Optical illusion: The first thing you see will detect whether you’re an optimist or a realist

Have you ever wondered what kind of personality you have? This new optical illusion can detect whether you are an optimist or a realist.

New day, new optical illusions. There are several kinds of illusions all over the internet but we recently discovered the one that can detect the type of personality you have. This specific type of illusion can detect whether you are a realist or an optimist. Although not always accurate, these illusion tests can help you realise many unknown things about yourself.

What is your personality type?

BrightSide is one of the most renowned YouTube channels, that is popular for its optical illusions and visual brainteaser videos. They posted a video in 2018 that went viral and amassed over 11 million views to date. The video features an optically elusive image that appears to be a mixture of a cat and a mouse. The channel states, that depending on what you see first, a cat or a mouse, it detects whether you are an optimist or a realist.

What do you see?

If you see the mouse first then you are an optimist, the narrator of the video explains. He continues to elaborate that:

You prefer to look for advantages in every situation (...) You are sometimes not practical enough and people often say you have your head in the clouds (...) You are well aware of the world around you but you simply prefer to focus on its good sides.

However, if you see a cat rather than a mouse, then you are most definitely a realist. The narrator describes you as ‘pragmatic’ and reveals that you are a person who prefers practicality rather than optimism. The narrator says:

you know what you want out of life, and you don't naively plan ahead. Seeing the world as a whole (...) helps you plan your future actions.
