Most people can’t tell what this picture is supposed to be. Still, there are very few lucky ones who instantly get it right.


According to studies, if you're one of the lucky individuals who can see what lies in the picture, then you're probably a highly creative person.

99% of the participants guessed the answer incorrectly when they were asked to describe what they saw in the image. That’s right: only 1 in 100 managed to get the answer right.


If you are still struggling to see what the image depicts, try again. A trick that might be helpful is to block the darker side of the picture with a piece of paper, or your hand.

Surprise! It's a man in a cowboy hat!


While it has not been easy to explain precisely how creative processes work, because of their highly abstract and unquantifiable values, researchers have recently discovered a way to pinpoint which creative features a person might have. After analyzing the distinct functions of the brain while creative processes were in action, scientists found that creative people use more of their brains, and bigger regions were active for longer as well. That means that creative people use more of their memory when they try to figure something out or solve a problem.


In this example of the cowboy man above, a creative person would have more work to do when trying to solve the puzzle. They'd use previously seen pictures and shapes from their memory to apply that information to find the solution.


Some people may have found this to be incredibly easy. However, if you were one of those who struggled, don’t feel bad! It simply means that you process information differently. People who couldn’t see the picture correctly follow a stricter set of rules that are mostly based on logic - and there's nothing wrong with that.


If you think that the image deconstruction test sounds familiar, that may be because there was a similar one conducted more than a century ago. It was the famous duck-rabbit dilemma, presented by American psychologist Joseph Jastrow in 1899.


Take a look at the image below: do you see a duck or a rabbit? Once you've decided on one animal, can you easily spot the other? Is it hard to shift your perspective or does it switch with ease?

This picture, unlike the previous one, has no correct answer ( even though most people see a duck at first). What you should do is focus on determining how easily you can switch between spotting the two animals.


These seemingly simple tests are surprisingly helpful in determining whether someone is a highly creative person. Richard Wiseman, along with a group of fellow psychologists at the University of Edinburgh, conducted research that explains how creative people see the world differently. According to that study, that's because those individuals can see things from many different perspectives, and shift their view with ease.


Wiseman’s research explains that creative individuals' brains work faster when interpreting abstract concepts. That contributes to there being a difference in how creative people perceive the world.

  1. *I knew I was a bad wife and mother for invariably pushing my husband to the point of hating me or seeing me with the kids. But I never let my bad attitude towards him let me feel like I am the worst woman out there. So, I fought inside of me to change the bad attitude and win back my husband’s heart for over six years but could not until he threatened me with a divorce and a restraining order, not only to keep me away from him, but away from our kids.
    *Because I can’t stand losing them, I threw away my pride and went spiritual on myself with the aid of doctor wakina ([email protected]), I was brought to light and made to understand that “it is of a great significant to make my husband happy and I must start by making myself happy”.
    *I boldly acknowledge the spiritual power doctor wakina carries that cured me from myself for four days and overturned my husband’s decisions. For over four months I have been having an entertaining moment with myself and family, a lot of things has changed both physical and spiritual. I say thank you Dr. Wakina for saving me from myself and restoring my marriage.
    *Love… Paris Tyne
