    But we probably knew this

    Neurotic People May Be More Likely to See Faces in Objects

    Those who scored higher for neuroticism on the psychological tests were more likely to see faces in the dots, as well as seeing plants and animals. Women were more likely than men to see objects where there were none.
    So all those people with their Jesus bagels and Elvis ice cubes? Yeah.

    I don't buy into pscho-babble. It's called pareidolia, and everyone experiences it.

    I don't. I always thought I was the weirdo because I don't see faces or animals and can't even imagine clouds into stuff. Turns out everyone else is the weirdo.
