Do You See Faces in Inanimate Objects? Here's What's Wrong with Your Brain
What do you see when you look at the above photo, or any electric outlet? If you see a face, you're probably neurotic.
Researchers at the NTT Communication Science Laboratories in Tokyo, Japan, conducted a study that revealed pareidolia, or the phenomenon of seeing faces in inanimate shapes and objects, is a feature found in neurotic people.
To reach this conclusion, scientists assessed volunteers' personality types. Afterwards, the subjects were shown randomly placed dots on a sheet of paper and asked to report what shapes they interpreted from the image, that is, if they saw any shapes at all.
When looking at the results, the researchers discovered that those who tested higher in neuroticism—a more negative emotional state—were more likely to see faces in the images shown during the test.
What does seeing faces have to do with being a glass-half-empty kind of person? According to the researchers, those who are more likely to have high levels of anxiety and negative thoughts are on the lookout for threats. So the people who see faces are picking up danger cues, even if they're simply buttons on a remote.
