What Do You See Above?

Got another one of these, what appears to be Rorschach test cards. Tell me, what do you see hidden in the card on your right? It may appear like randomly scattered pieces at first, without any obvious meaning, but when you finally see what they represent – there’s no going back. How long did it take you to see the illusion? If you’re still struggling, the answer is hidden somewhere inside the file ;)

Regarding my health, I’m getting a little better – thanks for the concern you expressed in some of your previous comments. It’s probably just a common cold, and hopefully I should be back up operating at full speed from Monday!

  • Jilly

    it reminded me of a horse, but I thought it can’t be horse because of that bump on his back ;D …it didn’tt occur to me there might be a rider on his back

  • josephine

    I don’t see anything, someone help!

  • AC

    I do not see it! I am not so great with these. Any help?

  • Guest

    it’s a horseman

  • petting a dragon

    I see a man riding a horse

  • Muncher23

    Nice one.. I thought I had a great eye for things like this, but after 10 minutes of ‘nothing’ I had to ask my daughter.. She saw it in less than 5 seconds.. Amazing..

  • JDPower

    Been staring at this for ages and can’t see it, thought it was possible a crab with pincers in the air till I saw the clue. I’ve moved closer, further away, squinted and still nothing. Even with the clue, I can make out what might be horses legs but can’t see anything above them that fits in.

  • Anon

    its a horse and rider, obviously

  • I see a horse and rider. Cool illusion :)

  • Jessie

    i can’t see it :/ i’ve been looking for 20 mins :P help!

  • Jessie

    I can’t see it. I’ve been looking for 20 mins :P Help!

  • Falon

    I see either a rider on a horse, or a cartoon dolphin. =)


  • appolo

    Good but it only took me a couple seconds to find the…

  • Simona

    I think it is a person riding a horse maybe???

  • Nizati

    It took me ten seconds… My suggestion, focus on the large blob in the center.. What does it resemble to you? @_@ Then again.. with this as my sister’s hobby, I see it too often maybe.

  • Valerie

    Yeah I saw it after about 3 or 4 minutes. And now of course I can only see it and nothing else.

  • Cyprien


  • Jeff

    I saw it almost instantly. Maybe I’ve seen it before, but I don’t remember.

  • Cyprien

    Now I know…man on the…;P

  • Mary

    So are you going to tell us what she saw?

  • Darkmind

    I see a man riding a horse, and it’s pretty obvious for me. Am I normal?

  • Denise

    It’s a man on horseback riding left across the screen. Took me a minute. Nice

  • bbb

    i THINK i sees a person…?

  • Nepenthe

    I see a horse and rider, headed to the left.

  • Great illusion! It took me about five, uninterupted minutes.I wasn’t sure so I didn’t look at it for a while and sure enough when I looked back it was as plain as day. Nice job, and glad to hear you are feeling better, yes indeed, yes indeed!

  • bbb

    or a man on a horse

  • Digit

    This one has me stuck on and image of … W.A Mozart ?? anyone else see it ?

  • AidenBlaine

    It’s a horse and a horce racer/rider.
    The half circle up at the top is his hat, and the blob to the very right is the horse’s tail.
    Ill leave the rest of the finding for you.
    Took me like 15 seconds! I was so proud of myself.

  • gm

    What is it?

  • i see a face kinda winking at you.. is that right? lol

  • gm

    Is is someone riding a horse?

  • alison

    i see a man riding a horse.

  • josephine

  • Awesome Anonymous

    i think it kinda looks like darth vader from a distance probably wrong tho.

  • Colin

    I do not see anything :/ Someone please tell us lol

  • Tony

    Had to ask my daughter too. Yep, less than 5 seconds.

  • Mii

    i thought i saw a dog person but thats not it so i am lost.

  • Its a guy on a horse. in less i missed something.

  • rosane

    Can’t figure it out either

  • Hetel

    I saw it IMMEDIATELLY when I first saw this :D I still do think I have a great eye for such illusions ;)

  • Emma

    I couldn’t see it at first. Came back to it a few times…i might be wrong but it looks like a rider/knight on a horse. That’s my guess…

  • Linda D

    It looks like a man riding a horse.

  • Patricia

    It looks to me like a jockey riding horseback.

  • Chelsea

    It kind of looks like George Washington?

  • Vasiliy

    I have noticed the horse+rider in a second even before I read the title, may be because I didn’t try to see anything, just glanced around my rss reader.

  • Farewell

    I saw it the moment I looked at it :P it’s a jockey on a horse for those who can’t pick it :]

  • joonre

    the answer hidden somewhere in the file? what file?


  • D-PAC

    Look at the name of the picture…

  • Aquarius

    It took me one second..not too hard. Looking at the picture from a distance will help. And when it still looks like some scattered pieces just move your mouse over the picture for the clue, can’t miss.

  • Chris

    is it the grim reaper?

  • Jessie

    oh i see it now. As soon as i looked at it again i saw it :P it appears to be a person wearing robes riding a horse/donkey. (:

  • Jester

    ARGH!!!! What is it????

  • Instantly I saw a face, but then a horse and a mantled knight appeared.

    Am I mad?

  • NK

    It’s a knight riding a horse.

  • Yurix

  • MTGC

    No veo nada, parece como una cara.

    I see a man on horseback, not sure what you guys think!

  • Jasmin

    I do belive it is a little man riding a horse did anyone else see it?

  • catherine

    didn’t get it till i hovered over the pic.

  • Pat

    I see a face. How can you not see it?

  • Bob

    I think its a guy on a horse

  • Mercalus

    I see a person facing me, but head turned to the his right(my left).

  • Korahn

    Not sure if it counts as an actual Rorschach test, but still pretty cool. If there are multiple things that can be seen, I’m only seeing a man on a horse. Of course, that COULD be because I’ve been playing red Dead Redemption a lot lately, lol.

  • Gina

    a man on a horse?

  • Sierra

    I saw a close up of a man and woman kissing, as well as an adult and child sitting on a bench, with the adults arm resting on the child’s shoulder.

  • TS7

    It’s a horseback rider, saw it right away

  • MikeyVee

    all i can make out is a person riding a bike

    If you want a (very obvious) hint, just click on the picture and look at the URL.

    Ok I give up… what is it apart from random lumps of black ink?

  • OMG, what is that rabbi doing to that nun!?!?!?!!?

  • ME

    wow I can’t see it

  • Andrew

    Wow people, it’s a man on a horse.

  • I saw a man on a horse, then a sad child looking up and over his shoulder….

  • DXC

    I didn’t see it at all until I found you’re little /hint/

    That’s a very clever optical illusion. For anybody that can’t see it: it’s moving left.

  • juan

    I think is a man and a horse, galloping…

  • Geri

    if u move cursor over pic, theres a clue. it says rider illusion. HAHA.

  • It’s much easier to spot when it’s smaller I find. Took me a while, even used the file name as a hint. :P

  • Tonya Davis-Stinson

    This one is driving me nuts. I cannot see anything and I’ve been staring at it for at least the past 15 minutes.

  • i see nothing

    can someone please explain?

  • amy

    is it someone riding a horse?

  • Dolphin

    I saw it as soon as I looked at it…Hint for struggling people:Giddy up!

  • jen

    saw a ‘bust’ immediately – face and shoulders – more i look less i see. Now not sure?

  • TheRien

    I can’t see anything either… the file is called rider? I can’t see any sort of rider whatever rider I should see anyway…

  • Swarthy

    I kind of see a man riding a horse but only because I’ve been staring at it. There are 4 legs and a tail but I still can’t quite see it all.

  • says

    It is so easy. It is someone who is riding a horse.

  • chuck

    is it a guy riding a horse

  • klca

    can’t see it but my 7 yr old son said it looks like a guy on a horse.

  • polarbearking

    would someone please email me the answer because I think I’ve got it, but I’m not entirely convinced.

  • anonym

    what is it?

  • ann

    it’s a person riding a horse…of course!

  • HIM

    Is a man on a horse?

  • david

    Horse and rider

  • Antti Heikkinen

    I did see it after a while, but I still also rather see a portrait of a man, or actually 2 different ones.

  • mitch

    The further back you go the easier it is to see. If you click on the picture look at the smaller of of the two images from distance and its becomes clear.

  • Monique

    :O its a rider! oops.. should have i said it O_O

  • Rachelworld

    i see a man on a horse. my bro sees a woman’s face. i don’t get it..

    HELP!! I hav no idea wat it is!! can someone tel me??

  • andrew

    it looks to me like man on a horse.

  • qwertyuiop

    i can see a weird sort of face but i dont know whether thats right or not…

  • Crystal

    It is a person riding a horse. Took me a while to see. The left side of the picture is where the front of the horse is, the tail ending on the right side. Not the best illusion ever, but it’s ok.

  • lauren

    it kind of looks like a person riding a horse, but not enough to convince me that i’ve got the right answer – i feel like i’m looking at an assortment of clouds and am assigning any meaning that sort of resembles the shape.

  • Ivy

    It’s a galloping horse.

  • gennia11

    a face?

  • Unknown

    At first i saw it but i didnt know i was correct until i found the real answer

  • TheMissingLink

    i think its a rider on a horse.. but i dont know either…

  • Porcelain

    I see a guy riding a horse… sorry if I’m ruining it

  • A

    This is not a Rorschach test. Rorschach tests show an ambiguous shape, the interpretation of which can be used for psychoanalysis (the accuracy of this is to be debated). This is simply an example of both figure-ground and closure, which are gestalt principles our brains use to make sense of the information it gets from our eyes.

  • charly

    wow i dont think i know what it is but i see a man riding a horse….mostly likely wrong but it was the first thing i spotted. these are super cool. optical illusions are the best!


    what is this? i spent over 15 minutes serching, and still dont get this!

  • moo

    This was so obvious.. don’t know how you can’t see it. And its true, now I can see it I can’t go back. Damn brain.

  • For the people who can’t figure this out it’s a person riding a horse

  • somebody

    what is it? I don’t have a clue!

  • Rob

    All i see is a man in a Horse, is that it?

  • Rhiannon

    I see a man riding a horse.

  • KD

    Tried.. cant see…… i guess. its a mind game. when u try to look hard you cant see….. but as Muncher23’s daughter saw it in 5 seconds…… coz she dint try hard… ;)

  • Alan P-J

    I was having a lot of trouble with this until I looked at it from the other end of the room. Try it, it might work for you.

  • qwertyuiop

    wait a minute… i think it might be a horse…

  • Lauren

  • kami

    its true though as soon as you see it, it no longer looks like randomly scattered dots.

  • Meuri

    Maybe a horse and his knight!! But i’m not sure of that..
    Bye from italy!! :)

  • ira

    hold your mouse over the image and the file name appears. This is the clue. I wouldn’t have worked it out until I saw the title.

  • RubberBiscuit

    It’s driving me crazy! I can’t tell what it is. I have the same problem with stereograms. I know if I let my kids look at it, they will see it, but I want to see it first! LOL

  • Pascale Fortin

    I don’t think it’s that great. I do see it, but I don’t agree it’s a “once you see it there is no going back” kind of illusion.

  • At first I thought it was a picture of a mans head and shoulders but I see what it really is now! Although the head and neck of the ***** don’t look proportioned enough…

  • Arpan Gupta

  • Donna

    I see nothing but spots!

  • Gregory Padilla

    It’s a rider on a horse.

    I Also see a spaceship- a person fishing from a dock- a lemur having a beer- Floyd Landis competing fairly- a griffin punting a football- an owl kissing a puffin (maybe the puffin initiated it)- 19 ants getting a piece of cheese- a macaroni picture for mother’s day- one of those crabs from the original mario brothers that takes two hits from beneath to flip- and finally Admiral Ackbar declaring ‘It’s a trap!’

    No joke- I see it all.

  • Steve

    Nope I still don’t see anything. Friends on Facebook said they saw a puppy, an Amish girl, and even a bust of George Washington.

    take care,

  • William Lim ‘Nkm’ Rasaz

    a horse rider?

  • Myles

    try looking at from farther away as the image gets smaller it gets easier

  • Mars

    hover your cursor over the picture…
    you can see clearly the rider’s hat, in a sort of semi-circle shape. and you can count the horse’s legs.

  • pinkygirl

    i can see the man …but i cant see the horse!!

  • josephine

    oh my goodness, even though I know what I’m looking for I can’t find it, wow. If anyone can tell me what certain spots are, that would be great :D

    OH, I GOT IT!!! It phases in and out though, I was looking in between the pieces for a picture, this makes much more sense.

  • Narsuaq

    Hey, that never happens! I got this one in a matter of seconds. Or at least I hope I got the answer right. Is is a man riding a horse?

  • you could actually see it right away.. xD

  • This one is a little too vague for me. The other things I can see look just as vivid and intentional as the horse and rider.
