Only a Genius Or a Person With a Mental Illness Can Answer This

December 10, 2019

It is practically impossible to tell an average
person from a person with schizophrenia by their appearance. Many psychiatric tests and methods are used
in order to find out what is going on in the patient’s head and determine whether they
need help. Here are two simple questions that can be
answered only by a person with schizophrenia or by an extraordinary genius person. Do you want to give it a try? To get precise results, answer the questions
in accordance with your feelings. Try to concentrate on what you see, not what
it should look like. Question #1. Is the mask convex on one side or two? I’ll give you 10 seconds – have a closer
look at the picture. Ok, now, question #2. Is the mask rotating in one direction or in
two? Again, here are 10 seconds. Are you ready for the answers? 1. The mask is convex only on one side. 2. The mask is rotating in the right direction. So, let’s see who you are: crazy or a genius. If you answered both questions wrong, do not
worry: you are a completely healthy person. And if one of the answers was obvious to you,
it’s probably time to find a friend that is a psychiatrist. The truth is that the brain of a healthy person
tends toward self-deceit. It takes into account artificial forms and
extra shadows, ‘correcting’ the picture. We swallow the hook of the illusion, no matter
if we want to or not. People with schizophrenia do not have this
imagination. Their brains cannot establish the connection
between the details. They see the mask just as it really is. For them, the mask is concave and rotates
in one direction. What difference does genius make? Schizophrenia and genius are not that different. However, it is possible to distinguish between
them. Genius personalities possess both types of
thinking: that of a healthy person as well as the schizophrenic one, and they can switch
between the types of thinking. They see the illusion just the way an average
person sees it, but they also see the catch immediately. If they want to, their brain may stop perceiving
the deceit. Also, we’ve prepared a little bonus for
you: a quick IQ test that can determine your intellect. In 2016, research carried out by evolutionary
psychologists examined how population density affects an individual. It was found that people with high IQs showed
strikingly similar characteristics. Here are 2 questions that will help you find
out if you’re one of them. However, keep in mind that the test is entirely
subjective. Here’s the first question. Could you live in a heavily populated part
of a big city? There are two options:
1. No, lots of people stress me out. 2. I wouldn’t mind it; I’d feel at home. Think for a few seconds, choose the one, and
write down or remember the answer. Now, question #2. Do you feel sad or lonely and experience “withdrawal
symptoms” if you aren’t in constant contact with your friends? You need to choose one answer:
1. More or less. 2. Not really. So,
• if you chose the first option in both cases, then you’re probably high on the
“happiness index.” • If you selected the second option in both
cases, you possess the typical qualities of someone with a high IQ. As research has shown, those with powerful
intellectual abilities are the most capable of solving evolutionary tasks, and they adapt
more quickly to new environments (in this case, highly populated areas of big cities). These people are better at managing the stress
of a metropolis, and they don’t need support from their friends. Therefore, they can survive on their own. • If you chose different options, then you’ve
probably found a happy medium between happiness and intelligence. Have you tried these simple tests? Would you agree with the results? Share your thoughts in the comments! Don’t forget to hit the like button below

    Then am I a genius? I saw both directions and I could choose which one to see

  • Reply Kaela Creighton November 13, 2019 at 11:44 pm

    I didn't even get that on the IQ questions because I'm schizophrenic. I have a rock for a brain. I assume until you gave me more info that, "Can people live in highly populated areas? Of course, it's popular! It's not that I can't read. I'm used to it and read all the time, but I do not like reading novels. I do it anyway because it helps me, but I'll go for a science book first. I'm not smart. My IQ is only 116 and shows schizophrenia with deficits in many areas. Meanings are incredible to me. Just look at my icon.

  • Reply Kaela Creighton November 13, 2019 at 11:49 pm

    My mother is, or was, a genius. She's weird and likes science, too, but she can do it on advanced levels. I'm fairly sure she's pickled her brain by now, but sometimes, on facebook, she will not understand a line with no context. She's always been like that. Just because you're smart, doesn't guarantee wisdom.

    In IQ test I choose 2nd option in first question and 1st option in 2nd question. Pls tell me what's my IQ result.

  • Reply Asperger Art November 14, 2019 at 10:44 pm

    Both are easy, as if you ask "the voice in the video is male of female?" it is pretty clear, of course I see what you trying to do there, but it's clear what is the right answer

    If this video is accurate then there should be another voice telling me the same ?? the mask is easy to see.. took two seconds. IQ I got more intellectual.. I've relocated several times and so answered quick. The correct description for schizophrenia is audio illusion. I don't have schizophrenia, there is internal and external. Just for awareness and mental health issue are a sensitive topic.
