What do you see?

Maybe it depends on your age?

Are any of these items moving? Or are they perfectly still??

One teacher said, "I felt like they were all moving... but slowly. Kind of like, they were breathing."

The pictures above are used to test the level of stress a person can handle.

The slower the pictures move, the better your ability of handling stress.

Allegedly, criminals that were tested see them spinning around madly; however senior citizens and kids see them standing still.

None of these images are animated - they are perfectly still.

I don't know if this is real/true or not, but it's interesting! And, if you do happen to see the images spinning around madly, please take me off your aggregator list. Thank You.

What if they seem to spell out redrum? :-o

Those are interesting. I see them moving really slowly, but if I focus on a portion of the picture, it will look perfectly still. In general, though, I wouldn't say I handle stress all that well. Right now, for example, I am worried because I posted a comment right below Suiram the Redrumer's comment. Now I'm afraid that he'll notice me.

Oooh, might need to cut back on the coffee ... ;-)

None of them really moved for of them kind of twitched a couple of times. I guess I'm really good at handling stress. Actually, I already pretty much knew that. I tend to clamp down on the emotion when things get crazy. Lots of deep, calming breaths. ;)

Stupid blogger deleted my comment. Grr.

Anyway, they're kind of slow but that's probably because Effexor keeps me from getting stressed. If I wasn't on Effexor, I probably would be seeing redrum (and Marius, that was hilarious!).

The 1st one was moving slowly. I guess that I handle stress well - if you call crying and sobbing for hours in my bedroom handling it!
Oh, it could be my meds, maybe, my Wellbutrin. I wonder how they would be spinning if I were to be off of them for a few days??
interesting test.

Marius: euh... ok... 8-0

flurrious: I'd be afraid too.

tNb: :-)

lizgwiz: You're so zen! ;-)

greenduckies: You're unlucky with that here lately (the desapearing comments). Effexor does wonder, doesn't it! ;-)

Biddie: I'm hoping you're not too too stress.

Kara: Or you could have a drink! ;-)
