Rotating Mask Test: Hollow Mask Illusion Schizophrenia

Here are the answers for this hollow face illusion psychology:


1. The mask is convex only on one side.

2. The mask is rotating in the right direction.

This is called Hollow-Face illusion or Hollow-Mask illusion, an optical illusion that makes people perceive a concave mask of a face that appears as a normal convex face.

What It Means If…

1. You answered both the questions wrong? 

Then, you are a healthy person! Your brain inclines towards self-deceit. You can consider artificial forms and extra shadows or details correcting the picture. Whether you want or not you can swallow the hook of the illusion. 

2. You answered just one question correctly? 

Then it’s time for you to have a talk with a psychiatrist.

The reason you see the hollow mask illusion is because people with schizophrenia are unable to make a connection between what they know and what they see. Illusions play with our preconceived ideas, that a person with schizophrenia lacks. This is why they aren’t fooled

They think it is concave and rotates in one direction. People with schizophrenia and psychotic symptoms have a reduced tendency to interpret any kind of ambiguous 3D object as convex.

3. You answered both questions correctly? 

You may be a genius who can see through illusions. Those geniuses have both types of thinking i.e they can think like a normal healthy person as well as like a schizophrenic.

Genius personalities can switch between both types of thinking. So, they can see the illusion just like a normal or healthy person but also see the catch immediately. Their brain may stop perceiving the deceit if they want to. 

Are you a genius, schizophrenic, or someone ordinary? Let us know the results of this optical illusion test of this rotating face mask illusion in the comments below. And if you enjoyed taking this test, share it with your friends and folks 🙂
