Seeing Faces

Post by LovelyLadyLux »

I sometimes think I'm daft or must have a screw loose but I often see 'faces' in certain things. Anytime I look at a pansy I automatically see a happy face.

Are there any other things you see faces in?

This si a condition, said to be those more "right brained" people. I see faces in rocks and objects in the clouds, so I guess that put me in that fold as well. Its called pareidolia. 8)

"There is an universal tendency among mankind to conceive all beings like themselves, and to transfer to every object, those qualities, with which they are familiarly acquainted, and of which they are intimately conscious. We find human faces in the moon, armies in the clouds; and by a natural propensity, if not corrected by experience and reflection, ascribe malice or good- will to every thing, that hurts or pleases us". --David Hume*
