This personality test promises to show how you are seen by other people and what your outlook on life might be.

This bright and cheerful optical illusion requires you to take a quick look at the picture, in which you should either see clothes hanging from a laundry line or a farm animal, usually a horse or cow, lounging in a field.

Whichever you see first should reveal if you are a more positive or negative person, and how this might affect how trusting you are with others.

This peculiar brainteaser was first shared in a video on social media by the optical illusion specialist Mia Yilin, who has quickly become popular on the internet for her fun and quick psychological pictures.

On Mia’s TikTok account, one amazed user wrote in the comments: “This was incredibly accurate for me” while another person said: “I can't believe how Mia is always able to know what's going on in my life.”

If you first saw clothes hanging on the lines, then you tend to be a very positive person who tries not to let any problem in life get to you.

You’re caring and your bright personality means you tend to get on well with almost anybody. You tend to be someone who lives in the present and tries not to dwell on the past or worry about the future.

However, your carefree nature means that sometimes you can feel overwhelmed when having to make big decisions and can feel stressed easily if forced out of your comfort zone.

Mia said: “You get indecisive over even the smallest details. You’re also someone who is optimistic and tries to see the best side of any situation.”


If you first saw a farm animal, you are someone who tends to have a negative outlook on life. You are a very practical person who does not like relying on other people and feels like it is best to try and prepare yourself as much as possible for anything that life throws at you.

You tend to be quite a stoic person but you are very kind at heart and try to help others as you never want to see other people struggling. However, it is important to not let anyone take advantage of you or put your trust in someone unworthy of your caring nature.

Mia said: “You are easily trusting and can be a little bit gullible at times. However, you’re quite a pessimist and tend to expect the worst possible outcome at all times.”
