Do you see faces in random objects?
Like Jesus in a toast?
If yes, you might be neurotic, a new study suggests.
166 undergraduates had to make two standard psychological tests that assess the ‘big five’ personality traits and emotional moods. Researchers at the NNT Communication Science Laboratory in Tokyo then presented each of the participants the same pattern of random dots, asking them to draw whatever forms they recognized in the dots.
Those who were more likely to recognize faces, plants, and animals, scored higher for neuroticism.
This psychological phenomenon in which we perceive patterns in random data is called Pareidolia.
According to researchers only extremely neurotic people see faces in almost all everyday objects.
