An optical illusion image is catching up on social media and attracting a deluge of comments. The image can reveal what kind of thought process people have and whether they have trouble multitasking.
The image shows a silhouette of a man in a sprinting pose and asks users to identify where the figure is running towards or away from them.
The image was first released by Factories, which said it is part of an ongoing project to decipher whether people have “male” or “female” brains.
When you see the man running towards you
Fact Factory said these users have a more “masculine” brain. Further describing the traits of such people, it said that they try to solve their problems and overcome the difficult obstacles of life using their analytical skills and a good reason.
It also said that these people learn quickly when they become curious about something. “That’s when you put all your energy into it until you have an idea of how to go about it.”
However, such people are not good at multitasking, according to the website. They want to focus on one thing at a time. When they come up with an idea or have strong opinions about something, they are ready to back it up with convincing arguments because they are confident in themselves, their focus and attention skills.

These people have a more “feminine” brain, Factories said. This means that their analytical skills and reasoning are at their maximum.
These people rely on their senses and reasoning and do not rush into making a decision. Their brains are at their best when they’re immersing themselves in something creative, Factories added.
It also said that these people are great multitaskers and have great memories. They can always count on their intuition and excellent senses.
Neuroscientists have been working for decades to break down the myths and stereotypes about how the female and male brains work. Renowned neuroscientist Daphna Joel even launched a course on the topical subject at Tel Aviv University in 2009.
But the debate still continues, as some scientists believe the whole concept of gender and gender roles needs to be reconsidered, while others say it makes no sense to classify some parts of the brain as female and male.
