The Unexpected Optical Illusion Hidden in a Stack of Chairs

  The Unexpected Optical Illusion Hidden in a Stack of Chairs A scientist in the UK found a stack of classroom chairs that seemed to bend the laws of physics.

But this optical illusion claims to reveal a lot about a person’s personality. What did you see ? This optical illusion comes after an optical illusion tested how dirty a person’a mind was.

How you see this simple optical illusion, and more importantly how your brain sees it, could reveal a lot about you.

One day, the rotating dots may even be used as a tool to help diagnose autism.

Watch the dots spin for a moment. Nearly everyone sees a spinning hollow cylinder, black on one side and white on the other, randomly changing direction.

But not everyone’s brain is processing the image in the same way.

Of course, there is no cylinder per se – just 300 dots moving from side to side, switching from black to white.

AN OPTICAL illusion can reveal how dirty your mind is depending on what you see . This optical illusion might reveal a lot about your personality. The black and white image can look like many things to different people, but there are two more prominent than anything else.

The typical brain takes in the big picture, ignoring the details.

But to the brains of people with high levels of attention to detail, it’s just dots.

An optical illusion from over a century ago has taken social media by storm, as psychologists say that what you see can tell a lot about how your brain works. Psychologists Say Your Answer Reveals A Lot About You . If your eyes can beat these optical illusions you might actually be super human.

You could even consider an optical illusion to be an eye test! In that case, there are a lot of different ways you can test your You might see a little shape or even a blob, but there’s more to it than that! Isn’t it funny how your eyes can play tricks on you when you ’re not sure what you ’re looking at?

David Burr and his collaborators have been showing this illusion to university students in Pisa and Florence, in Italy, over the past year. In a clever experiment, they have tracked the size of the students’ pupils with an infrared camera as they watch the cylinder spin.

"Everybody reports the spontaneous and unpredictable changes in the cylinder’s direction," says Professor Burr, who now works at the University of Sydney. "But not everyone perceives the figure in the same way."

Pupils contract and expand, like the iris of a camera, to control how much light hits the retina.

The overall darkness of the cylinder does not change. If you’re paying attention to the whole picture, your pupil won't move.

Can you see a duck or rabbit? Apparently this optical illusion says a lot about your creativity. Look at it and it will reveal something about you . At first glance you might mistake this picture for something terribly offensive, but take a closer look and you ’ll realise its completely innocent.

But if you’re focused on the dots, your pupils will move – contracting sharply when the bright white ‘side’ of the cylinder is in front, expanding when black is in front. This is what Professor Burr was looking for with his camera.

The brains of these responders are focusing their attention on the individual surfaces of the cylinder, rather than the cylinder as a whole. Even if they don’t ‘see’ it, their brain is focused on detail, rather than the bigger picture.

Professor Burr went a step further - he demonstrated the traits revealed by the illusion seemed to be mirrored in people's personalities and thinking styles.

As part of Professor Burr's study, published this week in eLife, subjects also took a self-administered test of autistic traits. Those who saw the dots, not the big picture, tended to score much higher – which makes sense, the professor believes, because autism is characterised by extreme attention to detail.

If the study can be repeated using more people – Professor Burr tested only 50 – and on people diagnosed with autism, he thinks it might become a useful diagnosis tool for autism.

Dead Rat Found Inside Red Bull Can

  Dead Rat Found Inside Red Bull Can A video shared on social media shows the can being cut in half with a pair of scissors to reveal what appears to be a dead mouse in it. According to Josh Henley, he bought the energy drink can from a gas station Sunday night. The man said he drinks Red Bull energy drink all the time but had never experienced something like this."I don't know if it's factory or what but there's a dead rat in here," Henley said in the video as he opened the can. Henley reportedly said he didn't finish the drink when he opened it first.

Others aren’t convinced. “This is not a particularly strong study, it’s not even talking about an autistic population,” says Professor Cheryl Dissanayake, director of the Olga Tennison Autism Research Centre.

That said, people with autism do tend to excel at spotting fine details and pattern recognition while struggling to see the overall structure of something.

Savant capacities, such as exceptional drawing ability or solving a jigsaw puzzle with the pieces face-down, have also been linked to superior attention to detail.

Many scientists now believe that autism, characterised by impaired communication and social interaction, is in fact a symptom, with the underlying cause being extreme attention to detail.

"When we come out of the womb, humans perceive the world in a particular way. We focus on social information, such as faces and eyes," says Professor Andrew Whitehouse, chief research officer at the Autism Cooperative Research Centre.

"If we’re not perceiving the world in that typical way right from the get go, then of course our development will be different.

"There is a theory that kids aren’t necessarily ‘born’ with autism, they are born with subtle differences in the way they perceive the world. From that point of view, autism is a perfectly normal response to a different starting point in life."
