Cat Hides Masterfully In An Optical Illusion

6 years ago

Dogs may not be the best at playing ‘hide-and-go-seek’, but cats can play the game like champions. Cats use camouflage to blend into their surroundings, it helps them hide from predators and catch prey, prompting the question: ‘Can you find the cat in this picture’?

Cats are born escape artists and masters of camouflage, so when they don’t want to be found they put all their energy and effort to get a disguise and blend perfectly in the surroundings. This is why only 5% of the people can spot the cat in this picture. Even if you have a flawless vision, this cat is not that easy to spot!

If you took your time and explored the picture in detail, but yet failed to find the brown feline, you should take a close look at the far righthand side in front of the bundle of rocks. Did you see her sitting all glamorous, slightly turned to side?

It is funny how this cat fits perfectly in the surroundings and its brownish fur blends perfectly, making it more difficult for the human eye to see. It is amazing that this cat didn’t even bother to hide or look invisible, it was a matter of circumstances, she found herself in the right place at the right time.

How long did it take you to find the cat?

Actually, these sorts of videos and hidden objects games are not invented for entertainment purposes. They are actually based on tests and training psychological assessments that were invented and developed by practitioners to determine the rate and the level of development of cognitive processes in children and adults. The younger the children were, the more these tests were modeled as play activities. But, the manner the tests were being administered, conducted, and timed, as well as the choice of objects that need to be discovered by the test subject.

The concept of the game is set as follows: an interactional partner activates the frame of the "game", the subject reacts to the activity set (we cannot say running as it is still photography) in the foreground. The brain needs to quickly assess and distinguish various shapes and colorations in the foreground and orient itself, using the cues provided towards a right-or-wrong interpretation. Here comes the element of play: distinguishing and assessing between a great number of nicely blended shapes, textures and colors awaken the center in the brain that is responsible for, to put it in layman's' terms "exploration and invention". This is why, statistics show, people who have watched the video and were in the good mood showed better results than those who watched the video after experiencing some sort of stressful situation. How did you go?
