the same color (RGB 250, 219, 172)… https://t.co/SjFqXWQmng— David Novick (@David Novick)1531924880.0
This colorful image went viral in 2018 after its creator, University of Texas professor, Dr. David Novick, shared it on Twitter.
Despite what you may see, it turns out all the circles are actually the same color. "The differences are subtle, though, and depend on the size of the image when it's viewed," Dr. Novick tweeted.
Who's wearing high heels here?
At first i thought he was wearing the heels pic.twitter.com/GSqurm3AcE— Charles Joseph (@Boom_likean808) May 24, 2018
In May 2018, a Twitter user posted a picture of 2 coworkers laughing and hugging - however, it looks like the guy in the photo is rocking a light blue shirt, white skinny jeans, and black heels, when it's infact the woman.
If you stare at this image for around thirty seconds, it will disappear before your very eyes.
Stare at the image for about half a minute without moving your eyes and watch as it gradually disappears. This is a… https://t.co/k47vUT1DQa— David McPhillips (@David McPhillips)1520888705.0
Well, not really.
The image, which was posted by Dr. David McPhillips of Primary Eye Care Associates, is a result of a famous optical illusion called Troxler's fading circle.
Does this floor need fixing, or is it just an illusion?
Amazing optical illusion at Casa Ceramica😍 (the floor is totally flat) https://t.co/lLPG684cBZ— Hanna Brus (@Hanna Brus)1614712542.0
This Twitter user shared a photo of this cleverly deceptive tiled floor designed by UK-based tile company Casa Ceramica - I wonder how many legs have been broken on this floor?
Another weird flooring illusion...
Here we go. Here's the FNAC carpet pic.twitter.com/RTDqo3bw3J— CARPET (@WHS_Carpet) September 15, 2017
In September, Twitter account @WHS_Carpet - which specializes in calling out "bad carpets" - brought this disorienting photo to the internet's attention.
What color are these shoes?
THE REAL SHOE IS PINK & WHITE OKAY⁉️ The second pic was with flash & darkened, so it looks teal & gray. (depends on… https://t.co/4bXIeSw3Wc— alîsha (@alîsha)1507759237.0
In 2017, this shoe went viral after people started debating whether it was pink and white or gray and teal - a little like the second coming of The Dress debate from 2015, in which the internet could not agree on the true color of a bodycon dress.
How about the color of these strawberries?
This illusion was created by Japanese psychologist and professor, Akiyoshi Kitaoka - the color red had been completely removed from the image, yet people still see red strawberries.
What happened to Kendall Jenner's leg?
This star-studded photo of Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner, and Hailey Baldwin went viral in 2017 because of the absence of Kendall's left leg.
Where did it go?!
Is this girl underwater or not?
This little girl appears to be underwater at first glance - however, she also looks like she's jumping into the water, which makes no sense at all.
But, while the filtered light and air bubbles make it seem like the girl is underwater, her dry hair proves that she isn't.
Is one train track bigger than the other?
My toddler's train track is freaking me out right now. What is going on here?! https://t.co/9o8bVWF5KO— Marc Blank-Settle (@Marc Blank-Settle)1459974903.0
Or are they actually the same size?
This version of a classic optical illusion went viral in 2016 when BBC presenter, Marc Blank-Settle, posted a video of it on Twitter.
Sand dunes or craters?
Like an Escher painting, sand dunes seem to reproduce the same shape indefinitely #Volare http://t.co/8VvKKnnWtN— Luca Parmitano (@Luca Parmitano)1375357628.0
European Space Agency astronaut, Luca Parmitano, took this photo of some sand dunes in 2013.
But why do the dunes in his picture look like craters?
Are these men stood on a flat floor? Or do they have insanely good balancing skills?
The floor of the Florence Cathedral has some kind of amazing optical illusion built into it [read more:… https://t.co/gWxtE4FFuA— Science Club (@Science Club)1614144024.0
The floor of the Florence Cathedral has been designed to look like a tunnel, despite it being completely flat.
Are the wheels really turning?
This is the sort of optical illusion that describes the reality we're dealing with. It appears that it's moving and people might tell you it's moving, but it's not. Experts in how vision is processed can even explain why in detail. To believe that this is moving is irrational. pic.twitter.com/LHKCN1tjfe— Alison Pahlkotter (@ampcat81) February 27, 2021
This classic illusion appears to be moving at a first glance - but, upon closer inspection, it is simply a still image.
How about this weird arm tattoo?
Excuse me sir, I think there's a hole in your arm... Or is there?
What color is this dresser? Because I see pink and white.
My eyes hurt...
And as for the latest optical illusion?
Well, as expected, it's got everyone talking.
People can't decide whether this picture is of a beach or a car door...
I know what you're thinking: How can something be a beach or a car door? It just doesn't make sense, but it will once you see the photo.
Of course, the internet is as confused as I am...
I can see it now. Before just beach— Angela Price (@32009Momo) July 8, 2019
Good dear appreciate your art 🖼 good luck— Zahidbutt Butt (@ZahidbuttB) July 8, 2019
Look at it sideways then you'll notice— PolyTF1 (@PolyTf1) July 9, 2019
I can see both and did at first see a beach.— Lisa M Fridenmaker (@LisaFridenmaker) July 9, 2019
I know something is wrong. I can feel it, sense it, and that strange square where the surf is not even confirms it but I CANT FIGURE IT OUT STOP!!!! OMG STOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!— Seattle Software Developers (@SeattleSoftDevs) July 10, 2019
No this is crazy, I only see ocean!!!!— Breda E. Heinz (@BredaHeinz) July 12, 2019
I see a car door on a beach.— Built Different (@t_r_u_e_i_n_d_y) July 11, 2019
On first glance definitely a beach. But looking again the shadow under gives the appearance of the sea being elevated off the sand. A kinda give away.— Chandu (@ceepee12) July 11, 2019
Thats crazy cool.— Sherry Rizzotti (@Sherry53Sherry) July 14, 2019
IMPRESSED!— butwhy? (@cu_rious) July 2, 2019
Here's the photo:
if you can see a beach, ocean sky, rocks and stars then you are an artist, But its not a painting its lower part of the car gate which needs to be repaired. pic.twitter.com/dCMC49PBQS— X (@nxyxm) July 2, 2019
And the caption tells you what it says about your personality.
