Duck Or Rabbit? This 100-Year-Old Optical Illusion Will Have You Doubting The Reliability Of Your Own Eyes

Which one can you see first? Rabbit or duck, or duck or rabbit – or neither of the two?

That question has been gaining online traction since the above picture took the internet by storm, even though the picture was drawn more than 100 years ago.

It first appeared in a German magazine about 1892, it was later made famous by U.S. pyschologist Joseph Jastrow in 1899.

Jastrow used the illusion to make the point that we ‘see’ with our brains as well as our eyes.

The image says a whole lot about how a person’s brain works.

Depending on whether an observer sees a duck or a rabbit first and how fast it sees the other is an indicator of how creative you are, and how fast your brain works.

The research suggested that more creative people were able to switch between images of the two animals more quickly than other people.
