The two women optical illusion challange
Optical illusions, more appropriately known as visual illusions, involve visual deception. Due to the arrangement of images, the effect of colors, the impact of the light source or other variables, a wide range of misleading visual effects can be seen.
If you’ve ever struggled to see the hidden image in a single-image stereogram, you may have discovered that not everyone experiences visual illusions in the same way. For some illusions, some people simply are not able to see the effect.
How many women do you see in this image? One or two women? This optical illusion is quite tricky, but, once you see it, you will not be able to unsee it! Try not to peek at the answer at the end! Take a look at the thought-provoking image to follow.
Could you see both women?
If you looked close enough, you would hopefully have seen it. We certainly struggled to see the two women!
Scientists have studied optical illusions and they still don’t completely understand or agree about how they work. However, many scientists believe that some optical illusions are caused when the information taken in by our eyes conflicts with how our brain interprets that information. The brain can’t make sense of what the eyes are seeing, so it falls back on its previous experience. It turns the unfamiliar into something familiar.
