Now a deceptively simple illustration that is sweeping the web as viewers test what it says about them. So what do you see when you look at it?

Analysis by Playbuzz user TeacherQuizzes explains the personality features associated with the image.


If your first reaction to the picture is to think it's the back of a young girl's head, you are "optimistic and beaming with positive energy".

However, seeing the girl's head isn't all positive, as it also implies impetuousness.

The quiz says: "You have a tendency to take action based on impulsive decisions."

It also advises asking for help from others: "You will develop and grow into a better person with the multiple feedback, advice and support from people around you."
