AN optical illusion is leaving people baffled and “disoriented” with Facebook users completely divided over what’s shown in the image.
The picture shows what many think is a man with a backpack walking into the snow-covered woods, but some see a cute black dog instead.

While an overwhelming amount could have sworn the image shows a person from behind, it is actually a picture of black poodle running towards the camera
The dog’s tail appears at first glance to be the back of a person’s head, while its face is easily mistaken for the bag on his back.
Hundreds of viewers realised their initial take on the image was off after analysing the photo time and time again.
One person commented: “I had to take my glasses off to see that one.”

And another agreed: “I had to stare at it before I could see it.”
One user, who spotted the pooch immediately, wrote: “Why can’t I see the man? I only see the dog.”
But one person was left unconvinced by the image and insisted it was, in fact, a man.
They said: “It’s a guy in a sick jacket and hat running into the woods. I can tell by the gait that it’s a person.”
Many people saw a pooch and didn’t see the man at all
But people were completely divided with some seeing the man
Others thought it was clear, with one person writing: “I’m curious as to how the people who saw a man running were able to explain away the fact that running man has a giant dogs head coming out of them.”
“This is ridiculous, all most people can see is a dog,” another person agreed.
Fabulous spoke with Lee Chambers, an Environmental Psychologist and Wellbeing Consultant, who revealed what your answer says about your personality.
“Where your eyes first focus on the picture certainly plays a part in the perception of your image, but your current psychological state can also play a role in whether you see a dog approaching or a human escaping,” he said.

“If you are currently anxious, you are much more likely to see the man escaping, seeing the image in a more threatening viewpoint.
“This will also be more likely if you are more pessimistic or less easy to trust others, seeing something moving away rather than approaching, or a human possibly acting in a sinister manner.”
But, he said, if you are currently in a “place of calm confidence”, you are more likely to see the features of the dogs face moving towards you.
He continued: “If you’re are an optimistic individual, you are more likely to see something coming into your life and see the dog and embrace the snowy vista surrounding it.”
