Now, the person behind the picture has explained what that can say not only about personality but also about confidence and outlook.

Author Miao Y Lamfrom the US, shared a photo with the caption: “What do you see first in this photo?”

And she believes your answers will tell if you’re a solid and trustworthy employee or if you have a more nervous personality.

She 51 seconds video on TikTok has now been viewed almost 2 million times, with debate raging over which eye should be drawn first – although the majority seem to agree with her opening choice.


If the first person you see is a shark, it clearly shows that you are a reliable person who can handle things independently at work.

And Mia predicts: “You will soon receive a lot of success in your career.

“You are a very responsible person and always do your best, so these upcoming achievements have been around for a long time.

“You are a great asset to any team and you know your worth.”

However, she thinks the past six months can be “quite stressful”, although thinks the rest of the year will be “smooth sailing” – adding: “And many of your dreams will come true. “


Mia believes that being first attracted to ocean-going ships is clearly what “very ambitious” people would do – but they can be held back by certain uncertainties.

She said: “Until now you have been anxious to face the unknown and just follow the expectations of those around you.”

But better personal news comes out, she thought – declaring: “You’ll soon meet someone who will be of great support and help to you.

“You want to change your life for the better and this person will help you do it.”

Many TikTok followers felt recognized, claiming the explanations were “correct” and “absolutely correct”.

However, the responses also showed different opinions about what caught the eye first, sharks or boats.

One commented: “I’ve seen sharks and the last six months have been difficult for me”, while another wrote: “I saw a shark for the first time and it was true, last six months Mine is stressful – let’s hope things get better.”

Another wondered: “How can you be so precise? The past six months have been sad.”

It was also suggested, “I’ve seen the shark so I’m waiting patiently” – as well as: “I think the boats are shark’s teeth.”

A separate commenter joked: “I’ve seen sharks but I don’t think I’m the best asset of the company where I work.”

However, a rare dissident asked: “Am I the only one who saw the boats first?”

Mia, who has more than 456,000 followers on TikTok, shares many similar optical illusions.

Recent discussions have revolved around whether what you see indicates you are easygoing or overthinking, an extroverted leader or a more compromiser – as well as the divide between the nostalgics and the nostalgic. doubters and naive people.

A craze that spread around the world was previously the debate over whether the wedding dress was blue and black or white and gold.

Celebrities including Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and Taylor Swift were among those joining a Twitter row about its color.

And Oscar-winner Billie Eilish caused controversy when she asked what color a pair of sneakers is, pink or green.
