Only 1% of people can see this hidden image

Are your eyes playing tricks on you or is there more than meets the eye in this pink circle?

An optical illusion shared by content creator @pasillusion may leave you second guessing your eyesight, as the TikTok trickster claims to have a “secret image” hidden in plain sight.

The image looks as though it’s a simple bubblegum pink square with a darker pink circle inside — but the user claims there is a ‘hidden image’ inside the circle — that only 1% of people can see.

“Can YOU See The Hidden Image?! Let me know,” the Tikoker captioned the video, which was posted to his 5,800 followers.

There was a variety in the comments of what people claimed to see — or not see.

TikTok users claim to see a number of objects — a bed, a boat, a smile and even a boat. But the majority people who reported seeing an image in the circle said they could make out the shape of a bottle.

It’s not the only picture claiming to have a hidden image only a select few can view. TikTok user Rana Ashard shared a tricky picture to his “illusions” account showing a drawing of an old man’s face with a beard and hair, with varied responses as to what people could see.

If you were in the 1% off people that could see the hidden image, you may be able to spot the hidden celebrity in this black-and-white grid.

Although optical illusions are usually just a harmless diversion from the stresses of a typical day fun — they also hold real-life value for scientists. The brain teasers reportedly help researchers shed light on the inner machinations of the mind — and how it reacts to its surroundings.

Dr Gustav Kuhn, a psychologist and human perception expert at Goldsmiths University in London, told The Sun that such illusions are actually important to increasing our understanding of the brain: “We typically take perception for granted, and rarely think about the hard work that underpins everyday tasks, such as seeing a cup of coffee in front of you.”
