Some of us are more naturally shy, while others are outgoing. And according to TikTok user Charles Meriot, this simple psychology trick can decipher which one you truly are.
When we look at ourselves and observe ourselves, there is a certain bias we hold. We may view ourselves in one way, while to everyone else, we come off entirely the opposite.
Meriot has a TikTok account that is dedicated to similar optical illusions and other types of personality tests. In one video, he shares an art piece that shows colors and lines.
He asks his viewers, “What did you see first?” He then gives the viewers a moment to decide and then goes on to explain what it means. You can view the image as a rooster or a pair of lips. Which did you see first?
“If you saw the rooster first, it means you’re quite shy,” he says. “You only like attention when you’re in the right mood.” However, if you saw the lips, this shows a very different type of personality.
“If you saw the mouth first, it means you’re confident, strong, and independent,” Meriot explained. Conversely, he explains that those who saw the lips “can be a bit stubborn and aggressive when things don’t go the exact way you want them to.”
Many of the comments following the video agreed with Meriot. One commenter was so stuck on the lips that they couldn’t see the rooster. I saw the rooster first. Which one did you see?
