Fix your attention on the dot in the middle of the accompanying figure. Do you see faces or a vase? How often does it reverse? Does any of this mean anything? The answer to the last question is yes, according to two Texas A&M psychologists, who found what they believe is a correlation between the "high reversers" and such characteristics as creativeness and idealism. Using 25 undergraduates each from the schools of architecture and business administration, Judith and Bruce Bergum had their subjects view six such figures for 60 seconds each and count the reverses. The potential architects reported 67 percent more reverses than the business students. And on two self-perception tests, the architects saw themselves as more creative, original, moody and idealistic than did the business students. The Bergums, whose work was reported in the March issue of Psychology Today, also gave the tests to a more random sample of 59 female and 69 male students and got a similar correlation; the top 30 reversers saw themselves as more creative and more idealistic than the bottom 30. There was no significant difference between men and women. Other studies by the two psychologists have shown that seeing oneself as creative is characteristic both of professors who publish a lot and of inventors. Thus, they say, the rapid reversals may mean that creative people literally "see" the world differently.
