This optical illusion reveals whether you're an optimist or a pessimist
An optical illusion can apparently tell whether or not someone is an optimist or a pessimist, as stated in a study.
The Minds Journal shared the illusion, which is a greyscale image of a cat on a staircase.
Whichever way the cat is seen by viewers, the research claims it indicates how people approach their lives.
So if someone sees the illusion and believes the cat is walking up the stairs, then they may have a more optimistic outlook on life.
“ Your mind has been trained to look at ways of rising higher in life, so given a situation where you have the choice of rising higher than others or falling to their levels, you would inevitably be the better person,” the journal said.
On the other hand, if someone else viewed the cat descending down the stairs, they may be more pessimistic in their views.
