Crocodiles or Bird? This Optical Illusion Tells a Lot About Your Personality

Here’s what your response says about you, according to Meriot.

Two crocodiles

If you see two side profiles of crocodiles tilting their mouths together, you might be a romantic. You’re either in a relationship or looking to be in one. This can also indicate your flexible, adaptable nature.

For example, you’re probably versatile enough to adjust your personality based on who you are around. This may be because seeing the two crocodiles together indicates a character with strong social needs.

You see the two animals leaning towards each other, indicating your proclivity towards closeness and connecting with others by any means necessary.

A bird

If you see a singular bird, you’re a free spirit. You’re more focused on exploring than settling down with one person. The bird’s open wings and flying position imply you’re more than ready to spread your wings.

At this point in your life, you value adventure over staying in one place. You have a strong sense of self and are unwavering in your pursuits. You’re confident enough to have faith in your goals, and you won’t let yourself be deterred by naysayers.
