This illusion divides the web: How many legs can you see in this picture?

Everyone is different; that’s a simple fact. There are more than seven billion of us on this planet, and every single one is unique.

Think about it. How fun would it actually be if everyone was exactly the same? One of the things that make life worth living is meeting new people along the way to exchange experiences, opinions, knowledge, and much more. That would be impossible if everyone went through the exact same journey in life.   

Therefore, it is fascinating to see how our perceptions can ultimately vary from person to person. We intend to test that today.

Below, you’ll see a picture that had a pretty split reception online, simply because people see different things in it.

The challenge below is a so-called optical illusion—an image designed to deceive the human eye.

Focus your eyes

The first thing you see in a visual illusion will probably change the more you look into it.

In other words, it is essential to take a good look at the image and focus as much as you can.

Since the picture has been around for a long time, many answers have come forward, but none has been chosen as the truly correct one.

The most common are 6, 7, 13, 14, and 15.

It also depends on whether you have to see the whole leg for it to count or if seeing just a bit is enough.

As I said, there is no agreed answer, but what do you think?

Did you find more than six legs in the picture?
