Okay, so, are you ready for a really, really cool visual optical illusion? Okay, this one isn’t exactly a visual illusion, is more of a mind trick, but that’s what makes it so amazing! And come to think of it, we should have more of these on this site, don’t you think? Give us your opinion in the comments section below this post!
What to see?
It’s pretty obvious that you have a text that tells you to find the error, and you have a bunch of numbers of different colors. But, where’s the error. The first time we laid eyes on it, we were looking at the numbers, and checking out if they’re in order. The next thing was to see if the colors are in order – and we did a bit of research on that as well, but, since we couldn’t find nothing wrong, we checked the text, and we couldn’t find nothing wrong with it either.
And then, it hits you like a rock in the face. Read the text word by word out loud. Seriously! Do it! Read the text word by word out loud, and you’ll see what’s the trick behind this “visual optical illusion” that we have for today! Pretty cool, right?
Yes, we know, we missed it a couple of times…but that’s the magic of it!
How it works?
Let’s see, this works best for those who learned to read and write left to right; in case you are used to reading vice versa, chances are that you’re going to spot the mistake right away!
Our mind is taught that text goes left to right, and that’s why, with years and years of training, our perception learned to be fast and decode text messages at an alarming rate. When you introduce a repeated word in a straight straight sentence, you notice it right away. However, if it’s on the next line, then you have a problem. Pretty cool, right? How’s that for visual optical illusions?
