Below, we observe a donkey (animal) and must seek for an officer, which is an example of a literal optical illusion.
The picture of the donkey and the officer is an ambiguous (or reversible or bistable) figure, not a real optical illusion, from a purely technical standpoint.
In both kinds of perceptual events, different mechanisms are at work: unconscious inferences in optical illusions, and expectations and knowledge in the interpretation of ambiguous images.
Reversible figures are another genre in which objects are portrayed that, when turned in the horizontal or vertical plane, transform into something different. It’s frequently used in comedic and satirical contexts.
Over the ages, the activities we do to keep ourselves occupied have altered a little. Movies, television, video games, and all of the other things available to us now lead us to seek out more and more exams and challenges online.
We, at the educators website, look for dozens of challenges and exams every day to put your intellect to the test and excite it as much as we do ours.
According to studies, just 5% of people can identify the officer in this photograph…
Let’s see what we can find out… Do you happen to see the officer? ……………………………………. Have you noticed that? Are you certain?
We see a donkey, but is it ready to see? The officer in the image below is visible to only 1% of the population.
