A psychologist and a company created a series of illusion images to help aspiring entrepreneur
Company Funding Circle has designed a test working closely with psychologist Dr Rebecca Spelman that reveals which type of entrepreneur a person really is.
The test consists in five illusion images which, according to what they show to the viewers, should reveal a particular set of skills that can be brought to a business environment.
Seeing a cloth rather than a dog or a crocodile instead of an island would mean playing a different part in a company.
According to Funding Circle there are three types of professionals – Big Picture Thinker, Go To Person and Business Creative – and can be individuated thanks to this test.
Business Creative people have exceptional ability to adapt and react to any business situation, it is claimed.
This type of professionals are especially motivated to succeed within the workplace and will be at the forefront of how a company develops.
The second category individuated by Funding Circle and Dr Spelman is Big Picture Thinker.
People falling in this category are said to not necessarily worry about all the details and to be able to often solve complex problems by using only their instincts.
They are also seen as reliable and always with a plan in place to get the job done.
Finally, a ‘Go To’ Person is everyone’s best friend, according to the test.
‘Go To’ people are able to push their colleagues to achieve heights they thought they never could and are emotionally intelligent and energetic.
Moreover, they naturally fall into a leadership role.
Those seeing a skull in this image have an exceptional ability to adapt to any business situation
Depending on wheter an observer can see a skull or a light bulb first in the above image, is an indicator of how creative he is.
Those seeing the skull should have the traits of a Business Creative person.
Those individuating a light bulb should be ‘Big Picture Thinkers’.
A person seeing a lynx here is a ‘Big Picture Thinker’, the test claims
People seeing a lynx before a bird in this picture falls into the category of Big Picture Thinker.
If a person sees the bird first, though, the test says he is a ‘Go To’ type of entrepreneur.
People seeing a crocodile in this image should be motivated to succeed within the workplace
A viewer seeing a crocodile has an exceptional ability to adapt and react to any business situation, the test claims, meaning he would fall into the Business Creative category.
Those spotting an island, instead, are ‘Go To’ people.
People seeing a mother in this picture are, according to the test, reliable
A person spotting a baby in this image is emotionally intelligent and energetic, which, according to the test, makes him a ‘Go To’ person.
Someone seeing a mother, on the other hand, would be a Big Picture Thinker.
Seeing a dog in this image could mean being a natural leader
If an aspiring entrepreneur sees a dog before a cloth in the picture above he is likely to have enhanced leadership skills.
He falls into the test’s ‘Go To’ Person category.
Otherwise, he is a Big Picture Thinker.
The test was created as part of a campaign called Made to do More.
The initiative was launched by Funding Circle after a research showed that, despite over half of Brits (56%) think they have the skills to run their own business, only 13% of Brits believe they are entrepreneurial.
