We love optical illusions – images that tickle the mind and make us scratch our heads over what they really represent. Just like the number-based illusion that went viral, a new image has taken the internet by storm.

“If you’re right-brained, you’ll see a fish.”
“If you’re left-brained, you’ll see a mermaid.”

This optical illusion has gone so viral that it has even reached celebrities and writers, among many others. Everyone has a different response.
