Identifying a schizophrenic is not always easy. Different psychiatric tests are frequently used to help physicians better understand the psychological conditions of their patients. Getting a closer look inside a patient’s head can help a doctor determine how to help.

2 questions that can only be answered by a genius or a schizophrenic

Next, a psychiatric test is presented. The next two questions can only be answered by a schizophrenic or a genius . For the most accurate results, answer the questions based on how you feel. Focus on what you actually see in the images below, rather than how you think they should look like.


1. Is the mask convex on one or two sides?

2. Does the mask rotate in one direction or two?

Check your answers below

1. The mask is convex on one side only.
2. The mask is rotating in one direction, clockwise.

If you answered both questions wrong, you are in the majority. If one of the two answers was obvious to you, you could be special.

Here’s why: The brain of a healthy person often leans toward self-deception. Such a person naturally forms artificial shapes and shadows to “correct” the image and turn it into something that makes more sense.

The mind of a schizophrenic does not work this way. The brain of a schizophrenic cannot make a connection between the details. Instead, they see the image as it really is: a concave mask rotating in one direction.

However, seeing the truth in these images does not mean that you are a schizophrenic. It could mean that you are an excellent observer or a genius.

Wondering what role a genius plays in all of this? The brain of a schizophrenic and a genius really are not that different. A genius can see the image in the same way as a schizophrenic. They can also see the image in the same way as most people. Your brain is capable of both types of thinking. They see the illusion, but they are also able to grasp the illusion and point out the deception.
