It’s a visual personality test.
Viewers are frazzling their puzzlers over this multifaceted optical illusion, which reportedly reveals certain personality traits based on what they see first. A video detailing the cataract-inducing character test currently boasts almost 100,000 views on TikTok.
“What did you see first?” asks TikToker Charles Meriot in the clip depicting the trippy illustration, which features abstract white and black shapes with the silhouette of a city looming in the background.

Viewers who saw the suit first in these forms are “ambitious and want to succeed” and “work really hard,” per the post.
Unfortunately, these same users can also be a “little bit shallow at times,” Meriot explains.
Conversely, if viewers saw the women’s miniskirt and long bare legs, this means they’re “bold and independent” and can be “really stubborn” about getting the things that they want,” according to the video. Interestingly, this slightly salacious image has no correlation to “shallowness.”
Needless to say, the eye exam resonated on TikTok with one astonished commenter exclaiming, “How are you always so accurate?”
“I feel attacked,” said another, while one viewer wrote, “You nail it every time.”
“I saw the leg first,” declared another. “Instead of stubborn… I will say I am determined. When I set a goal I won’t let it go until I accomplish it.”
While the analysis might’ve amazed viewers on TikTok, Meriot neglected to reveal whether it has any basis in science.
Of course, these supposed visual personality determinants are nothing new. This far more blatant eye test allegedly determines whether the viewer has a dirty mind.
