[color=darkred]Research has shown that schizophrenic people score better at this test than normal people.

In the center of this image u see a grey circle with a pattern, surrounded by a white circle with a pattern.
Outside of this white circle u see 8 smaller circles



Poll: Which of the outer circles best matches the grey center circle?

- circle 1
- circle 2
- circle 3
- circle 4
- circle 5
- circle 6
- circle 7
- circle 8



*There is no point in cheating, because u will only fool urself.

I'm not sure I understand the scoring??

I choose number 3. (before seeing the results) It was close between 2 & 3 but, it was noticeably more correct.

What was the correct answer?

I chose circle 3, but none of the circles really match it.

And this test proves? That......... hmm. Oh yeah, that schizophrenic people score better at this test than normal people.

But I'm not schizophrenic.

I chose circle five. Then after I chose it I used the color checker in firefox to check the color code of the color of the circle..... it was 5

Color Code: c2c3c4

The right answer is 5.

The success may actually be linked to a weakness in a brain mechanism called contextual processing, which is responsible for picking out relevant sensory information from the barrage of stimuli a person constantly experiences.

Because vision depends on low-level contextual processing, the researchers, led by Steven Dakin of University College London, devised an experiment to test a person's ability to discriminate one contrasting pattern from another. A disc filled in with a medium-contrast pattern was placed in the center of a larger disc that had a high-contrast pattern. When placed one on top of the other, the difference in contrast appears negligible, when it is really 40 percent. The researchers hypothesized that schizophrenics would not judge the center disc in context of the larger one and therefore not recognize the visual distraction that creates the illusion. In fact, 12 out 15 schizophrenics more accurately judged the contrast of the center disc than did a group of 20 participants who do not suffer from the illness.


So do schizo's see reality better than normal people do?

I dont know. According to the experiment, number 8 was most popular with normal people.



Maybe the colors arent the same as in the real experiment.

I tapped into my artistic skills for it though, I don't think I'm schizo. I just used my eyes to compare and number 5 matched perfectly to my eyes.

I chose circle 3, because the voices in my head told me to do so.

I feel so much better now.

I picked 3 but my invisible friend chose 2. We argued over it for a while and decided to go with 5 because that's 2 and 3 added together. That means we, I mean I picked the right one. That doesn't make us, I mean me crazy does it?
