    what you see in these visuals may change according to how you differentiate the items you organize in your visual perception


    decide which parts of these images seem to be the figure and the ground of the composition

    I see the white part of the image as the object first in all of them. But I can see the other image easily, at will. Except the last one. I only saw the young woman, and it took quite a concerted effort to pick out the old woman.

    I've always been confused about exactly what we're supposed to get out of an exercise like this. What is it supposed to mean if someone sees one of the images one way or another first or has difficulty distinguishing one aspect of the image?

    as far as l know if you see the black part as figure it may give a clue about your level of sensitiveness to different stimuli

    Re: what do you see in your perceptual field ?

    I see the chess piece picture as chess pieces. I see the figures but the chess pieces always look real.

    I can not flip the last one. I can't find the old crone and I have seen the picture before and know that when
    I do see her it will be difficult to flip back to the girl.

    Am I stark ravin' bonkers?
