With this test, psychologists can understand if you are a genius or schizophrenic with only two questions!
October 31, 2017
Identifying cases of schizophrenia is a very thorny matter even for the best psychologists. This is because it is a disorder that can be masked or confused with so many other pathologies.
A tool used by psychology to facilitate diagnosis is the so-called "hollow mask test" in which a rotating mask is displayed to the patient and, after careful observation, two questions are asked.
Try to submit yourself to this test, it may reveal to you aspects of your personality of which you are unaware.
1. Is the mask convex on one side or both?
2. In how many directions does the mask rotate?
The answers will be obvious to many of you:
1. The mask is convex on both sides.
2. The mask rotates in two directions.
A healthy person will give these answers because their imagination tends to alter shadows and points of light that actually do not exist. Schizophrenics are, however, very little, or in some cases not at all, endowed with imagination. For example, they have a lot of difficulty in understanding an abstract speech, and in the mask test, they will see a mask that is concave (hollow) on one side and convex on the other, rotating in one direction. Likewise, a genius is a person conscious of their imagination, who sees the masks both in one and the other way and their genius translates into being able to use their imagination as they like.
