Of a duck and a rabbit

February 23, 2016


In the era of selfies and gifs, to much surprise a simple drawing has taken social media by the storm. A century ago an American psychologist Joseph Jastrow used it to demonstrate the link between mental activity and perception.

How quickly one discovers there are two animals on the sketch and how fast one can switch between them should tell a lot about the person’s mental activity and creativity. While the test outcome may sound a bit dubious today, it is worth adding the result also depends on the season. Namely, during the Easter period majority of viewers see the rabbit first, while in October, the duck takes the lead.
