Psychological Optical Illusion
Psychological Optical Illusion is a neat optical illusion, that will be seen differently by different cultures. The perception of the scene in the photo is largely determined by your culture and what part of the world you live in.
So what did you see happening in the above picture? Tests were done with similar picture in Africa, the majority of the participants saw a family sitting on the ground by a tree and a girl balancing a box on her head. On the other hand Western cultures placed the family indoors and the post behind the man the corner of the room and the box above the girls head a window with some vegetation outside. Im assuming that most of our readers will see the second half considering we are all modern enough to be on a computer! Let me know what you guys saw.
Very interesting. I really enjoyed this one.
Neat….i liked this on
rely kool………………..n i saw d 2nd option…………
Oki.. i thought it was a framed picture which was hung on the wall…
My 4 year old daughter said they were inside because she saw a picture. I asked her about the alternative (outside, tree, box on head) and she gasped, said yeah, and when I asked if they were inside or outside she now thought they were outside. Very interesting to watch the picture change before her eyes.
May I use this in classes I teach? I would like to use it to discuss cultural bias and cross cultural differences.
