Do you see a duck, or a rabbit…or can you see both?
This drawing is over 100 years old, but is still used to highlight the work of American psychologist Joseph Jastrow, who said that perception was not just what the person sees, but a mental activity.
According to Jastrow, how quickly a person is able to see the second animal (be it the bird or the rabbit) and alternate between their view of the two can determine how creative you are.
So, if you are straining to go between Mr Rabbit and Mr Duck, you’re probably not going to win any creativity awards soon, BUT if you can chop and change between the two, you’re practically Picasso. Get painting!
