A simple way to test your IQ: find the umbrella
Scientists often use puzzles and optical illusions to investigate how the brain creates perceptions of reality. There are even hypotheses that in the long run, regular brain training with intellectual challenges can reduce the risk of neurological diseases.
An interesting puzzle is gaining popularity online. A small umbrella is hiding among a flock of ostriches. Try to spot it in 8 seconds.
At first glance, this optical illusion may seem complicated, but visual puzzles are designed to allow sharp eyesight and an observant mind to scan an image in seconds. Try to evaluate the picture in perspective, not focusing on the details, but paying attention to unusual shapes.
If you can solve such puzzles in less than 10 seconds, you have the ability to solve problems quickly and are naturally endowed with intelligence and observation. Psychologists often associate this ability with a high IQ, but it is better to take special tests to determine the level of mental abilities.
