    hi Rab:)
    old lady & young.
    Old looking down & young looking away.
    Young: can afford to as there is too much time.
    Old: sign of weakening as body sags.
    I think.

    I know Purg this is an old picture which has been used in many psychology teachings, to test many different techniques, this is not the point. I want the test for me, I want to know which image you saw first then which image you saw next and if you can describe the two, thanks sweetie.

    I saw the young woman looking away and it actually took some time and effort for me to see the old woman looking down. (almost afraid to ask what that says about me…)

    aaah ok, well I saw the old lady first, her nose was clear and because I knew this picture from before, I know about the younger lady.

    Hi Rabab🙂
    At first, second and third glance all I could see was the Young woman. I actually had to stare and stare before I finally saw the Old woman.

    The young woman I see is a lady who has just had a lovers’ spat. I imagined her to be in a horse-drawn carriage and averting her face from her lover who has displeased her. It’s possible that there is something spoiled about her. She looks like someone who is used to having her whims pandered to🙂

    The old woman I see is a woman huddled up in her fur coat. Like many old people she lives more in her past memories than in her present surroundings, and this is indicated by her downcast eyes.

    Gigi, descriptively

    Hey Rabab,
    How are ya sweets? well, on first glance, i saw the old, sad, quite frail woman, wearing a mink coat. It took 10 secs to stumble upon the elegant young woman, with the long swan-like neck. Wonder why she was looking away? My theory is, there’s something ahead that she’s not ready to face, whilst the older woman has nothing to lose.

    I’ve seen this pic many times before. Last time I did was last semester while studying perception in psychology, yet I always struggle to find the old woman. Btw, did you notice that both women share the same eyelash? Right for the old woman and left for the young one.

    I first saw the young one looking away & right away I saw the old one looking down. The young looks restless to me, the old one looks sad & like she gave up ..
    an image just crossed my mind😉 that the two women are one, at different periods of time, standing on one spot along the years waiting for someone who never came!

    First the old woman who is looking down , thinking..waiting “not much time left now”
    after Staring : a young lady who is showing attitude coz she has all the time (she thinks)

    cheers

    Ok I also saw this picture many times in a lot of my classes…I always saw the old lady first…I remember when I saw the picture for the first time I had some difficulties seeing the younger lady…I don’t know I guess the big nose of the older lady was easier to notice in my case🙂
