The riddle of the famous optical illusion is opened


The group of researchers of Flinders University in Australia has explained why people see different images in the picture "My Wife and My Mother-in-law" which is one of the most known optical illusions. Writes Business Insider about it. Experts have interviewed 666 people from 22 countries of the world aged 18 years are more senior, however subsequently in selection left only results of 393 citizens of the USA (242 men and 141 women) with middle age in 33 years and dispersion from 18 to 68 years. On half a second showed them a picture and asked estimated age of the person which is represented in it. Experts have established that perception of a picture depends on age of the respondent. So, people were younger than 30 years are sure that on the image the young girl whereas the others answered that they see the elderly lady is shown. For the first time optical illusion "My wife and my mother-in-law" has appeared on the German card of 1888. In 1915 the British caricaturist William Ely Hill has published own version of this image in the comic magazine Puck. In 1930 the psychologist of Edwin Boring used him in the article "New Ambiguous Figure" then the picture began to be published in textbooks.
