Rorschach Card: What Is It?


We had some “Rorschach test cards” in the past, where your assignment was to guess what they really represented. Now let’s see if you can “crack” this one!

If I only showed you the image on the right (with no accompanying #gif animation) – would you be able to see the most probable solution? Most people don’t see it. Yet, after they are presented with the animation below, static card they were puzzled with just minutes ago – immediately becomes recognisable!

  • I thought it was either a dog or the extended simulation of Pangea. ;)

    It’s a unicorn

  • Dan

    Awwwwww, it’s a puppy!

    Rorschach pro-tip: Always bet it’s a dalmatian.

    – “It’s a curled up dalmatian, with his head on his paws.”
    – “It’s a dalmatian, jumping for a frisbee.”
    – “It’s a sitting dalmatian, with a tilted head, looking straight at me!”

  • C. Blue

    I saw the dog, but i thought he was a “pointer,” not a “trotter.”

  • Phil

    Really? I got it fairly quickly, although was a little unsure as to whether was a dog or a horse until I saw the animation.

  • László Folgerts

    I guessed it right away

  • Vincent

    That illusion is kinda good but I think I already saw this type of illusion before. But still, amazing!

  • Jackson

    Saw the dalmation on the first card. Animation sells it for sure though.

  • Lauren

    A Dalmatian.
    P.S. First Comment

  • Syed

    Easy – I saw it in the email preview without even checking the link / animation.

    A Dalmation Dog.

  • Bandit

    A dalmation of course.

  • The Doctor

    I saw a dalmatian before I saw the GIF.

  • Amy Goldsworthy

    First comment yay!!!!!!!!!!! it is a spotty dog by the way!

  • steve

    I saw a cheetah running towards the right before I saw the animation

  • Rachey

    i thought it was a world map!

  • Hypersapien

    Please don’t put the giveaway on the front page. Make us click through to see it so we can guess without having the solution thrown at us.

    The Gif helped me a lot – It prevented for wasting my time trying to find something else other than the Dalmatian!

    P.S. – There isn’t any cow on the “Woman with Hat” linked illusion, right?

  • Rick

    Way too easy, especially moving!

  • Halidom

    It looked like a Dalmatian as soon as I looked at it.

  • Jennyspark

    awesome! First!

  • Chloe

    Hmm, that’s interesting….when I saw the still picture I immediately saw the figure. Maybe that’s how my brain works?

  • crazycandycreator

    I thought it was a dalmatian instantly even before seeing the GIF!

  • Sandy

    I knew it was a dog right away. I could see the snout, the legs, the tail, and the ear.

  • Depot Beach

    crap, i thought it was a hot air balloon.
