Duck or Rabbit?

How Your Brain Decides Without You - Issue 19: Illusions ...

This duck-rabbit drawing was first used by American psychologist Joseph Jastrow in 1899 to emphasize that perception is not only what we see, but also something mentally active.

Is it bad to be different? Is it weird to say certain phrases, or jokes, or X Y Z?

I don’t think there is ever really a cookie-cutter model to live life. There just isn’t.

Just like some people will only see a Duck. And Some will only see a Rabbit. Some people will see both sides of a situation, while some will only see one, and maybe it’ll take years for them to notice the other side.

When you first see the picture above, it’s clearly a rabbit at first, right? It’s a rabbit!

But no. Wait. It’s a duck. Is it?

Do you see both?

Life isn’t just about what you see. It’s about how you perceive the information given to you.

Hopefully, you can spend your time with people you like and with people who see the entire picture for what it is.

It’s not a duck or a rabbit. It’s both!

What do you see?
