Are you quiet or confident? Depends on what you see first in this optical illusion

Nobody knows you better than yourself, and you probably have a pretty good handle on your personality. But deep inside, there might be aspects you aren’t aware of.

You can get insights about yourself by taking a few quizzes or looking at optical illusions. Tap or click here for four optical illusions that will test your brain. While some might call it bogus, what you see in an image can reveal more about your personality than you realize.  

Like the famous Rorschach tests, look at the image below to determine if you are truly quiet or confident.

Here’s the backstory

A viral video from TikTok creator Charles Meriot has thousands of people looking at a striking blue, yellow and red picture. Meriot claims that the first thing you see will determine if you are shy and quiet or confident and stubborn.

It is unclear if Meriot has any background in psychology, but he reveals what the two possible answers mean.

Here’s the image from the TikTok:

What did you see first?

If you saw the rooster

At first glance, seeing the rooster with an impressive red comb means that you are usually reserved. He explains in the video: “If you saw the rooster first, it means you’re quite shy. You only like attention when you’re in the right mood.”

If you saw the lips of a woman

When the sultry lips and nose of a female’s face jump out at you when you take a peek, you are confident. “If you saw the mouth first, it means you’re confident, strong, and independent. You can be a bit stubborn and aggressive when things don’t go the exact way you want them to,” the TikTok creator explains.

If you initially saw something else, then you are not alone. Comments below the video reveal that some people saw a pierced tongue. One person saw both images at the same time, commenting, “I saw a mouth eating the rooster.”

Does that mean they are confidently shy?
