Do your eyes deceive you? Can you really trust your senses, or do they sometimes deceive you? Take this quiz to find out! It’s a lot harder than you think. This quiz also includes an explanation for each question that helps you understand how your brain is “tricked” by your senses.
My score: 14/20. I guess all that Anatomy and Physiology teaching served me well! (i got 19/20 on the second try — that line graphic is tricky).
I found it interesting that a crying baby is so danged loud (I thought my perception was simply a measure of my own annoyance level) — nearly as loud as a pop concert and louder than a motorbike! I also got lucky on several questions, like the white chocolate and caviar question (I HATE white chocolate), the musical notes and the Godzilla/King Kong questions. Did the timer make you nervous? Did you guess correctly on some questions?
